Senior Finance Systems Consultant - Remote/Devon or Somerset - £35-40,000

***Please note that this role will be permanently based from home/remote, but candidates must reside within a commutable distance of Devon***

Not every accounting role entails the endless crunching of numbers...

Trial Balance Consulting serve this employer on an exclusive basis and have worked with this business on numerous occasions over the past 4 years. All of our placed candidates have reported an extremely interesting and unique working environment. Not one has left the company’s employment. This is the perfect opportunity for a finance professional with an excellent knowledge of multiple accounting platforms, with experience gained in either commerce or practice, but most importantly with a strong aptitude for mastering bespoke digital accounting packages. 

About the employer: A little over 4 years old, this software developer is growing very rapidly indeed. They produce a sector specific all-in-one accounting platform that links site level finance transactions to centralised HQ's. The platform is extremely popular within their client market; one of the most future proof sectors in the UK.  They’re a young business, with an extremely energetic tier one management team, all of whom exude a real passion for their product. 

About the role: This is a finance role with a twist. The post holder will work very closely with the company’s clients, typically finance leaders operating at FC, FD, and CFO level. You'll be trained and mentored to become an accomplished guru in the efficient implementation, use and development of our client’s software. Combining your digital systems experience with your pre-existing knowledge of the day-to-day operations of a typical finance function, you’ll be offering tailored support to clients implementing this bespoke ERP. Please note that this is not a call centre environment. The Senior Finance Systems Consultant will build a strong rapport with a portfolio of major clients. You’ll develop a strong understanding of their business model, their accounting operations and will likely be on a first name basis with their system users.    

The successful candidate will manage a team of front line support staff and effectively project manage system implementations, ensuring perfect system architecture and user satisfaction. A key focus of the role will be the effective collation, manipulation and transfer of data from existing platforms (principally utilising the advanced features of MS Excel). 

What we’re looking for: An experienced and enthusiastic digital problem solver with at least 2 years of recently gained experience in data capture, and system implementation project management. You should have a solid understanding of the main accounting principles and an understanding of the finance lifecycle, and will require intermediate/advanced MS Excel skills (particularly lookups, pivot tables and ‘sumifs’).

Where this role is based: This role is permanently based remotely/from home. However, suitable candidates must be based within a commutable distance of the company HQ in Devon to enable ongoing product training and to ensure that you have a close working relationship with your colleagues. The company will provide all of the necessary IT and telephony equipment, broadband, and even home office furniture to ensure that the role can be completed in comfort and with all tools at your disposal.
