You’ll work within one of DAZN’s highest-profile and top-performing finance teams, collaborating across multiple functions in the business to support the CFO and other senior stakeholders. You will work under the guidance of the Head of Financial Modelling, but in time the pace of the business will mean you’ll need to develop the ability and business knowledge to work autonomously as required.
 
Your main areas of responsibility will be to work on DAZN’s long-term funding model which we are using to support fundraising. In addition, you will work on developing and supporting strategic initiatives with the aim to ensure correct business outcomes are reached.
 
This role can be based in London.

  • o   DAZN’s long-range plan and funding model
    o   Detailed subscriber forecast models
    o   Financial planning projects such as detailed cash flow/working capital forecasting, Rights portfolio evaluation and preparation of budgeting templates
  • Work collaboratively across multiple functions to forecast potential business cases and long-term strategy
  • Get involved with the ad-hoc strategic projects:
  • o   Incoming and outgoing due diligence activities
    o   New business and new market modelling
    o   Rights and content investment decision support

You’ll be set up for success if you have:

  • Model development experience: Advanced Excel skills and ability to apply modelling best practice principles to new and existing models
  • Financial & tax knowledge: Strong knowledge of financial and tax concepts to allow modelling of a wide range of structures, such as deferred revenue, deferred tax or three-way financial statements.
  • Model review: Ability to review models built by others to identify areas of high risk or error
  • Analytical Mindset: Ability to logically unwind and interpret complex data sets
  • Commercial acumen: Confidence to question and fully understand the business rationale behind new strategies to ensure that model outputs form a coherent business case and are well supported
  • Resilience: Ability to work with uncertainty and remain calm under pressure

Even better if you have:

  • Chartered Accountancy qualification (ACA/CA etc.) or CFA
  • Knowledge and experience in the use of VBA and/or SQL
  • Familiarity and experience with financial due diligence processes
  • Experience of working in a group finance function, particularly in an FP&A context
