Global Process Owner – R2R
Partner Financial are currently working with a world leader within their field to recruit a Global Process Owner – R2R. The organisation is currently going through a major transformation of their support functions through a combination of systems, processes and people to support their growth ambitions.
The global finance function has been leading the change and reviewing the target operating model to support that growth. After several years working on process and system design, and deploying the solution across several pilot markets, there is a template ready for global implementation.

- Own governance around proposed RTR localisations to the global model agreeing with need for the change and taking proposals through the relevant change boards;
- Work with local & regional CFOs and operational finance leadership in markets to drive process standardisation;
- Exert significant influence on upstream and downstream process design within these markets outside finance (working with local market leadership as appropriate) to drive end to end process effectiveness and efficiency e.g. drive end to end working capital initiatives;
- Work with other process owners within the Global team to prioritise initiatives;
- Own all process documentation (including training materials) relating to the global process;
- Identify and develop deployment accelerators by using lessons learned from previous implementations and other best practices used across Global Operational Finance;
- Drive realisation of market benefits from the programme’s point of view with a focus on reporting and insights;
