A globally recognised retailer based in central London is seeking a commercial finance manager to join and an exciting time of transformation. This role is to take ownership of the profitability of current stores and driving growth through new store openings and stock/product allocation.
The commercial finance manager will be responsible for providing proactive financial support and leadership to the property and merchandising divisions. You will also be partnering closely with the sales and marketing teams and will provide financial evaluation to guide the decision on all forward looking opportunities. This role is based in London but due to the nature of the retailer you may be asked to visit different site to be able to business partner on site/in store stakeholders.
