Our client is a highly acquisitive, UK head-quartered, PE-backed business which is continuing to expand internationally. The nature of acquisitive growth means the business is constantly evolving and the business systems need to keep pace with the demands of the business now and moving forward. As Finance Systems Manager you will be responsible for the management of the Finance Systems team operationalising the new finance system taking advantage of and educating user on the expanded functionality and process improvements. You will thus work closely with the Project Finance team to develop further system improvements, testing changes and communicating across the wider finance community.
