The Team:


Over the last 18 months our Group Finance function in London has evolved rapidly and continues to expand across all of our sub-teams: Tax, Legal, Treasury and Commercial Finance. All of the team provide leadership and advice on strategic projects, playing an instrumental role in the development of Finance as a critical and integrated partner within the business and ensure the long-term success of Farfetch!  

The Role:

Are you a Finance Manager passionate about business partnering, especially within the field of Online Marketing? Do you enjoy putting financial rigor and data behind decision making? This maternity cover position will give you the chance to add value & insight to a high-growth area of the business by putting your own stamp on building short and long-term analysis and forecasting models on an international scale.

  • Act as a Business partner to the online marketing team
  • Develop and take ownership of financial modelling to support and challenge online marketing in key decision making
  • Challenge ROI and work with the team to find optimum levels for efficient use of resources
  • Support commercial initiatives with robust financial analysis
  • Analyse results, identify opportunities and exploit trends
  • Support initiatives and projects as they arise

Who You Are:

  • Qualified accountant
  • Significant experience in financial modelling, LTV, channel performance and cohort analysis is a must
  • Digital marketing analysis experience preferred
  • Experience in the e-Commerce and fashion industries advantageous
  • Strong commercial awareness and business acumen
  • Ability to operate in ambiguous and changing situations
  • High level of judgement, drive and influence
  • Proactive, enthusiastic, ambitious and passionate
  • A strong team player with the ability to interact with those outside of the Finance teams to deliver preferred outcomes
