Rutherford Cross is delighted to be retained once again by Edinburgh Airport to appoint a Finance Business Partner

Edinburgh Airport is Scotland’s busiest and UK’s 6th busiest airport with more than 30 airlines serving more than 200 routes worldwide. The airport reported more than 13.4 million passengers in 2017 as it recorded its busiest year in history. It was the second successive year where the airport added more than 1 million passengers and illustrates the success of its commercial strategy and position as one of the UK’s fastest growing airports.

Edinburgh Airport invested £50 million in 2017 across a variety of projects in the terminal and across the airfield to allow for this continued growth. This included a terminal expansion, pavement and taxiway repairs, and the improvement and expansion of the baggage hall.

We are looking to appoint a Finance Business Partner to look after the Airport’s key revenue streams (approximately £200m in total). This is an analytical role involved in identifying key financial trends, providing insight into commercial opportunities, supporting on capital business cases and helping to shape the future direction of the business through sound and insightful financial analysis. Furthermore, it is an extremely visible role that will require an individual of the highest calibre to interact with the Airport’s Leadership Teams.

As a leading member of the finance team, this is a role requiring a qualified accountant with strong commercial acumen, commitment and drive. The successful candidate will primarily support leading members of the Commercial team and it is therefore essential the candidate can build relationships with and influence key stakeholders.
