Finance Business Partner – Commercial and Operations


Be the driving force behind our marketing mix decisions

  • Keep us competitive and profitable
  • Impact on our sustainable growth
  • Be part of a growing, global team delivering best-practice solutions 

We’re incredibly proud to be the nation’s favourite coffee shop brand* Now, as we’re expanding into new countries across the globe, we have even greater ambitions. We want to inspire the World to love great coffee! Showcasing our coffee credentials and putting our people at the front and centre of our business. 

Who we are looking for

You’re a business-savvy, financial guru who completely gets marketing and what it’s all about. Undoubtedly, your commercial prowess is backed by an ACCA/CIMA/MBA qualification and you’re used to using these skills to influence your peers and shape decisions. A shrewd negotiator, who also has a talent for resolving conflict, you’re also well-equipped to design and implement process and governance to ensure we’re working to the highest standards. Coming, as you do, with significant financial business partnering experience in a similarly sized, multi-site organisation such as ours, you’ll be happy to shoulder ad-hoc, high-profile, projects as needed. 

A bit about the role

There is a lot that goes on behind-the-scenes when we’re considering how to position our market offer. And that largely comes down to price, promotion, place and product. You’ll work with the marketing, commercial and operations teams to come up with the analytics and insight around these component parts to help shape our broader commercial strategy. Examining margin performance across segments and categories, working through OPEX control and marketing spend and signing off on the 4P business case will all fall to you. You’ll also be expected to support the Head of Commercial and Operations Finance as required. 

So bring us your unique blend, together with ambition and experience and in return we’ll give you a competitive salary, a very achievable yearly bonus, plenty of benefits and more coffee than you could dream of to enjoy in a supportive environment.
