Date: 22-Jul-2019

Location: Bromford Gate, GB

Company: XPO Logistics

Logistics done differently.


Do you have experience working for a 3PL or within a logistics/operational background? Are you all about accuracy in a fast-paced environment? Are you interested in broadening your experience with an exciting customer?

We’re looking for maternity support for our contract with Birds Eye, supporting multiple sites. You’ll lead the finance function for your sites, working closely with the customer and operational teams. We pride ourselves on internal promotions and there will likely be opportunities for permanent roles during the length of the contract.


Pay, benefits and more:


We’re looking to offer a salary of up to £45,000 per annum (pro-rata). In addition, we offer 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays), as well as the option to buy additional days. You’ll 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:


  • Challenge our sites, delving into the detail of the operation and pushing back to management
  • Look at the performance of the site, including customer meetings and reviews
  • Provide variance analysis with adequate commentary to support operational management in the interpretation of results
  • Carry out balance sheet reconciliations along with weekly and monthly customer reporting requirements
  • Provide monthly and weekly KPI reporting on cost vs budget, again, working very closely with the operational teams


What you need to succeed at XPO:


  • Proven experience in a finance management role, within logistics, ideally, open and closed book contracts
  • Exposure to building strong business relationships with both internal and external customers
  • An accountancy qualification, such as CIMA or ACCA


XPO provides cutting-edge supply chain solutions to the world's most successful companies, including Disney, Pepsi, L'Oreal, Toyota and many others. We’re the fastest-growing transportation company on the Fortune 500 list and we’re just getting started.
