Job Description

Well regarded ASX listed financing company on the lookout for an experienced Systems Accountant to join the business on a project basis to assist with a GL upgrade.

Reporting into the CFO and Finance Manager, you will be responsible for working with the systems vendor to agree a detailed project plan for the upgrade, including the replication of the functionality in the current GL and the decommissioning of that at the end of the process. You will document a detailed cutover plan for the actual "go live" date and agree with users across the business.

In addition you will ensure all requirements are documented and agreed with the vendor which will involve understanding the current processes and procedures. You will review the way the finance team uses the GL and formalise a medium/long term finance software strategy.

As part of the process of documenting the requirements, you will be required to document all process improvement opportunities and report them to the Finance Manager/CFO.

Finally you will verify data integrity of the cutover to the upgraded GL and perform other testing as required to ensure the veracity of the upgrade. 

To be considered for this role you will have previous experience working on multiple ERP GL upgrades/implementations. Previous experience working with Sun Systems and being involved in an upgrade or implementation with Sun Systems will be a major advantage (but not a necessity). You will be CA/CPA qualified and have strong background in accounting processes and procedures. You will have a strong communicator and will be required to partner with key stakeholders across the business and externally.
