My client, a global leading investment bank are looking to recruit a Fusion Tax consultant on a 12 month rolling contract, initially working from home.
Role Title: Fusion Procurement - Production Tax SME
The Fusion Procurement BAU team was established by Group Procurement shortly after the initial UK roll out of the Oracle Fusion platform. Recognising the enormous scale of change that the move to Fusion drives, and which does not end with the implementation of the system in each country. The team's mandate is to provide direct support and subject matter expertise (SME) to all Procurement Operations' teams running operational procurement and expenses processes on Fusion. To achieve this requires individuals within the team to hold not only strong Fusion process and system understanding, but also deep functional operational and control knowledge and to be able to combine these together to deliver for the benefit and progress of operations.
A key objective from day 1 has been to drive the operational teams to a stable position both in terms of the processes they operate and the production platform itself, for existing 'BAU' countries and new countries as they come out of the implementation phase. This also requires supporting operations through an almost constant delivery of 'small' BAU change (again, process and system). Stability has now been achieved but needs to be maintained as the remaining countries deploy on to Fusion throughout 2021 and the operational footprint on Fusion becomes truly global.
In 2021 the focus of the Fusion Procurement BAU team moves to optimising the operational use of the platform. This will be achieved through a variety of levers including process efficiencies both standalone and those requiring system changes, increased leverage of existing Fusion product capabilities which have not yet implemented, and understanding and then adopting the new opportunities which true automation (including potentially AI) will offer.
Role Key Accountabilities
The Production Tax SME role will be key to the team achieving their objective of delivering Fusion process and system changes/improvements, which will in turn enable operations to achieve operational streamlining and efficiencies. Tax processes and system design has been identified as one of the priority areas which requires a detailed review and remediation across countries.
