Wanting Progression in Bridgnorth, United Kingdom

61 months ago

I have a bit of a dilemma on my hands.

I have been offered a secondment to start a new project to implement a company wide software upgrade and be the finance representative.

I am currently an Assistant Management Accountant for a large company, I am part qualified studying Strategic Level of CIMA, looking to be promoted to a Management Accounting position.

Senior management are aware of this and have thus suggested I be put on a secondment as the Finance representative for a new company wide software implementation.

This will make me the software expert for the Finance department, I have been told when I return to Management Accountants that I would be too good for my current role and would have to have a new uprated role.

This project is likely to last around a year.

My concern in taking this secondment is how it will be viewed by my next employer? Does it also limit me to having to complete the project as potentially I could be fully qualified by the end of the year?

What are people opinions on this?

Thanks
