Axon Moore are exclusively recruiting into a publicly listed West Yorkshire based manufacturer for a Systems Accountant role that will play a pivotal part in understanding and driving forward the business ERP system. The role will play an integral piece in moving the business forward through turning data into understandable, credible and useful information and reports for use by the Management team.

Whilst the position reports into and works within the finance team, the role itself takes a heavy IT focus but will benefit significantly from a high level of knowledge in accounting. The role will manage the development of the company ERP and accounting systems along with documenting system processes and procedures. There will also be a key support aspect to the role through the provision of training and support to the ERP users to ensure correct use of the system and also provide technical support to the team as and when required. Important elements include working with the IT team to review and maintain systems access controls and security, maintaining segregation of duties in the accounting system and various ad hoc duties where necessary. The role also takes on various development and improvement responsibilities across financial reporting, exception and control reports along with scheduled reports for department heads: it is more than just supplying the information, it’s about helping the managers use the information to benefit the business.

With the above considered, it's clear that a highly skilled, systems focused candidate is required. Degree level academics are desirable, however experience in systems interrogation and database management are essential. Experience in the implementation of a large ERP system such as SAP or Oracle is considered highly important, whilst advanced Excel skills to macro level, VB Scripting, Crystal Report writing and knowledge of SQL are all key experience points required. Character wise the role will benefit from a team player, someone with the enthusiasm to help and support the finance and IT teams through regular contact and a thorough understanding of the subject matter.

The appeal in this role lies in the opportunity to make a key and crucial difference in a forward thinking and developing business. With a good remuneration and benefits package, this position should appeal to any IT focused accountant with a background in the implementation and maintenance of large ERP systems who wants to make a real impact in a new role.
