The organisation are looking to realign/reengineer their IT systems into one common platform which is most likely going to be SAGE 200 - within a cloud based Azure domain.
The group are a multinational organisation that are a sustainable products organisation that have three companies:
Corby – current framework in this office connects to a central server in the Benelux region. There is a remote desktop that connects to this server.
Newport - Standalone server, with access to Co data on a hosted platform.
Skipton - Remote desktop farm to connect to our two remote terminal servers onsite. App server, DC and also a SQL reporting server.
With multiple offices throughout Europe and over 150 years of pedigree, the group are well established and secure.
The ultimate opportunity here is to be the champion of all IT projects for one part of the group as they enter their new phase of growth. Your recommendations, consultative approach and technical prowess, will be required in terms of implementation and business systems change and risk management. Current IT systems will need BAU attention throughout the project phase too, therefore the role is 70% project and 30% BAU. Working closely with the MD for the group, you will have control and autonomy to make changes that benefit the group.
The role will involve a large element of freedom to work on the other sites such as the Corby and Newport facilities but will primarily be based 90/95% of the time at Skipton or via home working.

We also use Tableau and Power BI for reporting.
The goal for the company is to bring all systems together as they implement the sage 200 server. This is currently being discussed within the group and could be on the Azure cloud or hosted onsite in NL
