Lead, drive and develop global Record to Report end-to-end process

You lead a team of five Global Process Experts – the overall responsibility of the team is to design, implement and own the end-to-end Record to Report process in compliance with regulatory and statutory requirements across functional, geographic and business unit boundaries. You give guidance, advice and support to the Global Process Experts team regarding the implementation of improvement initiatives and you ensure the maintenance of a high level of engagement with stakeholders across the Global RTR process.

We work with agile methodology in sprints – identify needed change, design and implement new optimized process, test and revise on a continued basis. The daily tasks and responsibilities of the team are to:

  • Carve out processes to implement in our shared services centers in different locations across the globe
  • Digitalize – implement new tools – e.g. for reconciliation, transfer pricing and others
  • Standardize, automate and optimize key business processes
  • Design and implement appropriate process performance metrics to ensure optimal service delivery
  • Align the Global RTR Process with the RHI Magnesita Operating Model
  • Define process improvement projects (time, quality and cost) and decide on their implementation
