Job Description

The Business 

This global financial institution is a large, blue chip organisation with a household name, and has an excellent employer brand. They have a culture of promoting from within, and this opportunity has arisen due to the current incumbent taking on a new position within the organisation.
The Role

This is not your standard Finance Director role. You will be at the forefront of decision making in the business, using advanced analytics to support and drive the direction of the organisation. You will bring an analytical and digital mindset, using data to understand customer decision-making, introduce new products and drive discussions around strategy and transformation. 

This role is purely commercial and does not have oversight of financial control, regulatory reporting, tax or even forecasting. You will manage a large division of the Australian arm of the business and report directly into the Country CFO. 

The first 6-12 months will involve advising the business on how to allocate investment, evaluate the customer touch-point strategy, improve coverage and market share, standardise models across the business, grow a high-performing team and provide decision support around new products.


You may come from a finance, product or operational background. You will:
  • Possess high commercial acumen
  • Enjoy using data analytics to drive decision making
  • Have a proven track record in leading large pieces of change & transformation
  • Enjoy taking risks
  • Be curious and ask questions
  • Come from a very large, complex business
  • Have the ability to question and push back when needed
  • Have a track record of promotion and high performance on your CV
  • Have run a large P&L
Financial services background is ideal but not essential. 
Please note that formal accounting qualifications are not essential for this role, however you will need strong financial acumen.  
In return

This role comes with a very competitive salary attached and an above-market bonus, as well as the option of flexible working arrangements, discounts on products and 1-2 days a week working from home.
The career path for this role if successful is potentially into the CFO role or other Head Of roles.
