The SAP BW / Analytics Support Consultant
As a member of the Analytics Support team you will provide support and best practice advice and guidance to both new and established customers. You will also work with new projects as well as existing implementations, and you will support all versions of BW from 7.0 up to BW4HANA 2.0, as well as embedded analytics.
The team supports around 30 SAP BW customers who run all versions of BW from BW 7.0 to BW4HANA 2.0. We are a SAP Platinum Partner with a growing S/4 embedded analytics and BW4HANA customer base.
This role can either be based in a Managed Services office or home-based (depending on the distance from the nearest Managed Service office). It will have the expectation of limited travel to suit the install-base business requirements and therefore there is an expectation for travel either to a customer site or company offices resulting in potential travel up to 40% of your time.
If you are a home-based consultant then you must be able to work effectively in that environment, and wherever you work you must be able to establish a good working relationship with a team that is distributed across the country.
From a technical point of view, you must have a good understanding of all aspects of SAP BW, including data extraction, data modelling and the reporting tools, but your communication skills, your attitude and your willingness to learn are just as important as your technical skills.

+ Excellent communication skills
+ Excellent business analysis & technical analysis skills
+ Excellent spoken & written English
+ Solid customer-facing skills
+ Ability to work remotely without any problems.
