IT professional with background in IT consulting and business analysis.
Information Technology / IT
I have been working as a self employed consultant since December 2018 so I am confident in managing my own workload and prioritising to ensure deadlines are met. Most recently I've been working with a HR Director, sourced a cloud HR solution to replace manual processes & also managed the tender process for her. This work has now completed and due to a change in my circumstances I am now seeking a permanent role ideally a job share or part time as I have a eight year old son.
I have over 15 years experience of working in IT roles including application support, business analysis and IT consultancy. I have understanding of digital software development e.g. mobile applications and also of digital architecture e.g. cloud storage, cloud software, datacentres. Additionally I have extensive knowledge of ERP solutions (Oracle, SAP) and the challenges there are in integrating them with digital services where the pace of delivery and change is so much quicker.
Having worked in multiple industries such as financial services, retail, manufacturing and healthcare I have knowledge of a range of business processes and how IT systems can be utilised to introduce process efficiencies, reduce manual effort and negate human error.
Some examples of improvements I have delivered are:
- Re-designed release process introducing drop down lists in user forms which resulted in improved user experience, increased efficiency and reduced the number of change requests rejected.
- Implemented improvements to Procure to Pay process, introduced purchasing cards functionality, automating invoice approvals & also ‘No PO no Pay’ process, which resulted in saving of 1 FTE.
- Reduced the number of incidents logged by 60% in 12 months after delivering training to Finance and Purchasing users.
- Delivered Oracle E-Business suite improvements – implemented ‘No PO no Pay’ and payables invoicing efficiencies reducing manual intervention and inefficiency.
