In July 2022, Birmingham will host the XXII Commonwealth Games, the largest multi-sport event to be held in England in 10 years. Approximately 6,500 athletes and team officials from 71 nations and territories across the Commonwealth will come together in a 12-day celebration of sport and culture.

A critical element at this early stage is implementing the HR, Finance and Budgeting, Procurement and Contract Management system. As a new Organising Committee, there is relatively little legacy data and no existing processes and workflow, therefore this is as near a green field site implementation as possible and organisation workflows will be designed around core system capability. The HR/Finance Systems Implementation Manager role will take responsibility for project managing the implementation of the Finance, Procurement, Contract Management and HRIS system. The OC will be implementing a cloud based Microsoft Dynamics 365 system.

* Lead the project team for the implementation of the HRIS/Procurement/Finance system (MS Dynamics 365) and be the main point of contact with the system integrator
* Manage the contract with the system integrator through the design and implementation stage
* Design and implement the systems core data structure, chart of accounts, workflows and internal controls
* Work with internal stakeholders on designing and implementing the wider Procurement / Finance / Contract Management / HR processes and procedures, ensuring these are reflected in the system design and implementation and make best use of available system functionality
* Develop and maintain an agreed implementation plan, risks and issues register and provide regular progress reports to senior OC executives and board meetings as required
* Lead the testing of the system, ensuring all issues are resolved with the system integrator
* Take responsibility for training and preparation of guides for end-users of the systems and processes implemented
* Provide super user support during transition to the new system and for the initial operational period.
