This is an excellent opportunity to work within a fast-paced, growing organisation who specialise within their own bespoke SAP solutions. As part of an increase in business demand, we are currently looking for an SAP Project Manager to join the business and work consultatively with a number of their blue-chip clients who are based internationally. 

We are specifically looking for someone with strong knowledge in the SAP SD module and experience in delivering technical SAP implementations. For this position, we also require someone who is comfortable with an extensive amount of travel across the EU which will vary depending on business demand.

Experience with the SAP SD module (Pricing/Rebate) and the Order-to-Cash process is essential.

Moving into 2017, all new projects will also be delivered in-line with the SAP4/HANA roadmap.

Your responsibilities will include:
  • End-to-end delivery of the full project life-cycle.
  • Coordinate and coach the project team including the off-shore consultants
  • Support customers in managing their projects in time, scope, budget and quality
  • Align customers on implementation strategies, methodologies/templates and scope
  • Support clients and the project team in the design of business processes
  • Identify key stakeholders and develop existing as well as new client and partner relationships
  • Manage project issues/risks and client expectations and escalate as needed
  • Drive the decision process at clients
  • Manage scope and change requests
  • Provide transparent status reporting both internally and to the client
  • Assist in building templates, best practices and benchmarks from completed projects
  • Requesting appropriate resource skills required for the projects
  • Manage 5-7 clients at any given time
Experience required:
  • 5+ years of SAP project management experience
  • Experience in multiple SAP full life-cycle software implementations (preferably in SAP SD/MM projects)
  • Knowledge of Order to Cash & Finance processes
  • Familiar with the ASAP project methodology (or comparable methodologies for SAP projects)
  • Experience in working with near shore/offshore delivery and with partners
  • Independent thinking with keen problem solving skills
  • Ability to adapt to changing schedules and multiple work plans

Introducing...

Philip Fanthom

Managing Director

I joined Jenrick in 1997, as a Junior Consultant working within both permanent and contract markets.

From 2000 I began to focus the majority of my efforts within The City, successfully developing relationships within the Banking & Financial Services Sector - most of whom are still clients today.

In May 2006, I made the move to become Jenrick Group's Sales Manager, before gaining the opportunity to return to Jenrick IT as Sales Director, before taking on the role of Managing Director.
