The Role

With an established and growing team already in place the business that we're representing are in need of a Systems Accountant to develop and grow with the business. Once in role the candidate will be working with the existing team to clean up and extract information from the existing systems with the view of getting the business to a stage where a new ERP system can be implemented.

Specific aspects of the role included:

  • Take a lead on all aspects of data cleansing
  • Make improvements to the existing Access and Excel models that exist
  • Implement system and process improvements to the existing sales system
  • Work alongside the senior management team to implement a new ERP system
  • Make recommendations and advise the SMT through the 'beauty parade process'
  • Liaise closely with the chosen software vendor to ensure a smooth system implementation

The successful interim will have proven Access and advanced Excel skills and will have previously been through a successful ERP system implementation. The ability to 'roll your sleeves up' and lead on the data cleansing / modelling in advance of the system 'go live' date is critical as the existing information is not robust enough in its current form.

The candidate will be available for a May start and will need to commit for the longevity of the project. Good communication skills and the ability to advise the FD and owners of the business on all system issues will be critical for the interim candidate.
