This acquisitive growth has led to a rapid build-up of scaled operations across several continents, a portfolio of group businesses and therefore a myriad of legacy platforms. This has arrived at a pace such that it is impossible for the financial control environment and efficiency of finance systems estate to have evolved in alignment.


The road map and TOM for transformation has been somewhat laid out in part, however a significant value add can be achieved through evolving this roadmap further to identify other opportunities that exist within the group finance structure for positive change and migration to more digitally focussed and control centred working practices.

  • An efficient and fit for purpose, cloud hosted, group wide suite of finance applications to deliver effective reporting, consolidation, planning, analysis and insights

  • Cost efficiency and bottom line impact through digitalisation, operational synergy and/or removal of duplication and inefficient process/practice within finance teams across group platforms or at group level

The individual will play multiple roles internally which will require a broad skill set and will ensure an incredibly diverse and challenging backdrop to progress and refine skills as the business moves forward:
  • Mitigating risks and exposures in the current system team and application support, e.g., 'Key Person Risks'
  • Partner with the Group Digital workstream to ensure Finance needs are understood and delivered
  • The scoping, design, build, implementation, testing and management of all phases of Finance projects including the allocation of resources and management of project budget
  • Lead, optimize and successfully contribute to the delivery of future integration of businesses acquired into the Group's financial systems & infrastructure

  • Minimum of ten years' Financial Service/Life Insurance Company experience
  • Demonstrated track record of delivering finance transformation/change and excellent project and stakeholder management skills
  • Expertise in Oracle Fusion General Ledger and Oracle related tools
  • Experience with other finance systems for Treasury and Asset Management is desirable
  • Ability to prepare and present progress updates to Steering Committees and Executive Committees with excellent stakeholder management skills.
  • Qualified ACA, ACCA or CIMA
