A great opportunity for an finance professional with an interest in systems/business processes or for an experienced systems/implementation accountant or professional looking to join a hands-on and successful team.

Your new role

Your key duties will include identifying business/finance management processes for a range of UK and International clients, looking into existing system pain points and identifying related management software requirements. You will meet with prospects and clients to agree project plans for their finance systems and other key stakeholders internally, along with implementing and configuring the financial software to tailored specifications, managing change and transferring data. You will provide on-going training and support via telephone, email, customer site visits and remote screen sharing. You will be expected to prepare supporting material and training/help manuals based on the finance processes/systems. The above are the main responsibilities of the role; it is likely that other work will be required in supporting the organisation's activities and that the role will develop over time to suit the changing needs of the business.

You will be resilient when under pressure to be able to stick to the project deadlines and manage work-loads effectively. Ideally you will be AAT qualified, ACCA/CIMA/ACA part-qualified or qualified by experience.
