My client are a global FTSE 100 with headquarters based in Central London. They are embarking on a large scale, global, digital transformation programme across their group finance function and require a talented Architect to lead the European strategy and architecture capability.

The successful candidate will be a seasoned Architect/Programme Manager, well versed in modern, complex, Finance change programmes. You will have experience architecting large scale, complex, multi-system finance application footprints and experience working with the business users to understand/define business scope and operational objectives and how the systems landscape supports these objectives. It's likely the successful candidate will come from an SAP Finance background, yet have a broad appreciation of how modern technologies such as AI, Automation, RPA etc play within an SAP orientated Finance systems estate.
