Meet Dionne, Finance Systems Specialist

Let's meet another friendly face at BlueScope in Port Kembla! Dionne works in finance and is devoted to increasing the efficiency of processes and communication throughout the business. Learn more about her role below.

When did you start with BlueScope and what attracted you to the company?

After completing an accounting cadetship with a firm I was eager to get some private accounting experience. BlueScope immediately appealed to me as it is a large corporation with the potential to provide numerous opportunities. Also, at the time it was relatively local and offered me the flexibility to complete my university degree whilst undertaking a graduate finance role. I started with the company in 2011.

What is involved in your role?

In my role as Finance Systems Specialist, I am responsible for exploring new ways of working for our finance teams. Currently I am leading the roll-out of Power BI for our Australian Steel Products finance teams, and experimenting with how RPA (Robotic Process Automation) can enable our finance teams to spend less time processing and more time partnering with business. Along with two other team members, I am also responsible for the governance, administration and development of TM1 (our enterprise-planning software).

What has been one of the greatest lessons or challenges?

You can never underestimate the importance of communication in change management; working with people closely and keeping them updated provides significant returns when it comes to adoption.

What do you most enjoy about working for BlueScope?

I enjoy the vast amount of opportunity that exists. In the eight years that I have been working here, I have had five roles, all of which have provided me with very different challenges and experiences.
