    The client

    Working on behalf of one of the world's largest insurance industry clients, we are seeking a skilled Finance and Accounting Systems Analyst.
    The client are sector agnostic, and do not require candidates to possess insurance experience.

    The role

    Reporting into a forward-thinking Financial Controller and CFO, you will be supporting an evaluation of the client's processes in relation to their general ledger.
    The capture and pre-processing of data is currently inefficient. Particularly so in reference to: staff expenses, interfaces with banks, credit cards, payroll and bank transactions.
    You will be tasked with reviewing and documenting the 'as-is' end-to-end processes, coming up with recommendations. And then automating the processes (most likely in VBA/Excel). As the project progresses you will also document any agreed changed for posterity.

    What you need (essential):

    * Good requirements gathering and process mapping experience
    * Experience of working alongside accountants, specifically on accounting and finance systems projects.
    * Good Excel and VBA technical skills
    * Strong verbal and written communication

    What we'd like to see (non-essential):

    * An earlier career background in accounting would be helpful, but is not essential.
    * Some insurance industry exposure (particularly within a Lloyd's Syndicate) would be looked upon favourably.

    Duration: 6 months (good chance of extension)
    Start date: Ideally within 5 weeks
    Rate: Negotiable depending upon experience
