Financial Planning & Analysis Manager

Job Title: Financial Planning & Analysis Manager

Location: Lagos

About the Role

  • This role is critical as we expand to new countries and scales at an unprecedented rate. A finance person understands that credibility and trust are built on consistent accuracy.
  • They don’t regard a number as “just a number” but instead ensure they understand what it means so that they can help us profitably grow. While mistakes are inevitable, they are personally bothered by any mistake and so strive hard to minimize them.
  • The FP&A Manager should love building Excel models that are efficient and well-designed and dream of SUMIF formulas in their sleep. In addition to building budgets for the various programs, the manager will also help identify and implement cost saving initiatives.
  • As a small finance team who will be rapidly growing, the candidate should be comfortable transforming ambiguity into solid planning models and actionable insights.

What You Will Do

  • Prepare long term planning, annual budgets & forecasts
  • Provide reporting on progress on commitments to our board and investors
  • Create & improve reporting, models & templates for both financials and KPIs
  • Conduct ad hoc analysis to identify trends, drive key insights and decision making
  • Prepare presentations & narrative detailing the story behind the numbers
  • Help stakeholders throughout the company to understand the budget and help drive cost savings
  • Manage a team of financial analysis
  • Review existing processes to recommend improvements.

What You Should Have

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Finance, Accounting or related area; MBA is a plus
  • Minimum seven years of experience in FP&A or related roles
  • Self-starter who is highly driven & reliably follows through
  • Attentive to details and one who uses data to find trends
  • Advanced proficiency with MS Excel; you are fast and efficient working in Excel and know there is always more to learn
  • Bonus points: experience with large datasets, VBA, Power Query, Power Pivot or Power BI
  • Solid understanding of the interplay between the three financial statements
  • Experience developing financial reports and metrics
  • Articulate communicator who can explain complex ideas simply and influence others
  • Effective interpersonal skills.

You’re also:

  • A detailed doer – You have a track record of getting things done. You’re organized and responsive. You take ownership of every idea you touch and execute it to a fine level of detail, setting targets, engaging others, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. You can multi-task dozens of such projects at once and never lose sight of the details. Likely, you have some experience in a start-up or other rapid-growth company.
  • A creative problem-solver – Growing any business from scratch comes with massive and constant challenges. On top of that, NewGlobe works in often fragile, sometimes volatile low-resource communities and with complex government systems. You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand.
  • A relentless advocate –The children we serve and teachers we empower never leave your mind. You know them, get them, have shared a meal with them (or would be happy to in the future). You would never shrink back from shaking a parent’s hand or picking up a crying child, no matter what the person was wearing or looked like.  Every decision you make considers their benefit, experience, and value.
  • A malleable learner –You believe you can always do better. You welcome constructive criticism and provide it freely to others.  You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you’ve missed things or failed today.
  • A data-driven decision-maker – When making decisions, you don’t rely on your intuition alone. You collect data, you analyze it and make decisions with clear justifications.
  • A curious investigator – You ask why a lot. You don’t just take what you see and accept it. You wonder why it is that way, and are aware that the world we see is created by human choices and actions – and it could be different. You wonder, and see the world as wonderful even when you want to change a part of it that is unjust.
