Six different automotive brands. Group Functions. Trade specialists.
At Volkswagen Group UK, we employ over 900 people, supporting a network of more than 600 retailers, and we manage all aspects of vehicle sales for our six brands, from ordering to importing, and advertising to aftersales.
What really sets us apart is how we work – not how many vehicles we sell. Our people have a true passion for what they do, a genuine desire to go further for customers and to give their own careers real momentum at the same time, in an industry that is changing fast to become electrified, digital, and connected. It takes a diverse range of teams to make us successful, but we all share the same aim: to deliver sustainable, profitable growth, drive up market share, improve customer satisfaction, and strive to be the best employer in the automotive sector. Our strategy of "Shaping mobility - for generations to come” is providing answers to the challenges of today and tomorrow with our TOGETHER 2025+ Group strategy. To achieve sustainable success, we need skilled and dedicated employees. We aim to foster their satisfaction and motivation by means of equal opportunities, an attractive and modern working environment, and a forward-looking organisation of work.
Our Finance & Legal team is at the heart of our fast-paced business, working with the brands and functions to ensure they meet their business goals through strong financial planning and management.
We're looking for a Financial Controller to join our busy team on a permanent basis. Reporting into the Group Controller, you'll be responsible for the financials for some of our group functions including IT and Projects. You'll have strategic and innovative mind-set, able to think outside of the box to support an evolving area of the business. You'll be responsible for establishing and owning all budgets and forecasts for your business area, able to provide sound commercial sense to the management teams on all decisions.
You'll have frequent interactions with board members and know how to build solid working relationships with senior stakeholders. Managing relationships, collaborating and influencing your network is essential.
You'll be an established Senior Finance Manager or Financial Controller and be either ACCA, CIMA or ACA qualified. Knowledge of SAP and experience in Project financial control and governance would be beneficial but not essential in this role. You'll ideally have a background in the Automotive or Retail industry and understand a thing or two about fast-paced, time-pressured, commercial industries.
So what can we offer you? As an inclusive employer we know people value different things, so along with a competitive salary, car, fuel card and discretionary bonus, we offer a wide range of flexible benefits to suit you and your lifestyle, including hybrid working.
Think you're up to the challenge? We'd love to hear from you…
