My Role at Premier Foods

Rachel

I am part of the Business Planning team in Finance. We’re responsible for providing forecast information and analysis to senior management as well as external stakeholders and our lending banks.

My role is diverse and every day is different. One day I could be planning our next budget process and making sure everyone involved knows what they need to do and when and the next, I’ll be meeting the project team for a system implementation I’m involved in.

I also get involved in the monthly forecast process led by Sales and Marketing teams.  This enables me to understand the key projects going on in the business and how we work with our teams who develop our brands and have a direct relationship with our customers.  I use the outputs from the forecast to model different scenarios and see a range of outcomes for our 12-18 months sales and profit figures.
