What’s the role?

At Bloomberg Finance we are committed to providing extraordinary support to our business partners by providing data driven insights on business performance, financial oversight and thought leadership.

This position is ideal for a seasoned Finance professional who excels in big-picture strategic thinking and cross-functional collaboration.

The candidate will have a high degree of exposure to the executive leadership team and the board, and therefore must have strong communication skills and be adept at appropriately challenging a wide range of business leaders within the organization.

The candidate will need to be able to handle detailed, complex concepts and problems that require timely decisions based on sound judgement. This will require a high degree of comfort with ambiguity and uncertainty, coupled with the ability to adapt and guide others through complex situations.

We’ll trust you to:

  • Be able to problem solve with senior leaders to deliver strategic insights and recommendations based on business analyses

  • Collaborate with company and functional leadership to analyze complex business decisions and provide thought leadership through a financial lens

  • Support leadership on ad hoc strategy and financial analyses, such as new initiatives, operational changes, and M&A opportunities

  • Evaluating new methodologies and practices, such as the use of data analytics, alternative forecasting and/or planning cycles to bring new thinking into the organization

  • Performing ad hoc financial analysis to support key business decisions and drive high-impact projects that influence the whole of Bloomberg

  • Identify gaps and propose changes to existing policies, systems, and frameworks. Develop scalable solutions, work to manage risks across the organization, and develop best practices

  • Working closely with our Accounting and FP&A teams to develop an in-depth, comprehensive understanding of the company’s operations to enhance the usability of information that impacts key business areas and evolve our financial forecasting and reporting processes

  • Collaborate with cross-functional stakeholders in business planning, headcount management, and the setting of key organizational performance metrics

You’ll need to have:

  • 7+ years of relevant experience in Finance

  • Bachelor’s degree required

  • Demonstrable experience working with and influencing executive stakeholders

  • Expert modeling skills with exemplary attention to detail and unwavering commitment to accuracy

  • Excellent communication skills and “story telling” ability when presenting data insights, with the ability to distill complex financial information into actionable insights for leadership

  • Experience implementing strategic and large-scale projects in a demanding and fast-paced environment with a high degree of deadline-driven productivity

  • Proven ability to work with different team members to design processes and implement strategic projects that solve business problems

  • Strong sense of ownership and leadership

We’d love to see:

  • CFA is a plus

  • Familiarity with Tableau is a plus

  • A positive, “can-do” attitude

  • Thoughtfulness around knowing your audience and providing various options and sensitivities

  • Ability to be responsive and act with a sense of urgency
