We are Accenture, a global professional services company, searching for an experienced Higher Education Workday professional to join us as a Workday Delivery Lead supporting major client implementations, continuous innovation & optimization services to join our experienced Higher Education Team.

This individual will be part of a team of professionals focused on cloud-based implementation, data-reporting operations and optimization services supporting the essential institutional functions of the Workday HCM/Payroll/Financials & Student platform for faculty, administrators, and students.  For many of our higher education clients, successfully moving their operations into cloud environments is a major focus and the continual uptake of new functionality can be hampered by simply supporting the current Workday operations. Helping institutions take best advantage of new functionality, enhanced enterprise data analysis/reporting and additional technology advances and operational support models is important to longer-term institutional success.  Workday is a critical component of many of the cloud solutions we design, which is why Accenture has assembled a team of very specialized Workday-certified professionals dedicated to higher education and improving the overall administrative, faculty and student experience for the institutions we serve.

What’s in it for You
Help higher education leaders define and execute their strategy and give them, their institution, and its faculty & students the adaptability they need in a fast-changing world.  Join a team of like-minded professionals dedicated to supporting the unique mission of higher education, leveraging Workday capabilities. Take your Workday skills and career to the next level, mastering complex projects while expanding your leadership and advisory skills with a market-leading team. Rewarding compensation & benefits commensurate with experience.
  
RESPONSIBILITIES:
• Leading clients through the entire implementation & systems development lifecycle, as a Workday functional specialist.
• Advise clients on strategies, options, and risks, and recommend varied approaches to meet business goals
• Identify business requirements and lead functional design, process design (including scenario design, flow mapping), and prototyping sessions 
• Engaging with customers to support their ongoing Workday journey through continuous automation and deployment.
• Understanding and advising on organizational and workforce impact of implementation of cloud-based solution.
• Assisting clients to fully leverage the Workday system into their current business environments.
• Encouraging and supporting business process optimization
• Developing client-specific strategies to advance their usage of the full capability of the entire Workday platform, including the introduction of new products, functionality yet to be implemented, and specialized data analysis & reporting, focused upon improving the overall effectiveness & efficiency of client administrative operations and advancing their mission.
• Scaling analytics and reporting, including worksheets, discovery boards & PRISM analytics
• Advising on Security Administration Framework and governance
• Promoting expanded technology use, such as machine learning (AI)
• Leveraging existing application management services (AMS) capabilities to support higher education, including student support capabilities.
