Position Summary...

What you'll do...

Are you interested in helping drive best-in-class performance management and analytics for an important Finance function at the company at the top of the Fortune 500?  Are you looking for a role that will challenge you to develop business acumen, leadership skills, partnership with executive level business process owners and collaborate with Finance teams in all of the company’s segments? Are you looking to help drive impact via high-quality analytics, forecasting and measurement of important strategic initiatives?

The role is responsible for enabling Walmart’s Risk Management function and its leadership team to effectively monitor, analyze, and make data-driven decisions on their business. This is a great opportunity for a professional with a combination of Business/Finance Acumen and Technical Skills to lead all aspects of financial planning and analysis, plus to exercise professional judgment and make recommendations to leaders in the Risk Management/Treasury and Legal spaces. We are looking for an experienced Finance Business Partner who has a proven record of successfully developing financial models, working with large data sets, exercising judgment about expected outcomes, developing annual plans and forecast and communicating “the what,” the “so what?” and the “now what?” in an area of our business with annual spend of $1.5B. A successful candidate will be able to perform detailed analysis of the future cost of claims at maturity, identify opportunities to improve the financial results in our Risk Management function, partner with the business to develop cross-functional mitigation strategies and recommend financial valuation decisions to senior Finance leaders that have a material impact to the company’s operating results. We are looking for a self-starter with a strong drive for making the complex simple, partnering with our business process owners and collaborating with Finance partners across our operating and corporate segments to manage our costs and deliver positive future outcomes.  

You’ll make an impact by:

  • Partnering with senior-level business owners in Risk Management and Legal to help ensure they have the insights necessary to address issues and ensure optimal financial outcomes
  • Perform detailed analysis on a portfolio of self-insured claims, and recommend adjustments to a liability reserve to ensure appropriate financial valuation
  • Partner with Risk Management and Legal leaders to bring attention to cohorts of the loss portfolio where more attention and course corrections or strategic adjustments are needed
  • Identify how changes to our retail business model and the integration of ecommerce technology changes the company’s risk profile and bring attention to new/emerging areas of risk
  • Monitor key “watch list” items that could affect future financial performance if not addressed and mitigated
  • Develop forward-looking long-range financial guidance regarding the future cost and financial impact to the operating segments
  • Develop detailed, cost center-specific budgets
  • Quarterly, reviewing the existing liability reserve and recommending adjustments to the financial statements to ensure the reserve is appropriately valued
  • Partner and collaborate with FP&A teams in Walmart US, Sam’s Club and the Corporate segments to develop and communicate accurate and reliable annual financial plans and monthly forecasts

The successful candidate will have: 

  • BA/BS in Finance, Mathematics/Data Analysis, Actuarial Sciences, Economics, or other technical/quantitative business disciplines
  • At least 5+ years of previous experience as a Financial Analyst, Finance business partner or other similar experience working with and analyzing Financial Data
  • Experience with developing BI solutions leveraging Power BI, PowerPivot or Excel, and/or other technologies
  • A great attitude, and a desire to excel and grow both personally and professionally
  • A deep desire to partner with and learn from business partners, and enable best in class business performance and financial outcomes
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills in a fast-paced/changing environment
  • Excellent communication skills: develop proficiency in a technical/specialized space, but be able to communicate important insights and takeaways to non-technical senior leaders
  • Able to handle multiple stakeholders, workstreams and prioritize as needed

You will sweep us off our feet if…

  • Complex data modeling and/or actuarial analytical experience, where you must apply professional judgment to model outcomes and communicate results to leaders
  • Proven work experience on different data modeling techniques for General Liability and Workers Compensation losses  
  • Good experience working with technically specialized business process owners, but collaborating with non-technical partners in Finance/Controllership
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills across variety of stakeholders, ability to negotiate with and influence others
