In this role, you’ll use your Workday knowledge to collaborate with internal key partners and our best-in-class technology team to design and configure business processes in Workday and all other HR owned systems. You will be responsible for determining organization and security management requirements and implement Workday best practices in line with regulatory, company, and department policy. As an integral member of the team, you’ll provide consultative guidance and leadership on Workday projects. You are an influencer, thought leader, and should possess the in-depth expertise and credibility to provide meticulous guidance to our team. You’ll perform hands-on activities to ensure project success, be responsible for evaluating technical and functional requirements, as well as influencing the future roadmap to be in line with our strategic goals.

We make decisions fast and you’ll have a seat at the table to make meaningful recommendations and insights. You're a change agent; excited by the opportunity of how Workday can continue driving Bloomberg.

  • Recommend sound solutions and efficient methods to support end to end business processes
  • Provide guidance regarding security policies and role assignments, ensuring data integrity and compliance with GDPR, internal process and controls, and any other regulatory mandate
  • Act as an active member for the Workday community – staying ahead of Workday updates and practices to think innovatively, and make recommendations to implement to deliver tactical enhancements
  • Be a trusted advisor and partner frequently with senior leaders, business stakeholders and other HR teams across the globe
  • Display confidence, emotional intelligence, and decisiveness

You’ll need to have:

  • A minimum of 5 years of proven Workday expertise designing, implementing and supporting Enterprise-grade security solutions meeting complex business requirements

  • Experience with running integrations, and performing root cause analysis when issues occur
  • General knowledge of basic and advanced security configuration
  • Great analytical skills and creative problem solving, showing ability to trace root-causes, collect, organize, analyze and disseminate significant amounts of information with attention to detail and accuracy
  • Facilitate partnerships with cross-functional teams, and interactions with upper management
  • Superb communication skills used to form credibility and relationships with ease
  • Attested experience influencing and directing others, often without direct line reporting authority
  • Ability to work both independently and as part of a team, follow-through on both verbal and written instructions
  • Flexibility to multitask, prioritize, and organize multiple projects/tasks concurrently while meeting required deadlines

We’d love to see:

  • Working knowledge of Workday HCM-related modules (Benefits, Time & Absence, Compensation, Recruiting, Security)
