As a Senior Finance Analyst, you'll give us the visibility we need to drive Amazon forward. Finance teams are a constant adviser to the business. When our finances and programme performance are optimised, we can keep delivering an excellent experience for our customers and find new ways to support them. This role gives you the opportunity to see how we make business decisions as you gather all the insights that we need to shape our future.

As a Senior Finance Analyst, you'll play a core role in a number of projects at any one time. By tracking performance metrics, analysing data and building financial models, you'll identify where we can drive better efficiency and productivity. You'll also show us how different scenarios impact our business from a financial perspective, which is vital for many of our stakeholders to make business decisions.

This role will allow you to work independently, whilst also working closely with our partners to provide the insights they need.

Key job responsibilities

Use a range of metrics and models to forecast, link operational objectives to financials, and determine opportunities for improvement.

Explore data to ensure reporting accuracy, and share financial analysis with business partners to support strategic business decisions.

Produce a financial and operational plan to support business priorities, and lead on associated projects.

Support with training new team members and contribute to onboarding plans.

Maintain and build tools for your team to support knowledge sharing and help to standardise processes across EU teams.

About the team

Have you ever ordered a product on Amazon and, when the box arrived, you wondered how it got to you so fast? Have you wondered where it came from and how much it cost Amazon to deliver it to you?

Amazon Logistics, or AMZL, handles 'last mile' delivery duties in partnership with third-party distribution businesses. We utilise creative thinking and continuous improvement initiatives to get millions of physical products into the hands of our customers. Our goal is to make our customers' delivery experience as smooth as possible and roll out global delivery solutions for our newest concepts, like Amazon Fresh, Prime Now and Amazon Restaurants.

There are two sides to what we do. Our 'under the roof' associates process millions of products for dispatch to our delivery teams. Our team is people-focused and supportive, particularly as lots of our people work through the night. We focus mostly on operations, with 24/7 shifts in most of our locations.

Meanwhile, our 'on the road' people work with Amazon Flex - a network of delivery contractors. Every year, we continually raise the bar for customer experience with new, innovative delivery services. We look for new ways to overcome industry wide logistics challenges and new ideas to reduce our carbon footprint, supported by a portfolio of cutting-edge vehicles (including Electric Vehicles) and technology to help us do just that.

We are open to hiring candidates to work out of one of the following locations:
