Our client is seeking a proactive and hands-on Finance Systems Manager to lead the charge in overseeing the day-to-day operations of our Dynamics 365 F&O solution.

This pivotal role involves taking full accountability for system maintenance, driving optimisation projects, and collaborating closely with our Finance, Data & Technology teams, alongside support from managed service provider specialists.

  • A deep understanding of finance processes, coupled with expertise in the D365 Data Management Framework, is imperative. Technical acumen is essential for analysing data issues and managing integrations, supported by our Data Team as needed.

  • Minimum 5 years of experience with Dynamics365 Finance & Operations (D365 F&O) in a functional and system capacity.
  • ACA/CIMA/ACCA qualification preferred, with a solid grasp of financial accounting principles, month-end processes, and finance operations.
  • Must be able to adapt D365 processes to align with our clients needs while ensuring compliance with accounting standards and regulations.
  • Previous experience as a lead or manager supporting Dynamics365 F&O, responsible for coordinating issue resolution and driving improvement plans.
  • Ability to advocate for finance system requirements and offer proactive advice on feasible solutions.
  • Proficiency in defining best practices for storing, modeling, and presenting finance data for the Finance team.
  • Strong familiarity with automated reporting tools and D365 reporting capabilities.
  • Demonstrated problem-solving skills, including the ability to anticipate and mitigate potential issues.
  • Detailed functional knowledge of Dynamics365 F&O, including supporting end users and troubleshooting.
  • Experience initiating and managing improvement projects with a proactive, results-oriented mindset.
  • Experience collaborating with external partners.
  • Experience managing enhancements or upgrades, from defining functional specifications to testing and release management.
  • Proficient in managing and maintaining integrations with D365, including expertise in the Data Management Framework.
