Senior Functional Consultant (Finance, Accounting, Sub-ledger, CFO, Regulatory Reporting)

If you have a partner or young family that would limit you from being away from home on a weekly basis then stop reading this now. If however, you are someone who is a strong performing, client-facing Senior Functional Consultant who possesses the thirst to further their career and actually revels in the opportunity to work on high-profile, incredibly interesting European and possibly globally wide projects, then read on as I want to speak to you!

My client has a stellar reputation, providing predominantly financial software solutions that have been cited as “visionary” by Garter. They have a non-corporate environment – constantly providing challenges and opportunities to progress their employees and heighten their exposure and technical ability. Yes as I have already mentioned, this role does involve travel, you are either going to be someone that shies away from this type of commitment or grabs it with both hands with enthusiasm and determination – if you are the later then you will be rewarded generously (much higher than market rate- they want to attract and keep the best!).

I’m on the hunt for enthusiastic, highly- intelligent consultants to come onboard who are going to represent the brand name of my client and passionately enjoy working on an excellent range of solutions they implement. You will ideally be coming from a strong educational background; having achieved a 2:1 or 1:1 from a reputable university, probably having studied a Computer Science, Economics, Accounting or Mathematical discipline, and ideally possess an accounting qualification. Further skills you will also possess include:

  • Leadership experience of working in Finance within Financial Services in a line – Product Control, Stat & Reg Reporting)
  • Demonstrable experience in enterprise wide projects – engaging with senior level executives (CFOs, Global Treasurers etc)
  • Experience working with data-driven projects is key – as is implantation of solutions within component architectures Data warehouses, data-marts, accounting engines and sub-ledgers

My client implements their widely recognised solutions into FTSE100 /500 firms across multiple industry sectors including: Financial Services, Digital Media and telecommunications. Within the Senior Functional Consultant position you will hold the following responsibilities:

  • Performing Accounting related Business Analysis alongside client analysts for equities, bonds, derivatives, loans and/or retail or insurance products, media contracts
  • Create / review functional specifications for financial services or media
  • Facilitate and support / perform system test
  • Contribute to Finance and Business end user Acceptance Test plan and success criteria

Unlike other Software Vendors the team sizes for Projects is typically around 6, meaning you are working in a close-knit team, being afforded much more responsibility and gaining much stronger exposure.
