Due to this exciting new development, the CFO is looking for more finance resource within their team to support with the transition.

They therefore require a Systems Accountant to join their finance team to support with multiple Systems/process improvement projects and acquisition integration.

As the Systems Accountant you will be responsible for the following initially, however the role will substantially grow over the next 12 months.

-Support the CFO with project managing a Microsoft Dynamics 365 systems upgrade
