Financial Planning Analyst

at Swoon Editions in London

This is no ordinary financial planning role. Analysts at Swoon are at the heart of everything we do.

As the Financial Planning Analyst you will investigate, forecast and track the impact of a myriad of changes. From product changes to supplier renegotiations, you’ll state what they mean for the bottom line and put your weight firmly on one side of the fence. You’ll be involved in a number of different projects, but there are some constants: financial forecasting, calculating deferred revenue, and developing business wide KPIs and targets.  

Combining analytical ability with creativity you’re someone who can draw out insights that really matter from complex data sets, making realistic recommendations that deliver tangible business impacts.  

This isn’t a job for the fainthearted, and being able to maintain a sense of humour under pressure is essential. If you’re up for a challenge and willing to get stuck in, you could make a significant difference to our business at the most exciting point on its journey so far.
