Are you a Qualified Accountant looking for an exciting and challenging role? We have an opportunity for a Finance Business Partner to join our Travis Perkins team based in Northampton (currently working from home) to manage resources, projects and assets for our IT function. 

What you’ll do
As Finance Business Partner you will be working closely with the IT HR team to ensure recruitment and the use of contractors are appropriately challenged and within budget. You’ll also be responsible for owning the IT rate card and working with the Project Management Office on all project and change activity including budgeting for project activity, scrutinising project costs and benefits cases prior to submission, monitoring overall spend and delivery against budget and carrying out PIR’s.
Alongside this you will be responsible for owning the IT capitalisation process and the IT asset register.

We are looking for someone who has the ability to build strong rapport with the team whilst not being afraid to challenge where required! Due to the nature of the role we will also need you to be able to communicate across the business with both finance and non-finance people. Most importantly, you will be ambitious and be keen to learn and develop!

What’s in it for you?

  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Colleague discount across a variety of Group businesses including; 20% off at Wickes and 30% off at Tile Giant, plus special discounts across our Trade Merchanting businesses.
