About the job

MBDA is a leading defence organisation. We are proud of the role we play in supporting the Armed Forces who protect our nations. We partner with governments to work together towards a common goal, defending our freedom.

Salary: Circa £65,000 depending on experience

What we can offer you:

  • Bonus of up to 21% of base salary (Level 5)
  • Pension of maximum total (employer and employee) contribution of up to 14%
  • Annual salary review
  • 25 days annual leave (plus holiday purchase)
  • Fantastic site facilities, including subsidised meals, free car parking
  • Excellent career progression and development opportunities

Hybrid working pattern: Where possible, we will seek to accommodate a blended approach to on-site and remote working.

The opportunity:

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Manufacturing UK Finance team, supporting the UK Manufacturing function with the upgrade to SAP 4/HANA.

As the SAP Finance Data Lead, you will be supporting the Controlling team for the SAP 4/HANA upgrade.

You will need to have excellent knowledge of all processes involved in the SAP Controlling environment and will be working closely with our consultants to support:

  • System set-up and customisation of rules
  • Master Data
  • Technical and business process knowledge

In the role, you will be part of the European implementation team, working towards the harmonisation of processes where possible and delivering bespoke solutions if UK specific. However, this is not a role where you will be operating as a Developer – instead you are the primary point of contact and key Super User.

Initially, the role will be focused on data cleansing and understanding the current SAP R/3 system in order to transition and implement best practice in SAP 4/HANA.

What we're looking for from you:
  • A strong individual capable of taking ownership of the overall development of the Manufacturing to Finance process flows
  • Ability to influence at all levels, ensuring accurate costing methodologies across multi-national group entities
  • Solid knowledge of SAP Finance module (FICO) and understanding of all modules relevant for Controlling (MM/PS/SD/PM/PP/EWM)
  • An understanding of Finance is a pre-requisite
Our Business:

We respect new perspectives and experiences, and we value our collaborative ways of working. We are committed to growing and supporting diversity in our workforce and ensuring everyone has an equal opportunity to reach their potential.

We recognise that everyone is unique, and we encourage you to speak to us should you require any advice, support or adjustments throughout our recruitment process. We also welcome applicants who are looking for flexible working arrangements.
