Job Description

We are delighted to be working with a leading organisation in their field in recruiting a Finance Project Lead for an initial duration of a 6 months Fixed Term Contract. Following the recent merger of 2 organisations, you will lead on the data migration of 4 systems into 2 over a 6 month period, ensuring that strict timelines are met. You will be responsible for leading on full migration of AP, AR, General ledger and rent accounting data across from legacy systems and will ensure that this is completed in a timely, accurate and professional manner.

The ideal candidate will be a professionally qualified accountant who will understand and appreciate the consequences of all actions in this process for the finance teams in the future.You will be able to demonstrate proven experience of leading on a similar project, ideally in a Housing Association, or at least in a complex and nuanced environment. Any proven track record of delivering a large scale data migration in a Housing Association will be viewed as an advantage.

It is essential that you will be able to demonstrate proven experience of mapping and scoping out of this project from day 1 through to completion of assignment with clear project management methodology. Prince 2 Qualification is desirable but not essential. Strong and clear communication skills are key to engage with both internal and external parties.

This assignment will offer remote working with only minimal visits to the Essex-based offices required over the contract. This is a high profile and fascinating opportunity for a candidate with this specific experience. Potential for an immediate start.
