The University of Strathclyde is pleased to offer an exciting opportunity to an experienced IT lead to play a leading role in the implementation of a modern HR payroll system.

The University is currently in the pre-implementation phase of this major strategic project to design, procure and successfully implement a new cloud hosted HR/Payroll system. Delivery of this system will dramatically enhance the employee lifecycle experience and transform management capabilities, through employee and manager self-service functionality and the provision of real-time reporting, as well as increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of processes within HR, Payroll and Finance.

The HR Payroll Replacement Project objectives are to implement a flexible, efficient, responsive, robust and future-proofed Web enabled system that meets the needs of our staff and other stakeholders.

As the Senior IT lead, you will have a solid background and track record of Business analysis and software development, and experience in implementing integrations and data migrations to package solutions. The role will require the management of a small team of developers to work with the supplier and wider IT teams to develop integrations, data migration and BI solutions to complement the existing Management Information solutions. The role will also require production and maintenance of technical and strategy documents, such as data migration strategies, technical specifications and project plans.

The successful candidate will need to create and maintain good working relationships with stakeholders and demonstrate good communication skills. Strong technical expertise along with technical project delivery experience is also required as they will quickly adapt to new technologies and situations to provide solutions that align with business objectives. They will be well organised and a self-starter with very good communication skills and an ability explain technical complexity to non-technical stakeholders to enable effective decision making. Interviews are scheduled to take place in late August 2020, via Zoom. Candidates will be invited to attend an initial interview, and then, following a further shortlisting, selected candidates will be invited to attend a further panel interview, at a later date.
