My client is looking of a Fixed Asset Project Manager for an initial 12 month contract with the potential to extend. This role is inside of IR35.

The role is to support the Business Process (Tower) Lead for our global Finance and Procurement transformation programme. It will manage the delivery plans of a multidisciplinary core team (process, data, org design, systems, change and communications) which is implementing a simplified and standardised landscape across a Group Finance function.

The role is important because the programme replaces a large part of our old Finance systems across the BT Group. This transformation includes the implementation of an SAP/Hana platform, including the UK Asset subledgers covering approximately 12 million Assets.

The scope of the role is to manage all of the Asset delivery dimensions, within the larger Record to Report tower, working to plan and coordinating delivery of new process and system changes into the BT business - including plans, progress meetings, stand-ups, logs, RAID, forecasts, reporting, resources and measures/KPIs.

You will support an experienced Tower Lead and develop a partnership with people in the programme team including third parties and the wider BT business to ensure delivery is the priority.

*Organise functional leads to resolve problems and issues.
*Run project stand-ups, weekly reports, and reviews.
