Want to do the best work of your life? Playing your part in making a big difference to the environment and communities we serve. Our people make Severn Trent a truly exciting and inclusive place to work – a place where you can be yourself and let your skills shine.


Our purpose is taking care of life’s essentials, but we’re also big on making a difference, not just because we should but because we care.


This is where you will come in.  As our finance performance analyst, you will deliver information to help drive improvement in our Capital Delivery business which will enable improved programme performance. You will be charged with providing a robust, insightful, and balanced view across the area’s regulatory, performance and financial objectives.  We’ll be looking for you to be a motivated and engaging individual, ensuring a high-quality monthly reporting rhythm, with the ability to challenge existing practices and identify improvements in both the short and longer term.


Are you a finance professional with strong, proven experience across analytics and management accounting and looking for a new and exciting challenge?


Well, if you are, read on.




In this business-critical role, you will be partnering our business leaders to ensure the delivery of capital programmes through your insightful analysis and challenge. You will be charged with the preparation and presentation of Capital Delivery reporting to business area’s strategic leadership team, Portfolio Boards and other approval bodies, ensuring that all messaging is on point and understood for the growth of the business.


You will be supporting the Capital Delivery MI strategy by leading on projects to drive improvements in the reporting which is provided.  You will lead on month-end reporting for key business areas and providing regular forecasts / budgets, this is where your technical accounting background will come into its own.  You’ll also provide analysis and insight on monthly, annual performance against pre-set targets on such things as outputs and finances, while also driving actions within delivery areas where activity is off track.


With your analytical mind you will be called upon to Identify key risks and opportunities to annual performance commitments and work with our delivery teams to mitigate risks and capitalise on opportunities.  You will also facilitate the production of robust forecasts, budgets and long term business plans.


You will report into the Senior Finance Business Partner.




Of course, it’s important that we attract the right skill sets, and those with the right experience but we value character, positivity, and a caring attitude in equal weight.


We want people who show up and roll their sleeves up. Restless spirits who are ready to be part of something bigger, who care, who really care... because when you really care, you’ll go above and beyond. When you really care you don’t just talk about it, you do more.


We will be looking for you to ideally be fully qualified or part qualified with a good financial track record which you can bring to this complicated but exciting opportunity.


We welcome people from all walks of life and celebrate individuality as we know diverse minds, experiences and backgrounds help us to learn and better serve our communities. We employ thousands of people from across our community who really care about what they do. Because that is how we do what we do.


And when it comes to inclusion, we’re making sure we keep up the progress with our wonderful working groups – LGBTQ+, Women in Operations & STEM, Disability and Ethnicity; who help us do just that.


We do more, because we care.
