My client seeks a finance professional (PQ, Q or QBE not as important as the right interpersonal attributes) with a desire to consult on ERP systems implementation with a variety of clients. This role is a demanding one, but rewards well, with an attractive bonus and suite of benefits along with strong career progression for an individual who performs well.
You will need to be highly personable, with a solution orientated approach and customer facing mindset. You will need to be comfortable working at a variety of locations in the UK and be able to stay away for 3 nights a week on a regular basis. (My client does try to allocate projects by geography but this is not always possible). Implementations are highly project based and customer acceptance and satisfaction are key measures of your success.
The role will suit either a professional working on ERP systems either in-house or for one of the big solution providers. While my client is looking for a strong skill-set in the finance modules, they do offer the full ERP solution and as a consultant you will be challenged to broaden your knowledge base to be able to problem solve across the range of products offered.
Other individuals have been hired from the profession (as long as the individual is very interested in ERP as a solution) and from management consulting. Someone with commercial business experience in more than one firm would be desirable as this will offer a broader knowledge base.
To express your initial interest, please send your CV with a note illustrating: 1) Why you are looking for an ERP consulting role 2) How you are able to offer the requisite time and travel to the position 3) Your current basic salary & package details.
