Our Mission...

Trade Ledger exists to create a world where every business gets the capital it needs to thrive. Through the use of smart technology and new digital datasets we have created a credit orchestration platform so lenders can embed, launch and scale next-gen working capital products - quickly to a much wider audience.

We specialise in making complex working capital products — Invoice Finance, Asset-Based-Lending, and Receivables Finance — simple, intuitive, and sustainable. From origination to in-life management, our ‘out-of-the-box’ designs help lenders launch new digital products in as little as 90-days.

The Role - Senior Implementation Manager

In this customer-facing, hands-on role you will take full accountability for the end to end implementation of the Trade Ledger platform into a new client, either directly or via an SI partner. Our clients include large banks and non-bank lenders.

Once the contracts have been inked, you will guide a team to support a client’s adoption of the Trade Ledger platform into their business. This journey includes everything from configuration, through customer integrations, pre-handover testing, customer UAT, customer change management, launch planning, training, hypercare and the hand-over to BAU support.

You will also be ‘the face’ of Trade Ledger to our clients / SI partners. You will nurture the relationship on the ground, providing project updates and managing a diverse range of resources, on-site, offshore, permanent and contract. Depending on the size and nature of the engagement, it may be led via a 3rd party SI, so you will need to ensure that there is cohesion from start to finish, and the partners have what they need. Delivery through Partners is a new model for us and your expertise will be crucial in defining and shaping this collaborative approach.

You’ll be naturally adept at managing expectations, ensuring clients understand their obligations and giving bad-news (there is always some) in a professional and transparent way that engenders confidence that you have everything under control. Maintaining a good ongoing relationship with the customer will assist in ongoing account management and involve the Support Team if anything tricky crops up.
