Description:
Amazon Web Services (AWS) are seeking a Finance Analyst to join the EMEA AWS Commercial Sales Finance Team. This role is based in London and will involve partnering with the UK Commercial Sales team in the delivery of their business critical sales targets in 2021 and beyond.

The role:
The individual will need to be a self starter, confident working with ambiguity and with the ability to influence senior stakeholders. As a Finance Analyst you will be expected to dive deep into the data, understand trends and communicate insights to leadership. You will have joint ownership of a sales target with your business partner, thus not only will you be expected to be able to talk to past results in Monthly Business Reviews, but also work on forward looking sales strategy for the future success of your segment. As a business partnering role you will need to build strong relationships not only with the segment leader and account managers, but also with stakeholders in support functions across EMEA. Controllership will always be key to a finance role in Amazon, thus we expect this individual to challenge the business on decision making, ensuring the most efficient use and allocation of resources in order to drive maximum value for AWS. We are an EMEA wide team, therefore this role will also include project work and the requirement to be an EMEA wide Subject Matter Expert in a given topic as well.

AWS:
Amazon Web Services is a dynamic and rapidly growing business within Amazon.com. Amazon Web Services provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world. We provide organisations with building block web services that allow them to innovate faster and operate their software more cost-effectively. These services-in-the-cloud include on-demand compute capacity, storage, content delivery, querying of structured data, message queuing, and more. The AWS team is building and delivering the next generation of cloud computing that supports public AWS offerings like S3, EC2, and CloudFront. We are innovating new ways of building massively scalable distributed systems.

Amazon Web Services is the market leader and technology forerunner in the Cloud business. As a member of the AWS Finance team you will be at the forefront of this transformation, assisting a global list of companies that are taking advantage of a growing set of services and features to run their mission-critical applications. The successful candidate will implement and drive the core financial processes for the capacity planning of multiple fast growing services under AWS.

Basic Qualifications:
• Bachelor's degree in Finance, Accounting, Business, Engineering or a related discipline; + relevant experience
• Relevant finance qualification (CIMA.ACA.ACCA) or MBA,
• Proven expertise in finance and positions that require analysis and reporting financial results, business partnering and stakeholder management
