    • Own the relationship with modules of the CFOT project, providing support in all Finance-related matters and representing Finance in working with all elements of this programme (CFOT leaders and module workstreams; CFOT Project Management Office);
    • Own multiple additional relationships with Business Owners, Finance Business Partners (FBPs) and the CFO Function leadership team from across our UK and US geographies, as well as colleagues from People & Culture Function and Global IT Function, acting as key enablers to the programme;
    • Understand and challenge business cases, forecasts and other datasets from across a wide range of sources to build and develop a holistic view of plans, whilst building strong rapport, trust and credibility with colleagues and stakeholders;

The Transformation programme's change agenda includes fundamental end to end process redesign, as well as a data, digitisation and automation journey; your support will be vital as the Function navigate its path through significant ongoing portfolio changes and further embedding ways of working in the new Group operating model.
