Applications Technical Team Leader

Permanent | Circa £52k + 10% bonus

South Lanarkshire

My client, a Scottish success story, with over 120 years' worth of history, and now a globally recognised brand name, are in the early stages of their largest ever transformation programme. This programme is all-encompassing and covering all aspects of the business from IT, ERP, sales & marketing, production, and logistics.

One function which is receiving a great deal of investment for growth is the Business Applications team. With a major IFS and Oracle upgrade programme in its early stages, it is important that the existing team continue to deliver relevant data to the extremely high levels they have so for done. Having recently made a couple of senior hires, they are looking to continue developing this team by adding an Applications Technical Team Leader.

As the successful candidate, you will report directly in to the BI Strategy Leader, and be expected to lead, build, and retain a team of experienced developers, who focus on creating applications for business-wide use. As such, an ability to work closely with a range of stakeholders, and understand their requirements through all stages of the SDLC is essential. There is also a big requirement on managing and maintaining existing 3rd party supplier relationships.

You will demonstrate exceptional best practice and documentation, and instill such principles in your team. You will have a genuine passion for technology, be aware of market trends and technical advancements, and look to introduce new technologies where applicable. 

My client can be quite flexible on the technical requirements for this role, as it really is as important to be able to lead the team effectively as it is to have the relevant technologies. The ideal candidate will have experience with:

  • IFS
  • Oracle
  • Sharepoint

However, in depth knowledge of any major ERP system will be beneficial, along with some experience in manufacturing or FMCG.

This really is a fantastic role for an experienced team lead who has some mentoring experience to take the next step in their career. You will be rewarded with a great base salary, generous bonus, and some genuinely market leading benefits, as well as opportunities to attend training courses, and gain qualifications.
