Are you looking for a challenging role in an environment that is open, vibrant and welcomes new ideas? Then join the University of East London as a MS Dynamics Support & Development Specialist.
It’s a particularly exciting time here at the University as, under our 10-year strategy, Vision 2028, we’re committed to providing students with the skills necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world. And, right now, our IT Services department has an exciting opportunity for a well-organised individual with a firm grasp of Microsoft certified Dynamics 365 and Enterprise Integration, plus experience in Azure Functions, Azure Service Bus and Logic Apps, to join them.
Part of a multi-disciplinary team of application specialists and delivery experts, your primary focus will be on supporting and delivering a range of developmental activities designed to rapidly improve and support our Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform and bring technical and functional expertise to the University. Day-to-day, we’ll rely on you to ensure that developmental efforts are coordinated in alignment with other services - for example SharePoint, WEB and VLE etc. – in order to provide an integrated and seamless user experience across multiple systems.
You’ll also be responsible for ensuring a stable, reliable and high performing system that’s supported in line with departmental standards. And, when it comes to contributing to the existing systems developmental roadmap or ensuring all operational and developmental activities are planned efficiently according to strategic priorities, again we’ll count on you. Contributing to technical solutions and improvements, collaborating on design decisions and coordinating activities between stakeholders and internal/external development teams – all are aspects of this interesting, varied and vital role.
To succeed, you’ll need proven relevant experience gained in an agile environment. You’ll also need significant knowledge and experience of the management, support, configuration, upgrade and enhancements of Enterprise Applications. Used to working in an ITIL-driven environment, you have a good working knowledge of ITIL principles and processes and knowledge of Standard Security principles, both from a systems and network perspective. Some governance experience is also required, including policies and processes for infrastructure, Security, Data Protection, PCI DSS and Business Continuity.
A positive team player who proactively supports activities and has the confidence to progress chase information, you’re as comfortable writing system roadmaps and influencing technical design as you are managing major infrastructure and change programmes. What’s more, you have a proven ability to work in high pressure project environments and produce key deliverables to tight deadlines by effectively managing multiple priorities. And, because you’ll need to build relationships with a variety of key senior stakeholders and vendors, you’ll also need to bring excellent all-round communication skills.
So, if you have what we are looking for and are keen to take on this exciting challenge, get in touch.
