As a successful and fast-growing transformation consultancy, Veran Performance is looking to bring on board individuals who are passionate about finance transformation and have a proven track record in this domain. As a qualified accountant, with years of operational experience, you will also have implemented SaaS solutions for Finance, preferably Oracle, Workday or SAP.

As a Senior Finance Transformation Consultant, you will be responsible for guiding and supporting clients through the deployment of new technology and the transformation across the organisation that comes from that change.  You will lead workshops, facilitate key decisions, support with vendor selection and guide the client through the implementation and adoption of new technology. You will understand, not only how to get the most from SaaS technology across many Finance areas, but you will understand how to make the transformation successful from a business perspective. You will not be involved in the configuration of this technology, but the handholding of the finance team and wider business in how to get the most from technology and embed it successfully within the organisation.  This role is a blend of stakeholder and project management, solution and process design and change management.

Description of role:

  • Advising clients on Finance service design and changing operating models that result from the deployment of technology and automation.
  • Supporting clients with a case for change, defining where there are opportunities to make changes and how these can be translated into a roadmap and action plan.
  • Defining transformation roadmap and implementation plans.
  • Providing expertise to clients regarding the deployment of finance technology solutions, from both a functional, organisational and change perspective.
  • Supporting clients to design technology and automation solutions that deliver the outcomes required and align to strategic design principles.
  • Leading a functional team to deliver all aspects of transformation.
  • Providing programme management with a weekly status update of activities against the plan.
  • Working with clients to identify and resolve any risks and issues arising from the deployment of technology solutions.
  • Working with technical teams to ensure the technical solution is built as per the design and meets the requirements of the business.
  • Working with the business to define and embed new ways of working.

Role requirements:

  • A 2:1 or above from a globally recognised University or Business School.

  • Exceptional stakeholder management skills.
