Are you looking for a challenge in an exciting industry? How does walking to your office through a shark tunnel sound? How about grabbing a coffee with the Koalas, or hanging out with the likes of Brad Pitt and Taylor Swift whilst on the way to lunch? If it sounds great then we have a fantastic opportunity for a Finance Business Analyst to join our team on a full time basis.

About the Opportunity
Reporting to the ANZ Business Analysis Manager, you will provide support to finance, marketing, operations, GMs and senior management teams by extracting and analysing data in order to allow the business to make decisions based on timely and accurate information.

Key responsibilities:
* Provide advice and guidance to aid in commercial decision making and continually seek to introduce and develop ways of analysing the business (volume, revenue, gross margin and stock) and providing recommendations to drive results.
* Oversee the production of key revenue and volume information which is concise and aggregated with benchmarking including comparison to budget/prior month/forecast.
* Ensure the systems are administered and maintained in a way that achieves the operational and sales needs of the business as well as ensuring that reporting is accurate and categorised correctly.
* Support end user reporting and analysis requirements, from finance, marketing, operations, GMs and senior management teams.
* Assist in point of sale and finance system migration projects.
* Train staff in best practice systems use.
* Ad hoc analysis as required.

About You
This is a high paced and interactive environment therefore to be successful you will need to have excellent time management and multi-tasking skills and thrive on working towards deadlines.

With a hands-on attitude, you enjoy being part of a team and have excellent communication. You will have a great eye for detail and at least 2 years of previous experience in a similar role. Working knowledge of TM1 is preferred but not essential, however you must be very savvy with Excel (complex formulas, pivots, basic VBA). Studying towards recognisable Finance / Accounting qualification would be a plus.

Alongside a fun and collaborative environment, with a competitive salary, you can enjoy our amazing benefits package, including a discretionary company bonus, corporate partnership discounts, and of course, a Merlin Magic Pass, which entitles you and your family and friends free admission to all our attractions worldwide.
