Gamma is an agile and fast-moving business operating in an environment of rapid technological change. It floated very successfully on AIM in 2014 and provides a full range of telecoms services through both direct and indirect channels to customers in the private and public sectors in the UK. 2018 group turnover was £285 million.
Gamma provides innovative products and services that utilise its fixed line and mobile network infrastructure and re-sells these to the UK business market through its growing number of channel partners.
Gamma has a relatively flat management structure and so you will be working closely with different teams and functions in an environment that welcomes good ideas from all levels and a culture that prioritises people and productivity over process.
In 2019 we were voted one of ‘The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For’ for the sixth time.
We know giving you the right tools and training is essential. Full training will be given on our products as well as ongoing coaching and support.
As a Commercial Risk Analyst you will be working to ensure that Gamma takes appropriate risks in selecting the right opportunities in growing its products, services and customer base.
offer tactical and strategic commercial insight to the business; carry out due diligence and provide feedback on companies’ financial accounts, their background and their owners and directors produce reports for review by business stakeholders at all levels and will present them as required to stakeholders of all levels within the organisation – for example, monitoring reports from credit agencies and making recommendations for appropriate strategies on how best to mitigate potential risks; take a lead role in the management and development of the internal systems and processes within the team and within dynamic project teams on an ad-hoc basis; have direct access to most of the data that you will use in your day to day role, but will also be tasked with gathering further secondary data from other teams in order to help you answer questions.
You will have:
a demonstrable aptitude for pragmatic yet critical commercial thinking, the ability to challenge convention in pursuit of a data-driven empirical result; confidence in yourself and your abilities but are willing to listen to your nagging doubts when things don’t ‘feel’ right; a prior knowledge, either from your studies or from your practical experience, of reading and reporting on credit reports or statutory accounts of UK companies of all sizes; a proven track record of challenging existing processes, ideas and attitudes whilst offering viable alternative solutions to the underlying problem; a critical eye for detail whilst retaining the ability to see the big picture.
We firmly believe that the role provides a breadth of commercial and finance experience and hence we will fully fund relevant commercial or accounting qualifications (for example, CIMA) and provide study leave in preparation for exams.
The role involves working closely with our sales, product and finance functions. You will be based in our Newbury office, but infrequent travel to Gamma’s other offices will be required (and any such additional travel shall be paid for by Gamma).
