As our Senior Finance Business Partner, you will be responsible for driving the performance management agenda for one of the markets in our newly established region North West Europe. This region is newly formed as part of an ambitious reorganisation and includes the Nordics, Benelux, and the UK. You will become a trusted sparring partner to the Market Director for the UK market (Britain & Ireland) by supporting and advising on operational and strategic decision-making, in pursuit of optimised performance in the market. For the right candidate, we offer the opportunity to grow within this role and to take on further responsibilities over time over time. You will work out of the VELUX Group headquarter in Hørsholm and report to the Finance Director for the NWE region.

Your primary tasks will be to:

  • Continuously monitor, assess, and drive transparency on financial performance in your market, and providing accurate and timely financial information to support management decision making.
  • Partner with the business to analyse variances, assess performance, manage risks and operational cost, and communicate key metrics and messages across the region and to the Group.
  • Drive the target setting process and strategic annual financial plan for your market.
  • Develop and define KPI reports and metrics, using VELUX’ BI tools and programmes, e.g. SAC and Power BI, and utilising reports delivered by the shared services BI reporting team.
  • Participating in the deployment of Group projects, standardisation and optimisation initiatives and ad hoc analyses across the region.
  • Support with regional tasks across the other markets, and in mentoring and inspiring the junior team members. 
  • You can expect to travel approximately 20 days annually, primarily within the region’s markets.

    Your qualifications

    We picture you as having strong interest and experience within finance and performance management, coupled with an analytical mindset and the ability to build relationships and communicate with various stakeholders across the organisation. You are passionate about making a difference and understand how to drive performance through insight, data-driven analysis, and strong cooperation with the rest of the business. You take the initiative and are comfortable acting independently but within a strong collaborative team environment. 

    Moreover, we expect that you: 

  • Hold a master’s degree in Business Economics, Finance, Accounting, or similar, alongside a commercial mindset.
  • Demonstrate solid experience from a Finance, Business Partnering, Management Consulting, or Strategy function, with a minimum of 6 years of relevant experience.

  • Have knowledge working with financial data, ERPs, and reporting systems (VELUX uses SAP).
  • Have extensive Excel experience and the ability to handle large sets of data.
  • Experience producing dashboards in Power BI or similar is an advantage but not required.
