Commercial Analyst – Northampton

An exciting, business facing opportunity for an enthusiastic and self motivated Part Qualified Accountant to join the head office of a major wholesale and distribution organisation on a 6 month contract basis to assist with excess workload.

As Commercial Analyst, you will be working closely with the Directors of Trading in proactively managing Commercial Gross Margin and liaising with Category Managers to ensure a good understanding of both Margin and Central Income. The ability to identify both future risks and opportunities is key to the role, as is the ability to proactively effectively challenge and influence stakeholders.

Some of the ways in which you will be able to improve cash profit will include:

  • Ensuring the accuracy of margin entries and promotional funding on a weekly basis
  • Advising on terms changes year on year, to maximise benefits to the business
  • Identifying low margin and problem areas
  • Undertaking analysis of major drivers of category growth, such as pricing and promotional activity

Ideally you will be part way towards your CIMA or ACCA qualification, with experience of working in a commercial or analytical role within a corporate head office and keen to gain more exposure to the business end of a fast moving and rapidly changing operation. Advanced Excel will be essential in this role as you will be modelling and developing complex spreadsheets as part of your day to day remit.
