At Sainsbury's Argos, the great digital transformation is under way. It's our aim to become the digital market leader in choice, value and convenience, so our Finance teams are more important to us now than ever before. They're the people who provide support across the business and help make the crucial decisions that will allow us to develop into a leading digital retailer.

We have joined Sainsbury's in our journey to become a leading retail organisation and ensuring we place our customers at the heart of everything we do. Together we have a great opportunity to build a brilliant future and do a fantastic job for all our customers.

People are essential to our vision and we make sure that talent gets the stage it deserves. We don't just recruit outstanding people into Sainsbury's; we also ensure they thrive once they get here. Our colleagues get the support to grow into the leaders of the future, with structured development and excellent progression opportunities across the Group.

We currently are looking for experienced Assistant Accountants / Finance Analysts to play leading roles within our business. Your role could either be supporting our commercial business partnering or financial planning teams, where you will play a key role in ensuring objectives are completed and processes are improved whilst working within a fast-paced challenging environment. You will ideally be a Part Qualified Accountant and possess experience working within a commercial / financial accounting role. You will be a self-driven and enthusiastic individual with passion to continue your learning development journey. As well as possessing well rounded systems skills, you will be analytically minded with strong Excel knowledge. We look for confident people who enjoy working with teams and are not afraid in taking new challenges. If this sounds like you, why not apply and our team will be in touch to discuss current vacancies.

It has been just over 2 years since Sainsbury's and Argos came together. What a fantastic journey it's been with over 90% of the population shopping in one of our stores in this time! We have delivered a strong performance, driven by our differentiated strategy, offering customers quality, value and choice across food, general merchandise, clothing & financial services. There has never been a better time to join us.

What we offer:

If being part of a hugely influential Finance team wasn't enough, you'll also receive a host of great benefits. As well as a competitive salary and a huge range of learning and development opportunities, you'll also enjoy a bonus scheme, holiday allowance, pension, a save as you earn scheme and staff discounts at Argos, Sainsbury's and Habitat.

About Us:

Helping customers live well for less has been at the heart of what we do since 1869. Built on a heritage of bright, bold decisions we have a simple vision: to be the most trusted retailer where people love to work and shop. Sainsbury's has always been a pioneering business, opening the first ever self-service checkouts in 1950, and this drive for innovation is no different today. Whilst food remains our heartland, the addition of Argos, Habitat and Bank to our family has transformed what we offer to customers, making living well for less even easier. When you join Sainsbury's, you become part of a team that will always do the right thing for customers, colleagues, communities, suppliers and the environment.
