Capital expenditure investment, budgeting, forecasting and ultimately driving value will form key components of your role.
You will bring objectivity and strategic acumen to business issues, whilst also being comfortable to dive into the detail when needed. You understand the value of building relationships, whilst also being an influencer, hence challenging the business to ensure the best quality decisions are made.
Information Systems (IS) has significant focus with lots of projects on the go, so this is a true business partner position, where you will have a seat at the table with the IS leadership team.
