Financial ERP Consultant

Due to continued growth we have an exciting and rewarding opportunity for an accountant to join our cloud software consulting practice. It involves working with our clients on the implementation and support of our market leading solutions, SAP Business ByDesign and Oracle NetSuite. It’s unlikely that you’ve done this role before but very possible that you have either been involved in financial systems implementation or played a part in the maintenance and support of those systems. Work is project based so there is a stimulating variety of clients. Often working at clients premises, expect this role to have about 50% travel, mostly local but with some across Europe. Full training will be provided and it’s expected that you will quickly achieve product accreditation. You will initially work closely with one of the business owners who is a Chartered Accountant.

You’re possibly an accountant working in industry who has finance / ERP systems experience but wants a more varied and challenging consultative based role. Similarly, you may also be working in public practice with experience of helping clients implement Xero/Freeagent/Quickbooks.
