Job Details

Are you looking for a role where you can deliver insight and develop as part of a great team? Come and join us as a Senior Analyst in the EDF Customers Financial Reporting team.

The Company

It’s a very exciting time to join one of the nation’s leading energy suppliers, in an Industry that is undergoing change due to the Energy crisis: you will get to see the impacts this has on consumers, businesses and energy suppliers – and how energy suppliers are working alongside the government to adapt in these challenging times for our customers.

The Customers business supplies gas and electricity to residential and business customers across the UK and provides wholesale market optimisation of EDF Energy’s generation and customer assets.

The UK market for gas and electricity is widely considered to be the most competitive of EU energy markets. It is also a market subject to intense political, regulatory and media scrutiny and attention.

The Team

The role sits in the Financial Control & Risk function in Customers Finance which delivers financial performance reporting, forecasts cash, maintains balance sheet financial controls, performs credit risk assessments and mitigate and responds to fraud.  The Customers Reporting team are a small collaborative team of 5 working together (often remotely) to produce both internal and external financial planning & reporting.  We work alongside the business partnering teams to gain understanding - including the Gross Margin team, Wholesale Market Optimisation team and the Corporate UK Reporting team. 

The role puts you at the heart of the Business Unit’s Finance function, providing you with a bird’s eye view of financial performance in each area of the business.  Your contributions in providing reliable and consistent numbers and guiding the finance function through its forecasting will be highly valued.

We seek a diverse blended team of professionals from different backgrounds who can complement and support each other.  As such we will rotate activities around the team to build resilience and keep the job interesting for you.

The Opportunity

We have a requirement for a Finance Senior Analyst who will cover various tasks across reporting, forecasting, consolidation, and balance sheet control. The tasks performed by the team include:

  • Producing IFRS financial reporting packs covering monthly performance, forecasts and budgets.  Use business awareness to provide insight, sense check and interpret the data, providing commentary supported by analysis (from the business teams)
  • Setting the Month End and Forecast timetable for Customers finance, to ensure we deliver on time and to the quality required. Planning activities in a joined-up way by being aware of dependencies between teams and systems. Adapting timelines quickly when required.
  • Finding opportunities to improve efficiency, working alongside IT to customise reports or automate processes. Potentially offshoring manual activities. 
  • Production of our regular external reporting to Ofgem which includes the quarterly stress testing forecast submissions
  • Co-ordination of the annual Audit
  • Reconciliations of the cash received and paid out to customers in relation to the Government support schemes

What we’re looking for…

You will be analytical with the ability to assimilate information quickly and interpret the “so what”.  Sometimes we don’t have all the data or imperfect systems, so you will be pragmatic, resilient, curious, and open to a bit of challenge.  You will be able to work both independently and part of a collaborative team.

We’re looking for someone who has the following attributes:

  • Financial planning and IFRS group reporting experience
  • A strong understanding of accounting principles and financial accounts
  • Strong organisational and prioritisation skills
  • Diligence, enthusiasm and resilience to work through issues
  • Ability to work on own initiative, and collaboratively to identify problems and solve them
  • Confidence to work with imperfect systems and data, able to pick up new systems quickly
  • Ability to establish and maintain effective stakeholder relationships
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Knowledge of the UK energy market and a commercial understanding of external factors would be desirable, as well as experience of a highly seasonal, mass market business
  • Fully qualified (ACA/CIMA/ACCA) or extensive relevant experience

If you think you have most of what we are looking for but not everything, please go ahead and hit apply. We’d still love to hear from you.

Pay, benefits and culture...

In addition to a competitive salary we offer a market-leading company pension scheme, paid holidays with ability to buy additional holiday and a range of flexible benefits, such as: a company incentive bonus plan, health cover, cycle to work scheme, electric vehicle scheme, gym membership, discounts and employee pricing.  

Whilst your base office will be in one of our offices in the south of the UK (Croydon, Exeter, Hove), we’ll support you to work flexibly from home (providing a suite of IT equipment), whilst coming together on site to offer face to face support and collaboration. 

At EDF, everyone’s welcome. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse environment where everyone has a voice and where you feel confident being yourself.  We’re committed to equality, diversity, inclusion.  We’d like our future workforce to have an equal gender balance, represent a broad mix of people from minority ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+, those with a disability and supporting social mobility.  

We’re an equal opportunity and disability confident employer. If you feel comfortable sharing with us that you have a disability, and you meet the minimum criteria for the role, we will guarantee you an interview.

We’ll value the difference you bring and give you opportunities to thrive and succeed and to feel you belong.
