ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS: Candidates should have a solid understanding of Finance / Accounting Systems and Processes, possibly gained from working as an Accountant or Senior Finance Manager / Director.

JOB TYPE: Full-Time, Permanent



Do you currently work as a Head of Finance and IT and are looking for a move into technology management consultancy? Or perhaps you are a Head of IT / IT Director and are looking for a change?

Perhaps you would like more variety in your job and be able to work with lots of different organisations in the sector. Or maybe you have a ‘big 4’ type of consultancy background but are looking to make the move into a sector where you can have a bigger impact.

If you have a solid functional understanding of Finance / Accounting IT Systems,  experience implementing new technology and would like to use your skills to make a difference to charities and non-profit organisations, then we would like to hear from you.

As a Senior Consultant / Finance & Accounting IT Systems Project Manager you will be primarily home-based although you will be expected to travel to meetings in London and visit client offices as required. 

Working as a Senior Consultant / Finance & Accounting IT Systems Project Manager you will be responsible for providing strategic guidance and leadership to not-for-profit organisations. Your day-to-day tasks will involve collaborating with senior managers to develop and execute digital, data, and technology strategies that drive effective organisational change. You will also provide expert advice on trends in digital engagement, agile project delivery, information security, and infrastructure. 

There will be a broad range of engagement types but for this role, and the company is particularly looking for individuals who have a background in finance / accounting solutions, software specification selection, business process improvements and general IT management.

As a Senior Consultant / Finance & Accounting IT Systems Project Manager you will lead consultancy engagements and work with team members to plan and deliver consultancy work to a high standard and within budget.  The role will be interesting and varied and you will have the opportunity to help develop the consultancy by identifying and contributing to marketing initiatives and events as appropriate, plus proactively help to identify and secure new work, from both new and existing clients.



As a Senior Consultant / Finance & Accounting IT Systems Project Manager you will have the following skills, experience and attributes:

  • Knowledge of accounting and financial procedures within organisations and project managing or supporting the implementation of new IT Accounting / Finance systems is essential
  • Strong strategic planning and leadership skills
  • Expertise in technology management, operations and delivery
  • Good general knowledge of process improvement techniques and workshop facilitation
  • Good commercial awareness and a sense of customer focus
  • Understanding of information security and infrastructure
  • Ideally experience in the not-for-profit sector, but not essential
  • Experience in managing risks and providing clear guidance
  • Excellent communication and stakeholder management skills
  • Ability to work independently and remotely
  • A ‘can do’ attitude and an interest in problem-solving
  • Degree in a relevant field (e.g. business, technology or social sciences)
