Networks are about more than IT Networks. They are about connecting people who make things possible. Close teamwork is key to understanding how IT can help integrate processes into systems. We put this insight into practice, and it's part of our success. We want to stay ahead in the future, so our team is currently seeking a technical and functional SAP specialist to support our dynamic manufacturing and logistics business.
This role is an exciting opportunity to build on your current skills and develop new ones as you'll be required to handle both the technical and functional aspects of SAP ERP (an SAP S/4 HANA migration is planned). You could be an expert in either, but would need to be willing to embrace either functional or technical capabilities based on your current specialism.
What you'll be doing
As a Technical Consultant, you'll provide full end-to-end technical concepts and support for our logistics function within an established SAP ERP environment. Working in a team of functional SAP specialists and ABAP developers, you'll deliver solutions that fulfil business requirements.
As a Functional Consultant, you'll provide full end-to-end SAP solutions for our logistics function, covering SAP ERP (MM, PP) from analysis and design, implementation and beyond, to maintenance and application operations. You'll make sure that new changes are addressed and business requirements are met, interacting closely with the business partners and external IT suppliers/SAP developers.
