Finance Technology Project Manager
(Full-time/part-time, 32-38 hours a week)
Action is growing – and that means a great deal of store management to make sure we stay in control of the financials, too. As a Finance Technology Project Manager based in Zwaagdijk-Oost, you will put your project management experience and technical knowledge to good use to bring our finance projects to fruition. You will do so using technology solutions tailored to the business' needs and improvement processes to make further efficiency gains in our processes. This will result in a financial organisation that's ready for the challenges of tomorrow, and that will be partly down to you.
Your daily tasks
You will lead the way in Technology projects for Finance – from investment proposals to successful implementations. These projects focus on improving existing financial processes and solutions, while also looking at how processes can be adapted to comply with laws and regulations and how new features and innovations can be introduced. Action currently has several projects in these areas in the pipeline. You will ensure that the technology needed within the projects is achieved in line with the business' requirements. In doing so, you will manage a functional team of Action technology experts and external technology partners. You will also maintain an overview of conditions in the areas of financing, procurement, solution designs, test plans and national laws and regulations, with a large number of projects focused on Action's international expansion.
Your role will largely be focused on bringing projects to a successful conclusion. This starts with clarifying the frameworks and requirements, working together with the technology and business owners as a strong sparring partner. You will maintain a professional network for business processes and technological solutions and make active use of your network to increase and share your knowledge. You will achieve the desired results by ensuring proper preparation of business transformation programmes, clearly defining projects and actively monitoring resources and budgets.
With around 80 colleagues at our international headquarters and around 300 colleagues based elsewhere, our Technology team takes a pragmatic, rapid and solution-oriented approach to delivering IT solutions in order to provide robust, standardised support for Action's growth in all countries. And it is our desire to make an impact quickly and be able to support the organisation in its growth that motivates us. Where possible, we are increasingly working according to the agile and scrum methods. We are smart followers, embracing proven innovative technologies if they help achieve the goal. As an example, we developed a complete click-and-collect system in just five weeks during the pandemic. Together, the Business Technology teams harbour plenty of experience in our unique Action environment.
Curious about your new colleagues? Nannet, Richard and Duncan look forward to working with you!
