Job Description

Are you a Microsoft Dynamics expert? Looking for a role where you can use your niche expertise to play a key role in a sector-leading organisation? Want to join an organisation with ambitious growth plans, that in turn offers unlimited career development potential?

My client is a large, complex organisation that has an impressive history of being the benchmark of success in its sector. Their Finance department is known for hiring ambitious and driven individuals, and the Finance Systems team is fundamental to ensuring success in the department and the organisation as a whole.

Reporting to the Head of Finance Systems, the key responsibilities of the role are:
*Update and maintain logs of existing issues to create accurate documentation and processing mapping for future reference
*Identify opportunities to improve systems processes and work proactively and reactively to find and implement solutions
*Liaise with key stakeholders around the organisation, encouraging interaction between users and managers to highlight areas for improvement within the systems
*Play a key role in the implementation of a new ERP system
*Oversee a small team of systems support officers, managing their day to day workload, conducting 1-to-1s and appraisals, assessing KPIs, and covering workload where needed with a proactive hands-on approach
*Escalate complicated user issues, covering all applications used by the Finance department
*Support system users through any periods of change

This role is an excellent opportunity to play an integral part in an ERP implementation/upgrade project, and as such, candidates who have experience doing this in large, multi-site organisations would be strongly encouraged to apply.

To be suitable for the role, candidates should have:
*Good knowledge of SQL server. Candidates with experience as a Consultant or working for a Reseller in a systems support function will be highly attractive.
*Expertise in Microsoft Dynamics, ideally Great Plains (though experience in other Dynamics products will also be seen favourably).
*A desire to lead a small team (previous experience is not essential as training can be provided)
*A proactive problem-solving approach and a keen eye for detail.

Applications are now under constant review. If you think this is the next role for you, please apply now!
