The Role..

 

The merger of Flutter and Stars Groups, creates the largest online gaming company in the world, and a FTSE 40 listed Group.

 

The transaction will add significant breadth and complexity to the remit of the Finance Business Intelligence and Analytics Team, creating an exciting opportunity to join the department to help ensure accurate, complete and consistent reporting of financial metrics throughout the enlarged Group.

 

The role will be required to translate business requirements into technical specifications, so an appreciation of gaming products and financial metrics is vital.   An understanding of financial controls, and the ability to apply this framework to various scenarios is also essential.  The role will ensure that reconciled and validated daily financial reporting figures are produced on a timely basis.  

 

The position must support the entire Finance Function as well as requests from other areas of the wider business, particularly Tax and Regulatory Compliance.  There will be an emphasis on automation and consistency, and the role would be expected to work independently and as part of a group to promote this.          

 

 

What You'll be Doing..

  • Provide a bridge between financial and data teams, translating finance requirements into technical documents.
  • Ownership of data definitions behind financial metrics. 
  • Ensure smooth production of Daily Revenue Files for load into Oracle Financials.
  • Development and maintenance of reports and dashboards.
  • Understanding of ETL and reporting tools and the knowledge around which to use in different scenarios.
  • Liaison and relationship building with Data teams.
  • Promote consistency of definitions and reporting throughout the Flutter Group

What We're Looking For..

  • Strong educational background.
  • An interest in, and understanding of, sports, poker and betting.
  • Basic knowledge of SQL (or other programming languages) and BI tools.
  • An understanding of key financial principles.
  • Working with large amounts of data to produce comprehensive analysis and support recommendations for positive change
  • Advanced Excel Skills
  • Enthusiasm and a willingness to learn combined with a proactive approach to work and a desire to progress.
  • Professional and positive approach, combined with good time management, organisational and multi-tasking skills.
  • Proactivity and innovation – capacity to take the initiative to identify improvements in process and assist management in implementation.
  • Communication skills are important, with the ability to communicate both within the team and to members of the wider business both essential.
  • Flexible, enjoying a frequently changing and fast paced environment.
