Financial Analyst

Finance London, England


Position at GroupM

About the Role:

Reporting directly in to our Financial Controller, our Financial Analyst is responsible for assisting across multiple aspects of reporting, analysis, commercial and transactional finance for Xaxis UK and the wider business on projects and day to day tasks. This holistic approach to finance makes our finance professionals some of the most robust in the industry.

You will be taking full responsibility for monthly P&L and Balance Sheet reporting, assisting in stat accounts and budgeting and forecasting with our FC. From an analysis perspective, you will be analysing ledger accounts, client profitability and gross margins- so a keen interest in analysis is a must!

About You:

You have a passion for understanding the business behind the numbers- none of our finance staff “just crunch numbers”. You will be a finance champion for Xaxis UK, a direct point of contact for queries and commentary by the wider business on all things finance.

As our finance professionals wear many hats you are the type of person who can build relationships quickly and confidently. Media is a fast paced environment with many changing and evolving parts so you are constantly innovating and improving to ensure you, and in turn we, are ahead of the curve with the best process.

About the team:

You will be working with a close knit team that really collaborate and depend on each other. Reporting directly in to the FC you will also work with other commercial and finance teams in and out of the building, from our agency, other agencies in the GroupM family and the wider WPP network.   

Xaxis is an extremely analytical business with a creative flair and this can be seen every day in our office with industry leading guest speakers, inclusion and diversity events managed organically by our teams and many more initiative and events throughout the year that boasts amazing summer and Christmas parties!
