Job Description

 

The Team

 

The use of cloud-based technologies continues at pace and we continue to see that most HR transformation programmes demand technology support, and every successful HR technology programme involves some transformational activity

 

At KPMG’s highly successful Management Consultancy practice, we’re working with our clients to help them understand how technology can drive business performance. As such, we’re looking for outstanding consultants to join us, grow with us, and develop our HR Technology advisory capability, driving our strategy through large-scale HR transformation. Part of a developing team that will become our ‘go to’ advisers on HR Technology, you will play a key role in the growing of our propositions to sell and deliver large programmes.

 

At its core, this is a real opportunity to build thought leadership and influence within a fast-growing business area. To join us, therefore, you’ll need to be inquisitive and have a strong, informed point of view. Of course, this will need to be balanced with an unwavering client focus – you’ll have excellent listening skills, and a proven track record of helping clients reach their desired outcomes. We’re looking for self-starters, those with gravitas, credibility, and the natural ability to inspire confidence and empower change. On the technical side, you’ll need a thorough understanding of Workday, together with broader skills such as Oracle.

 

The Role

 

As a Workday Consultant you will work closely with KPMG leadership and clients to define and deliver HR technology strategy by successfully leading the design and configuration of Workday’s HCM solution.

The successful candidate will be expected to: 
• Be a core engagement team member for Workday deployment projects; leading functional work streams for the duration of a project 
• Lead functional design validation sessions 
• Support the client through process design validation, configuration and testing in Workday and enable them to optimise their processes and maximise the benefits of Workday functionality 
• Advise on technical integration of the Workday application with other client and 3rd party applications such as payroll, benefits and finance systems from a functional perspective 
• Manage onshore, offshore and near-shore resources effectively to ensure the most efficient delivery for the client 
• Advise on data migration and data integrity as part of a Workday deployment engagement 
• Take a role in the growth of the team and help us to build a thriving European Workday practice

The Person

 

Our candidates should have strong commercial acumen, hunger to learn and develop and be able to thrive in a really fast paced working environment.
• Workday certification required with one or more Workday functions 
• Project management, Workday HCM system design, build and deployment experience 
• Track record of working with or within the HR function 
• Detailed working knowledge of how HR services are delivered at the process level 
• Three complete, full life cycle Workday implementations preferred 
• Deep functional knowledge of HR plus Compensation or Absence business applications. 
• Extensive experience as a configuration expert and/or project manager of enterprise software deployments (or equivalent)
