The Business Solutions Team of HFG is active in improving processes, reports (KPIs), information systems and controls. It drives the development, implementation and integration of new solutions for business processes and as such contributes to the strategy of the company. In succession of one of our team members, HFG is in search of a Business Solutions Specialist (BSS), specifically for the disciplines finance and HRM.

The BSS is balancing between business responsibility and consultancy, bridging business processes and software applications, assisting the business organization with support and training, and translating risks, controls and opportunities into improvements.

The BSS is specifically experienced in the disciplines finance and HRM. For both disciplines, HFG is in the process of implementing a shared service centre. The transition within finance was mostly done conceptually but requires a lot of detailed smoothening. The transition within HRM has yet to mature, migrating from several decentralized ways of working in multiple software applications towards a best practice supported by HFG’s ERP application IFS.

The tasks of the Business Solutions Specialist will include but are not limited to the following:

  • model and analyse business processes including related functions, roles, software applications, risks and controls, measurements and performance indicators;
  • monitor if business activities are executed according the HFG management system and identify and analyse deviations in order to propose potential improvements;
