In order to support our ambitious growth in the Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) region, we are seeking a Senior Finance Manager to join our regional office in SSA and enter a newly established business unit with responsibility for the finance function. Initially, the role will be based out of the regional office in Dubai but will move to Lagos, Nigeria after 3-6 months. You will report to the Vice President for SSA.
Financial management, reporting and analyses
In your role, you will be responsible for the financial controlling, reporting, rolling forecast, net working capital (NWC) and daily operations within SSA. You will ensure that all financial functions, systems and routines are implemented for effective financial management. In addition, you will be involved in setting up new joint ventures and developing financial models and business cases to identify new business opportunities and provide inputs to achieve business goals.
Moreover, you will implement, follow up and monitor JV performances. You will be part of the SSA Regional Management team and will work closely with the MEA Regional Finance Director, Consumer International (CIN) and Corporate Finance in the headquarters. This also includes travelling within the Sub Saharan region as and when needed.
Strong finance experience and a global mindset
Your Master’s degree in Finance or similar is backed by 7-10 years’ experience within a multinational FMCG company. This has provided you with a solid business sense and in-depth knowledge of both finances and business economics. You have great IT skills particularly in Excel, PowerPoint and SAP. Your English proficiency leaves absolutely nothing to be desired, and if you can get by in French, it will be an advantage.
To be successful, you must be independent and thrive in a position which calls for your strong financial competencies and your systematic and analytical approach. Moreover, you are result oriented and enjoy taking on challenges that invite you to cooperate in a multicultural global organisation.
