At VFP Consulting, we believe in hiring great people, not just great resumés. We create value for our clients through exceptional service: providing knowledgeable recommendations, identifying and mitigating risk, and challenging the status quo.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT AT VFP
You’ve got an extraordinary opportunity to join a small, successful and ambitious company on the rise, and to help shape our future. Perhaps you’ve thrived in this kind of environment before, or maybe you’re with a larger firm and looking for a change of scenery. We’re offering a chance to directly influence the evolution of our business with your talent, take your career to the next level, and have fun doing it.
WHAT THE ROLE LOOKS LIKE
As a Senior Consultant working directly with clients, you’re an advisor building strong and trusted relationships. You’ll deliver end-to-end consulting services on the Salesforce platform using FinancialForce Financial Management to support our customers’ business needs. Typical projects involve requirement gathering workshops, documentation, data migration, system configuration, testing, integration, change management and client engagement. You’ll have a chance to own it all.
Our clients are located throughout the U.S. and many have global offices. At VFP you’ll get to work remotely from anywhere in the continental U.S. and travel to client locations as required. On average you should expect to travel 30-50% of the time to support several concurrent projects.
