      •    An understanding of "what good looks like” in terms of large scale implementation
      •    Proven ability to deliver projects on time, on budget and to quality using project management processes and tools including risk management, financial management and quality assurance
      •    A technical understanding of IT infrastructure and technology development / deployment preferably in web/cloud based solutions
      •    Understanding of system architectures, data strategies, upgrade strategies and cutover planning
      •    Proven experience of using and leading change management activities including change impact assessment, stakeholder management, managing resistance, building change capacity, designing and defining roles and responsibilities.
      •    Cultural awareness and experience of delivering solutions internationally
      •    The willingness and ability to travel internationally for up to 30% in the 2nd year as we implement the new ERP system

The role offers a competitive package in the context of the sector.
