The ideal candidate will hold a relevant tertiary qualification with approximately three years plus experience in computing and information security in a SAP/ERP environment. In addition, the ideal person will be a team player who enjoys adding value through process and systems improvement, is analytical and has close attention to detail along with the ability to see the big picture. Good communication skills (oral and written), including proficiency in group facilitation and interviewing, are also very important to us.
