Job information

EPM Transformation Lead – (Senior Manager/ Director Level)

Context of the role?

Join a leading global top-tier consulting partner as the Senior Manager/ Director of Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Lead for the German practice. The ideal candidate will have a strong affinity for Oracle EPM/ Hyperion tools or OneStream, with a strong track record of delivering high profile, international projects within this Digital Finance Transformation space. It will suit those with a strong Project/ Programme Management background, with experience leveraging offshore delivery teams for the technical delivery combined with functional design expertise within complex Performance Management client projects.

Due to an increasing project pipeline across Germany and Europe, the Partners of the firm are seeking high achievers with a consulting flair to join on the German office and build out the capability across the DACH.

This role can be based from home with travel to client site. Travel requirements will vary depending on clients but there will be a hybrid model with plenty of home office opportunities. Travel will be mostly for kick off meetings on projects, client engagement activities or internal social meetups with other team members.

Why apply?

This client hires only the most senior profiles for their consulting arm, so no recent graduates, rather hiring industry and consulting experts to deliver in country and on client site. You have an array of offshore and nearshore resources at your disposal, with great access to the Partners and growth pathways into these areas via clear promotion structures.

Having built one of the leading OneStream practices in North America, the firm is now investing heavily in their European operation and looking for those who can grow the practice to similar levels. You also will have the opportunity to work on US projects as well from time to time!

With great partnerships with the likes of Oracle, OneStream, Anaplan and others, you will be able to work on a variety of technologies and get cross trained on these products if coming from the Oracle EPM space for example!
