Job description

Systems Accountants combine experience of finance and business with strong IT skills and expert knowledge of specific (finance) software.

Systems Accountants often work on temporary assignments for clients who wish to roll out new financial systems, although some organisations employ Systems Accountants in house.

Typical duties include:

  • Maintaining financial IT systems to ensure that they meet company requirements.
  • Ensuring that users are properly trained and able to fully exploit the capabilities of finance systems.
  • Establishing and monitoring best practice.
  • Configuring systems and monitoring performance.
  • Evaluating systems, proposing and implementing change.
  • Planning and implementing systems upgrades.


Systems Accountants are usually part or fully qualified accountants with a background in financial or management accounting. Just as important, however, is an aptitude for working with complex IT systems coupled with experience of working with specific financial software such as Oracle Financials, Cognos, Hyperion and SAP.
