What it’s about

Our assessments need high quality master data to support end-to-end processes, and we are building the Data Quality capability in our Master Data Management team. We are looking for an experienced Data Quality Functional Consultant to lead this work. 

The DQ Functional Consultant will be our expert on SAP Data Quality (SAP Data Services and SAP Information Steward) transformations and analysis. He / she will design and implement robust data quality analysis for SAP and legacy applications to support continual data cleansing, and then help us to proactively validate the quality of data before it enters our applications.

Our Master Data Management team has been in place for two years. We have established an authoring and advisory service and we now need to move forwards into data quality and error prevention. The Data Consultant will focus on project work in this area, putting in place tools and capabilities, training analysts and managing programmes of projects.


What we’re looking for 

We are looking for someone who is customer focused and passionate about data quality, who will spot opportunities, initiate and deliver data quality projects.

Our chosen candidate will be an experienced data consultant with experience in implementing SAP DQ (Data Services and Information Steward) or SAP MDG. They may previously have been a BODS super-user, a functional consultant or developer and will have a background in configuring and maintaining BODS, linking to data sources, determining data rules and writing data interrogation routines.

Our consultant will know SAP master data structures and linkages, and have been through several SAP implementation cycles.
