This replaces a manual process at the heart of the operation with a brand new technology (SAP4Hana). We are aware that this will not be delivered in one go and hence we will run continuous improvement over the coming 6 month.

- agile experience is a plus

- min 3 years experience in area of project delivery preferably in IT implementation

Looking for a person that has a business mindset first and a IT understanding second. Would be good if he / she has experience with IT tool implementation so that he / she can translate the business requirements into IT requirements and can anticipate possible issues on technical side and from the perspective of change management.
