Line of Service
Job Description & Summary
What value do you bring as a Consultant?
An important part of our business is delivering complex Finance transformation through the latest cloud technology. As a Workday Global Alliance Partner, PwC has a long standing relationship with Workday over the past 10+ years, which spans hundreds of clients across all multiple industries. In recent years PwC has extended their services to provide local Workday Financials capabilities in the Swedish market.
Ideally, you are already certified for Workday Finance, FDM and Engagement Manager. However, if you have experience working with other Finance ERP platforms (SAP, Microsoft, Oracle or NetSuite etc.), this is an excellent opportunity to transfer your skills to work with an exciting new platform. PwC has one of the fastest growing Workday Finance Practices in EMEA and needs thought leaders like yourself to help pave the way for our clients and further develop our Workday Practice.
Your role and the responsibilities you will be entrusted with varies, not only depending on the nature of the projects you may be involved in, but also based on your own experiences and interests. However, as a consultant focusing on Workday Financials you will:
Take part in or lead complex client engagements involving both colleagues from PwC Management Consulting and client resources, taking on the role as project manager, work stream leader or functional lead. Sometimes driving the work from setting the transformation strategies, to supporting the full lifecycle of Workday delivery projects
Build strong client relationships and work together with senior colleagues to drive sales e.g. through identifying add-on sales opportunities on projects and supporting proposal work
Actively contribute to internal development and our ways of working. As a practice, we are always looking for ways to increase the value we bring to our clients and become an even better place to work, and we encourage our team to take initiative in order to succeed
Take the opportunity to involve yourself in PwC Global Workday Community, bringing insights to local team and clients and participating in building competence and methodology
Contribute to building the team spirit, developing others (and yourself) and coaching younger colleagues. We rely on each other to learn and become better professionals, but also to enjoy our working environment and to feel motivated
PwC doesn't simply configure Workday, but treat Workday as a fundamental element of our Finance transformation services. Our team members create and apply Workday and broader solutions that re-imagine the possible, bringing business value and improved user and customer experience.
Greetings from the inside
” We are expanding our Workday Practice with people who are curious and bold, and who are challenged by the idea of solving the most complex problems in close collaboration with colleagues and clients. We are looking forward to welcoming new members to our team!”
– Lars Johansson, Workday Financials lead
What are we looking for in this position?
To succeed in the role we see that you are highly analytical with a strong ability to solve complex problems. You are motivated by facing new challenges and you are comfortable with taking on responsibility. Furthermore, you have a solid track record as a high performer and you have relevant experience from working with Finance functions as a consultant or as part of the Finance function, e.g. Business Controller, Financial Controller or similar. Perhaps you have worked as a functional consultant before stepping into a line role and now want to go back to being a consultant.
You have a genuine interest in Finance transformation and realize that cloud based financial management systems, like Workday and similar, are fundamental elements of Finance transformation services. You have hands-on experience (level depending on seniority) from full lifecycle delivery of Workday Financials or equivalent experience working with similar ERP systems, including e.g. SAP, Microsoft, Oracle or NetSuite.
