Here at GXO, we are looking for a Financial Controller to join our business in a full-time permanent basis. Location can be flexible as you'll be covering sites across the country, so a willingness to travel is essential for this role.

With a turnover of 2bn and the approximate scale of a business unit 250m-400m, you'll report directly into the Chief Financial Officer UK and play a pivotal role in the financial performance of GXO Logistics UK as part of a team of Financial Controllers.

Pay, benefits and more:

We're looking to offer a salary of 80,000 - 100,000 per annum, depending on experience, along with a generous car allowance and bonus scheme. In addition, we offer 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays), as well as the option to buy additional days. You'll also have access to a variety of high street discounts, as well as a cycle to work scheme, a workplace pension, and many other perks.

What you'll do on a typical day:

  • Proactively manage a team of site and regional based accountants to develop the financial management skill base within the Business Unit and achieve the highest standards of financial reporting
  • Support the Business Unit Director, Contract and Site Managers to achieve commercial KPIs and profit targets, including monitoring and driving productivity
  • Implement and manage financial processes and risk management strategies across the Business Unit, as well as develop and communicate BU budgets and forecasts
  • Review and challenge budgets, constantly striving for continuous improvements and challenging commercial decision making where appropriate

What you need to succeed at GXO:

  • Fully qualified Accountant (ACCA, ACA or CIMA)
  • Strong understanding of Transport and Logistics industry, ideally complex, networked solutions (desirable)
  • Understanding of third-party logistics, with excellent operational understanding
  • Ability to lead, engage and develop remote, matrix managed teams
