The Role:
As our Head of Commercial Finance, you will report directly to our Commercial Director and you will have responsibility for the monitoring and control of all current commercial arrangements with our customers base as well as working with senior stakeholders to identify opportunities to improve profitability on current contracts AND to scope new business opportunities, in terms of profitability, business risk and the long-term implications of new business relationships.
