Have you ever ordered a product on Amazon and, when the box arrived, 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?

Our Customer Fulfillment network is renowned for being world-class, delivering packages to customers across the world. Our Finance teams don't just manage our books; they help drive the company forward by partnering closely with global cross-functional teams to support the growth of this rapidly expanding network; driving controllership, innovation, productivity, and cost-effective operations across the network in a fast paced environment. You'll employ data analysis to ensure your partners and leaders have the most up to date, reliable information, working collaboratively to make the best possible financial decisions. You'll make a huge impact, not just on the bottom line performance of your Fulfilment Centre, but on the overall customer experience, making history whilst having fun along the way!

We are looking for an analytical Finance Business Partner that is excited to join a tech company that is constantly improving and reimagining the logistics industry. You should be passionate about using data to solve big, complex and ambiguous problems. Be eager to continuously learn and improve your skills. You should be attentive to which details make all the difference. Do you want to contribute shaping the new standard of shopping? If so, come and join the Customer Fulfillment Finance Team.

• Leverage Customer Fulfillment metrics to identify cost out opportunities by linking up operations and financials.
• Earn trust of your business partners to influence and support tactical and strategic business decisions that lead to business improvements and cost reductions.
• Understand the details of the cost structure to make thoughtful judgement calls in ambiguous environments where data may be difficult to procure.
• Own the Financial and operational planning processes to produce a challenging/stretch/bold yet solid operational plan.
• Proactively support knowledge-sharing within the team and across your division, while looking to standardize processes across EU teams.
• Work independently: proactively partners with your manager to prioritize and focus on high-impact activities and to deprioritize those which are unlikely to drive material improvement.

Learning Opportunities:
• Autonomy to innovate and deliver new approaches that impact the bottom and the top line
• Grow and collaborate in a fast-pace environment where every day is day one
• Being surrounded by inspiring and diverse individuals
• Learn from people and cooperate with a wide variety of professional backgrounds
• Ability to develop new skills and opportunities through lateral, geographical or functional moves

This role is supporting our Customer Fulfillment Centre in Daventry, but can be done virtually from another Amazon location with occasional visits to the Daventry site.

Basic Qualifications:
• Degree and relevant professional experience
• An eye for detail and a passion for data with the ability to accurately summarize the relevant details
• A self-starter with the ability to prioritize
• Understand, own and explain key drivers behind the story
• Strong problem solving and troubleshooting skills and an ability to provide creative simple solutions to complex problems
• Prioritize and work towards multiple deadlines
• Ability to effectively communicate in English
• Intermediate to advanced proficiency in Microsoft Excel
• MS Office

Preferred Qualifications:
• SQL or any large-scale data mining and reporting tools (or willingness to learn)
