Permanent & Full-time INN_1029

innocent started with a simple mission: to make drinks that make it easy to do yourself some good. In 1999 we concocted a few smoothies in our kitchen and tested them on people at a music festival; today we're blending every type of fruit & veg under the sun and selling drinks right across Europe. We have great ambitions: to show the world that you can build a successful business that cares about more than just profit, and to leave things better than we find them. We're proud to call ourselves Europe's favourite little healthy drinks company, but we're still growing. And that means we need more brilliant people who share our ambition, to join in with the next, most exciting, part of our story.

what you'll be doing

Hello,

We are looking for an Innovation and Portfolio Finance Manager to join our finance team for 8 months

We've come a long way from selling smoothies in West London in 1999. Today innocent has a portfolio of 9 different ranges and over 100 different products, and with some big ambitions for the future we need someone who can help drive our juice innovation and portfolio choices in the right direction to get there.

As a key business partner to the European marketing team, this role is a great opportunity to be at the heart of the European business. You will be the finance lead on lots of innovation projects - working alongside marketing, commercial and supply to build the P&L of our innovation pipeline. But innovation is only part of what you will do - you will provide insight and analysis across the whole of the product portfolio to make sure we make the best decisions to drive our overall scale and substance ambitions for both today and the future.

This role blends numerical and analytical skills with communication, questioning and influencing. The variety of skills and stakeholders in this role means it is suitable for candidates with a range of backgrounds (such as commercial, marketing, business ops or finance) looking to stretch themselves in a new direction.

We're always looking for ways to do things better too, so we're after a growth mindset to drive new tools and ways of working to keep us at the top of our game.

you'll have

  • A proven ability to turn data into insights and actions
  • Strategic financial thinking (although not necessarily a finance background), coupled with leadership and communication skills to tell your story in a compelling and clear way
  • The ability to influence others and work collaboratively in project teams with conflicting priorities to find the best overall business outcome
  • A growth mindset - always thinking how we can do what we do better.

you'll get
  • The opportunity to shape how we position and sell our drinks for the future.
  • An influential role at the heart of the European business
  • Exposure to a wide variety of teams and disciplines

As well as the standard stuff you get for turning up for work, we have some great clubs, a free breakfast and as many smoothies as you can shake a stick at.

If you think you have everything we're looking for and more, then we'd love to hear from you. You'll need to get your skates on though, as applications close soon.

This is a 8 months FTC - Start date - Mid-August
