Description:
Finance Business Partner

We are Amazon; we pioneer.
Since opening in 1995, we've been pushing the boundaries of possible further and further.

Year-on-year, we're growing more and more rapidly. To help us maintain this, we're seeking a savvy, motivated Finance Business Partner to join our world-class Fulfillment & Operations network. We need you to function as the go-to source of business intelligence, as you help our busy Operations to continue working as smart as possible.

You'll be joining one of the UK's Fulfillment Centers. These facilities are at the heart of Amazon's rapidly growing business: they're where we manage our fast-moving inventory. Our associate teams stow deliveries, pick products, package them up and ship them out: each of these groups have played their part in taking us where we are today.

It's in this logistics environment that you'll teach us a thing or two. You're the type of professional who knows how to spend time wisely, you sweat the financial details that matter, and you instinctively know which details don't add value.

Finance Business Partner responsibilities:

In your day-to-day, you firmly believe in the saying: "don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today". You will:

• Use your expertise in the collection, analysis and management of quantitative financial data, as you create meaningful reports,

• Define and promote business improvements, while recommending cost reductions,

• Leverage extensive data via root cause analysis to uncover any underlying process or finance related issues,

• Assist your facility with necessary improvements or process changes, as well as aiding the creation of new measures to bolster site productivity,

• Recommend, develop and implement policies and programmes that guide our Operations in maintaining (and improving) its competitive position and profitability,

• Lead the development of all weekly and monthly financial metrics, alongside all financial planning, forecasting and reporting models,

• Take care of continuous innovation regarding your area of expertise, as you aim to improve your deliverables, while making them more readily accessible for everyone,

• Work with data source providers and technology teams, ensuring that key financial decision data is accurate, automated and delivered in a timely fashion,

• As an analyst, you are a quick thinker: able to handle complex priorities while providing level-headed guidance, even during unexpected events.

Preferred Qualifications:
• Experienced with large-scale data mining and reporting tools (i.e. SQL, MS Access, Essbase, Cognos): you can provide recommendations for strategic decision-making,
• Demonstrable problem-solving ability, alongside previous analyst experience, particularly in root cause analysis,
• Highly analytical and detail-oriented, you possess a strong business sense,
• You combine your professional competency with an ability to develop new ideas, and creative solutions: you also have a track record of implementing these to great effect,
• Organised multitasker: you prioritise your workload, enabling you to meet tight deadlines, while achieving results, especially in a fast-paced, high-growth environment,
• You're a proven communicator, when working with multiple peer groups and varying levels of seniority,
• Previous analyst experience in the financial side of manufacturing, logistics or distribution centre processes is a nice to have.
