Junior Implementation Consultant
This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking for their first job out of full time education or their first meaningful job within a software company.
We are looking for a Junior Software Implementation Consultant to work with us at Oleeo on our bespoke Recruitment SaaS software. We will train you not only in the technical skills that you need, but we'll also ensure we look after you as you might perhaps be entering you first job from full time education. We understand that your first job is a big step and decision for you.....so we'll make sure we are with you all the way with honest and transparent interactions that support you as a person, not an application number! If you are invited to the first round interview, our Head of Talent - Jennifer Herbert- will ensure you are looked after and have your expectations constantly managed with a consistently caring approach.
We are looking for individuals who are either wanting to start their first job in implementation out of full time education, or maybe you’re wanting move jobs to improve your configuration skills on our exciting, complex product. You will work with some prestigious clients across various industries on our award winning e-recruitment platform.
Our implementation consultants hold a vital role in our company. They conduct business requirement gathering from our existing and new clients to establish the recruitment business needs; then provide a high quality of service by configuring and implementing our e-recruitment technology for customers, ensuring that the scope, quality and budget expectations of our customers are met.
It's such an exciting place to be as you will get to support our clients with their strategic hiring, talent management and recruitment processes. Not only will your implementation skills improve, but also your general business and consulting skills will be developed as you will be spending so much time with your client in the initial stages of their interaction with Oleeo.
You won't be alone as you'll consistently work with other team members across the implementation, and wider operations team to deliver e-recruitment systems implementations.
We run a structured on-boarding programme designed to deliver strong product and business knowledge. The programme lasts between 4 and 12 weeks depending on your level of experience, after which you will be ready to get involved with our customers.
The programme is very supportive towards you as a new member of Oleeo and the Operations team. We ensure you receive group, as well as one on one training, and because of our set-up at Oleeo we are able to take care of you as an individual. We want to ensure you not only build your technical knowledge, but also receive support in building your confidence within this role so that you feel valued and can add value.
You will start off by understanding the wide scope of our recruitment products. This will involve spending a lot of time training and learning on our system, building up your knowledge and expertise over the first 2 years at Oleeo in order to support further career growth.
An ability to work in teams. Delivering great projects to our customers means you will work closely with our customers’ requirements to ensure we understand their goals and requirements and can deliver to them. This will mean working internally with sales, project management and quality control teams, and externally with customer teams from a variety of backgrounds, mainly within Recruitment, Human Resources and Information Technology up to Director level; often from around the world. Our quality control teams are a key interface to make sure that all our work is tested and error free at the point of release to a client.
Be adept at dealing with our customers. While primarily office-based, you will be expected to spend a lot of time with customers, both remotely through virtual meetings and conference calls as well as face to face workshops and meetings. We would expect travel up to a maximum of 25% of the time, within the UK and occasionally abroad, depending on the projects you work on.
Comfortable with taking the initiative and leading. When working with customers you will be running requirements gathering and design meetings, and should be comfortable at times leading and playing an active role in those meetings, plus sometimes running training sessions for small and medium-sized groups.
