Finance Business Partner

Join EDF as a Finance Business Partner and you’ll sit at the heart of all key decisions impacting mass market gross margin, making a significant positive impact on performance and helping the business to deliver its strategic and financial gross margin targets.

We are looking for two Finance Business Partners to join the team.

Pay, benefits and culture...

In addition to a starting salary of £40,000, we offer a market-leading company pension scheme, paid holidays with ability to buy additional holiday and a range of flexible benefits, such as: a company incentive bonus plan, health cover, cycle to work scheme, electric vehicle scheme, gym membership, discounts and employee pricing.  

Whilst your base office will be in Croydon, we’ll support you to work flexibly from home (providing a suite of IT equipment), whilst coming together on site to offer face to face support and collaboration. 

Sam Oldfield, GM Business Partner - Senior Analyst, says “Gross Margin is a great team to work in because it gives you the opportunity to drive real commercial decisions based on the financial information you provide the business. This role gives you a good grounding in the commercial side as well as the financial side of EDF.” 

At EDF, everyone’s welcome. We strive to create an inclusive and diverse environment where everyone has a voice and where you feel confident being yourself.  We’re committed to equality, diversity, inclusion.  We’d like our future workforce to have an equal gender balance, represent a broad mix of people from minority ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+, those with a disability and supporting social mobility.  

We’re an equal opportunity and disability confident employer. If you feel comfortable sharing with us that you have a disability, you meet the minimum criteria for the role, we will guarantee you an interview.

We’ll value the difference you bring and give you opportunities to thrive and succeed and to feel you belong. 

The opportunity…

As Finance Business Partner you will work alongside the Customers business, supporting, challenging and advising on strategic and operational decision-making through insights that drive better business performance.  

You will build strong working relationships with Residential & SME Sales & Margin Management teams to optimise financial performance and find the right balance between being supportive and providing independent challenge. You will be proactive by bringing insights and ideas to influence business performance and decision making.


In partnership with the business, you will develop challenging but achievable budget and forecasts, as well as plans to deliver them.

You will drive Residential & SME month end reporting, meeting deadlines set by stakeholders and comment and input into presentation of monthly results (including variance analysis and business insight).

  • Data analytics within finance systems
