AstraZeneca is a global, innovation-driven biopharmaceutical business that focuses on the discovery, development and commercialization of prescription medicines for some of the world's most serious diseases. But we're more than one of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies. At AstraZeneca, we're proud to have a unique workplace culture that inspires innovation and collaboration.

As part of the ambitious, broad ranging, multi-year transformation programme, called Finance Transformation (FT),

the Performance and Insights team supporting global metrics reporting for Global Finance Operations (GFO) processes are transitioning into Global Business Services (GBS) and the requirements for support to the GFO leadership team are expanding.

GFO is the largest Finance team and is at the heart of the Finance function – providing a far-reaching range of transactional finance activities for all entities, worldwide, enabling our customers to focus on AstraZeneca’s (AZ) priorities. The processes cover record to report, purchase to pay, travel and expenses, contract to cash and data management and we drive AZ’s cash focus through disciplined management of supplier and customer payment terms and practices. GFO provides P2P/T&E process helpdesk services to internal AZ and external end users, including training support to internal AZ users. They operate globally through a combination of in-house and business process outsourcing (BPO) which has been provided in partnership with our service provider Genpact since 2008.

GBS will continue to develop its service offering throughout 2018 and beyond and the scope for the Performance and Insights team is expected to expand as GBS grows.
