A day in the life of...

As the Factory Controller you will act as a trusted Business Partner to the Factory Manager and to the Factory Leadership Team. You will be using your financial insight and leadership competencies to actively develop factory strategy to achieve Halifax Factory’s ambition. You will be responsible for all financial matters and provide fact based decision making on both short term objectives and on long term strategic initiatives. You will provide visibility and forecasts around costs related to the factory processes through the driving of relevant analysis and reporting (monitoring of the forecast and controlling the variances), ensuring compliance to financial legal requirements and NAS. As a Factory Controller, you will be an active member of the Factory Leadership team who takes ownership and responsibility for executing OMP activities to drive cost optimisation, but also key strategic activities, which can fall outside traditional functional boundaries.

What will make you successful

You will be a qualified financial expert with prior experience in a similar role. We would like you to role model key behaviours to influence, inspire and engage others showing a strong aptitude for creative problem solving and suggesting improved ways of working. A ‘can do’ attitude is essential. You’ll be joining the leadership team so the ability to work alongside and communicate effectively with senior leaders is essential.  

 

Finally, you will need the ability to be flexible when prioritising work in an environment that is often ambiguous.

 

This is a great opportunity to work within a talented and dedicated team, in a matrix organisation in what will be a challenging but rewarding role. In return, we will offer you all the support and guidance necessary to succeed.  
 

What you need to know

What can we offer in return? Great benefits you’d expect from a business the size of Nestlé – in the shape of a competitive salary and benefits package, bonus scheme, flexible working scheme, 25 days holiday plus statutory holidays plus flex leave, pension scheme and a real focus on personal development and growth. 


The closing date for this role is Friday 28th January.
