This role will be instrumental in the continual effective running of the core finance system. You will be responsible for reporting on, and managing projects to streamline finance processes, both within the team and the wider organisation

The role :

  • Work through systems integration, proving guidance and support during UAT, migration and post implementation activities

  • Extremely proficient in excel and report writing
  • Previously worked through a system integration or system implementation
  • Ideally to have working knowledge of Open Accounts, although this isn't an essential requirement

This role is to initially be a 12 month contract, but there is potentially an opportunity for a permanent post, once the 12 months has expired. This is dependent upon the needs within the business to retain this skillset, which cannot be clarified at this stage, hence why they are recruiting for a 12 month duration at this stage.

Only candidates that have a background of working through system changes, enhancements, integration or implementation will be considered for this role.
