What will you be doing?

  • Our Technical experts will help us articulate and present how business can make the leap and take advantage of a move to SAP S/4 HANA.
  • They will lead the technical design and implementation of SAP S/4 migration projects no matter what the target architecture design is.
  • You will work with cross-functional, development and integration teams to ensure the successful delivery of SAP S/4 migration projects
  • No matter your current area of focus, we will enable you to expand this and access other areas of the technologies.
  • We will actively support and encourage this, expecting you to expand your abilities and interests, giving you extra “currency” in the SAP & business space, which you will have with you for the rest of your career.
  • We meet new customers every week, each one of those business faces different industry and market challenges. Can you see through the fog and help them see how they migrate to SAP S/4HANA?
  • Not every customer solution is about just SAP, typically the install base has a plethora of systems that integrate and are part of the journey to SAP S/4HANA and we will need you to use your experience to understand the best way to migrate supplementary systems.
  • We will offer a generous package, allow you to expand your portfolio of SAP and technology knowledge, and give you the opportunity to be part of something. We want you to be involved in building our organisation and allow you to have real involvement and influence.

Is there a match?

  • We are looking for a range of candidate profiles. In our mind the key differentiator will be the level of technical expertise in and around SAP S/4HANA, e.g. migrations/upgrades, SAP Basis, Infrastructure and industry knowledge.
  • Experience of complimentary software used in SAP S/4 HANA migrations such as SAP Data Transition software (SNP) and Testing (Panaya) would be useful.
  • Roles previously held may include Basis Lead and Managers, Technical Architects, Cloud Architects and Integration Leads.
  • Experience of working in industry verticals such as: Automotive, Energy, Pharma, is complimentary but not essential.
  • Ability to think outside of the crowd and bring an edge to our customers when discussing their issues and technical challenges.
  • Ability to challenge without being confrontational.
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills
  • You can work from anywhere in the UK but must be willing to travel across the UK and Ireland to support opportunities.

Underpinning our culture are our core values. They are a living part of our daily interactions, influencing what we do and how we do it. They guide how we work with our colleagues, customers, and partners.

Right to work

Please note that it is a legal requirement that you have the right to work in the UK by the time you commence employment.  We therefore ask those shortlisted for interview to provide evidence of their right to work in the UK during the recruitment process.  

Delaware holds a sponsor licence but not all roles are suitable for sponsorship, especially as, in some cases, individuals are required to work on long term client contracts, and this is not permitted under the sponsorship regime. Also, in some case individuals may be required to work in Ireland or elsewhere in Europe at short notice.  If you do not currently have the right to work in the UK we will still consider your application.  

If your application is successful beyond the first interview stage, we will consider whether sponsorship is a possibility or, where appropriate, whether there are any other immigration options available but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that sponsorship will always be possible.
