About The Role

Commercial Finance Manager - Marketing & Operations

Checkatrade – Where reputation matters

We are looking for ACA/ACCA/CIMA qualified Commercial Finance Managers to join our Commercial Finance function. You will work directly with members of our senior teams to influence decision making and shape the future direction of the business. Our fast-paced, digital business with an abundance of ideas requires a similarly fast paced individual who is adept at using data and analysis to offer timely commercial insight, which both supports and challenges conventional thinking across the organisation.  Checkatrade has significant growth ambitions, and this role will be central to selecting and prioritising those initiatives to deliver on our short and long-term goals. Sound good? If so, we’d love to hear from you!

Location: Based in Portsmouth, Hampshire or London, Kings Cross. Hybrid working applies, ideally 2 days in the Portsmouth office, 3 days working from home.

Where do you fit in?

As a membership organisation with circa 47,000 trade members, our Finance team are pivotal to our success as a growing scale up. Reporting to our Head of Commercial Finance, you will form part of a team of 5 (3 Commercial Finance Managers and 1 Finance Analyst) which has gone from strength to strength. We are looking for an experienced Commercial Finance professional to work closely with marketing and operations teams, but also product, growth and change functions. You will have sound commercial insight that balances short term department results against long term, cross department goals. You’ll be highly visible to your key stakeholders and will undertake a data and insights driven approach to “back up” the recommendations and decisions made. If you are proactive, driven and have experience manipulating data, then this is the role for you!

What’s in it for you?

  • A great place to work – officially (by Great Places to Work in the UK 2021 & 2022). You’ll be part of a business with momentum and work with passionate people.
  •  Be in a role as a Commercial Finance Manager role where 50% of your time is about people and relationships and 50% finance. 
  • An excellent salary and benefits package that includes a bonus, car allowance, private medical and much more.

We are an equal opportunities employer that is committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. 

What do you need to succeed?

  • ACA/ACCA/CIMA qualified Commercial Finance Manager with previous experience in a similar role.  
  • An entrepreneurial mindset and thirst for data.
  • Advanced financial modelling skills and considerable technical experience across Excel and PowerBI or similar. 
  • Excellent people skills – confident and credible with a consultative and collaborative approach that engages teams and leaders alike.
  • Big four experience would be ideal.
