For this reason they require not only an individual with an intimate knowledge of JDE but also complete IT Management as a whole.

Reporting to the Head of IT, you will be taking ownership of the upgrade as well as the day to day management of IT Management for the organisation.

Administration, management and support of the JD Edwards ERP system.
