The Role..


Flutter Entertainment is a FTSE30 global leader in sports betting and gaming with annual revenues of >£4bn. It has recently merged with the Stars Group to become the largest online betting and gaming company globally. Following the merger, the Group is now restructuring into four divisions. UK&I, International, US and Australia.

The newly formed UK&I division contributes roughly half the revenue and profits of the Group bringing together household names Sky Betting and Gaming, Paddy Power and Betfair. The UK&I division is itself the size of a FTSE 50-100 business. We are forming a new finance function to drive financial strategy, planning, performance, commercial insight and reporting for the UK&I division.

Working within the UK&I finance team, the Financial Planning & Analysis function is responsible for providing senior management with forecasts for future periods across a blend of financial and operational metrics. Within this team you would be responsible for analysing the divisions' finances with a critical eye - trying to spot data anomalies, trends, or deviations - and then introducing strategies for improvement and setting challenging targets.

The role has many key stakeholders both within the UK&I division and within the wider group. The relationship with the brand finance teams is absolutely pivotal to this role as budgets are built through a combination of top-down guidance and bottom-up budgeting


What You'll be Doing..


  • Planning, preparing, communicating and adhering to FP&A timetables including budgets, key reforecasts and our monthly rolling reforecasting process.
  • Monitoring, communicating and reporting forecasts and actual variances to management. Presentation skills are key in this area.
  • Managing the preparation of budgets from both top-down guidance and bottom up restraints to arrive at forecasts.
  • Having a solid understanding of and being able to critically challenge historical data when creating a base for future budgets.
  • Continuously liaising with finance teams on both actuals versus existing budgets and setting forecasts for future periods.
  • Supporting the Business Planning team in aligning financial, operational and strategic initiatives across the business.
  • Building strong professional relationships with corporate FP&A teams and supporting in the consolidation of UK&I division budgets into the wider Flutter Entertainment Group.
  • Being responsible for accurate and timely submissions of segment information to group functions. • Continuously challenging and developing the FP&A function to facilitate strategic and financial decision making.
  • This is a new role and function within the organisation and therefore you play a role in defining the scope and team required to deliver on its objectives.


What We're Looking For..


  • Qualified accountant within fast paced online, digital customer focused businesses
  • Extensive experience in stakeholder management
  • Experience in forecasting, budgeting and analysis
  • Builds strong relationships
  • Passionate to develop self and others to support career progression
  • Looks for better ways of doing things, and proactively takes ownership to see things through
  • Financial analysis experience with strong ability to interpret data, highlight opportunities and draw conclusions
  • Flexible and open to change, able to cope with a fast moving and rapidly growing business
