What is your current role and what are your responsibilities?
I am currently working as a Senior Transformation Consultant within Finance and Accounting for a large, global organization. I am partnering with the client’s IT department to work to resolve issues and mitigate risks for a large process automation project. I evaluate and make recommendations on how to manage the project to ensure workflow is maximized through their system, and to ensure efficiencies are gained and project milestones are met throughout the Accounting and Systems areas. This engagement has many complexities due to it’s the various areas of impact within a large, fast-paced, global shared services environment.
What is the best part of your position?
I enjoy partnering with senior level professionals and directors, and working cross-functionally within a global organization. I also really enjoy being able to conduct in-depth research and liaise with the IT team to resolve accounting and finance system issues. I work directly with IT to resolve fallout issues that occur when information is moving from one system to another and to determine why accounting and finance information is not flowing correctly into the ERP system. I enjoy working on the ERP implementations, updates and conversions, seeing how a system is working, and creating processes that have a direct impact on the firm’s bottom line.
