What you'll do

The Senior Solution Consultant is the solid foundation of a sales engagement. You partner with sales team members on new and existing client engagements by helping to lead the functional and technical aspects of the sales process. The Senior Solution Consultant is responsible for aligning Aptitude Software (‘Aptitude’) product capabilities with client requirements and evangelizing the benefits of the Aptitude product suite.

You will be required to leverage your financial and accounting or financial systems implementation experience combined with a thorough understanding of Aptitude products to provide and articulate commercially sound solutions that exceed stakeholder expectation. This also requires the ability to analyze and pre-empt client issues to present a robust solution and manage risk both to the sale and delivery of the end state solution. You further reinforce your credibility and trust with client’s representatives through your excellent communication skills and ability to articulate Aptitude’s value through stories.

There will be a requirement for you to configure and support the delivery of demonstrations pertaining to Aptitude’s products and solutions aligned with client requirements. To ensure successful delivery during each client interaction, you must lead the configuration process by being cognizant of all dependencies and teams that impact a successful configuration. You will manage these dependencies and the combined solution team to advise appropriately and meet deadlines.

Organizationally you identify opportunities for growth or improvement and work with your leadership and wider team to enact change to both processes and products. You are expected to inspire those around you, establishing and harvesting best practices and striving towards a model of repeatability.

  • Banking industry experience (Commercial, Retail or Investment), along with the applicable accounting background; preferably a qualified accountant.
  • Demonstrated experience in solution consulting / pre-sales, either for a vendor technology company or a ‘Big 4’ or other consulting firm, selling services or solutions to banks.
