Nordic Finance Manager - Business Planning and Development

Bain & Company Nordic, Inc. Copenhagen

Lifting the Nordic business to new levels

Are you passionate about business development, always on the lookout for doing things smarter and better? Do you have a strong analytical mindset, superior excel skills and an interest in understanding, utilizing and developing systems to their full capacity? Are you intrigued by leaving your foot-print on the annual and long term business planning and do you naturally put on the commercial lens when looking at numbers? Do you strive in a team where “Making Others Shine” is more than a catchy phrase? Then you may be just the right match for our open position in our Nordic Finance and Business Planning unit.

About the role

Bain & Company is looking for a Nordic Finance Manager to join the Copenhagen team, reporting to our Senior Director, Business Planning and Strategy.
This role will suit an analytically strong profile who also has great interpersonal skills as the stakeholders are broadly distributed throughout the organisation.

The job is centred around 3 core elements: Planning, Development & Optimization.

  • Planning is both long term planning and short term outlook, working with the leadership team to align strategy and the road ahead as well as working with many entities to calibrate input across various business dimensions.
  • Development relates to building tools or efficiently supplying and modelling data from existing systems in order to provide better business insight and enable business optimization. We are in a post-merger phase where the future tools and processes are being defined to match business needs and fit into the overall global system.
  • Optimization is mainly related to the core business, interacting with the Partners, but could also be back-bone optimization initiatives.

The right candidate strives in a fast-paced organisation where expectations are high and being challenged is the daily standard. The ideal candidate enjoys daily interactions, with the ability to communicate professionally and effectively with a diverse set of stakeholders. Equally important is the contribution to maintain a forthcoming team spirit.

    • Driving monthly high level and in depth analysis on practice and project performance
    • Investigating and resolving data issues
  • System specialist - Building Super-user capabilities within planning systems and tools
  • Ad hoc analysis for Finance, HR and Office head

About you:
