Job Description

IT Manager (MFG/Pro)
Birmingham
£40k-£45k + Pension, Healthcare - including Optical & Dental

We are looking to recruit an experienced IT Manager who is fully conversant with MFG/Pro to drive performance and play an integral part in the day to day activities of my client, a large automotive company.
Based in Birmingham, you`ll be a technical people manager that leads a mixed technology department of 5 and they are responsible for the infrastructure, manufacturing, planning and logistics to support the business operationally, analyse current systems and provide a solution which meets the business strategy.

The role

As an IT Manager (MFG Pro) you will be responsible for the day to day operational output, ensuring a culture of performance management is embedded across the team. You will work closely with senior management and the MFG Pro ERP system that integrates and supports the business strategy. Your main responsibilities will be to provide ERP and ad-hoc application option analysis and advice to the business.
You`ll also be responsible for promoting and implementing a culture of progression and development for staff by way of business beneficial training and development linked to key skills within the IT department. A training budget is available for courses, accreditations and general training that will benefit your group.

The candidate

We are looking for an experienced IT Manager who is fully conversant in MFG/Pro ERP as this is an essential requirement for the role.

You`ll have the technical skills to act as lead with the ERP system (MFG/Pro) so will be covering; installation, availability, space management, backup and recovery, performance tuning and capacity planning.

You`ll be working with logistics and operational management as they look to further implement efficiencies across the business - they`ll be asking how your department can implement required changes to the system in line with their ideas and it will be your role to devise and implement technical changes to the MFG/Pro system.

Infrastructure is Microsoft Windows bias so MS exposure would be assumed but the technical knowledge in the team linked to servers, O/S and desktop is strong but you`ll need a solid Microsoft based overview.
As well as the technical qualifications we are looking for a hands on manager who has experience of leading project teams in a highly demanding environment.

This is a 24/5 operation and as with many suppliers to OEM within automotive, disruptions to production incur significant penalties so your department will be tasked with keeping IT disruption to an absolute minimum.

On that basis, previous experience within automotive logistics would be an advantage but is not strictly essential.

Package

£40k-£45k + pension, healthcare, optical & dental
Mon-Thursday 7.30am - 4.00pm
Fridays 7.30am - 1.30pm
