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.


It’s an exciting time for Severn Trent Services (STS) the non-regulated arm of Severn Trent Group operating a diverse and commercial portfolio of businesses.  With ambitious growth plans over the next few years, this is a business really going somewhere.


As our dedicated Financial Performance Analyst, you will be reporting into the Senior Finance Business Partner and will be accountable for delivering high quality financial information and commercial insight to support every business decision.  You will play an integral part in driving a strong business partnering culture to ensure that as a business we continue to grow.  This role involves supporting one of our most prestigious contracts, providing water and waste water services to the Ministry of Defence. It comes with full P&L responsibility from revenue through to PBIT, as well as being accountable for ensuring the management accounts are accurate and provide insight to drive operational and financial performance.


Are you either a nearly or fully qualified financial professional, looking to experience working in the commercial enterprise of a FTSE100 business?


Well, if you are, read on.




The nuts and bolts of this role will be for you to report on the financial and operational performance of the business and their regions and help them to drive action to generate year on year incremental value.  We’ll look for you to Identify key risks and opportunities, work with the different delivery teams to ensure performance targets are met and objectives achieved. 


We’d be looking for you to bring your own idea’s so any way you can drive process efficiencies or business rhythm that enables challenge and review of financial and operational performance will be very much welcomed. You’ll be the finance support assisting with the expansion, development and growth within a multi-million pound contract.


This role is not just about the day job though, we’ll look to your experience to help develop a finance team who have the skills, experience and drive to support their operating customers and to enable value-based decision making, produce high quality insight and robust financial planning.  This role sits within the dedicated Severn Trent Services finance team but has the reach into the wider Severn Trent Group finance business.


You will report into Paul Swinburne 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.


To thrive in this role we’ll ideally be looking for you to be financially fully qualified (e.g. CIMA / ACA / ACCA) or on your final exams and also be able to bring business partnering experience at all levels.  If you have experience of working in a multi site organisation, this will be really beneficial.


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.
