You know what it’s like to work with a high profile consumer brand. You’re people-focused and get a kick out of providing solid forecasts and solving accounting queries to create seamless financial insights for people. You love to immerse yourself into detail and enjoy a good audit. You have a can-do approach. You think on your feet. You’re cool with ambiguity and you roll with the punches when things change.
