They don't hire and fire, people like working there it is a stable solid place to work. Project management is strong here and provides significant support to the consulting & implementation team, and the implementation methods they use and well tried & tested with clear project objectives and project plans.

Location wise, this is home based, so Saffron Walden isn't relevant at all, but ideally you live somewhere from the south of Manchester or south of Hull, through the Midlands area, to Bristol in the West Country, the M4 corridor, London & the home counties and surrounding areas. Since last year, more and more work is being done remotely than ever before. This has created a huge cost saving in hotel and travel expenses and a huge saving in the time that ERP Consultants spend on the road, and furthermore clients have found it a more productive way to work too. So it is likely that the bulk of your implementation and consulting role will be remote, but there will still be a need to travel to your clients when appropriate.

if you are doing ERP consulting in the UK currently please apply, thnak you Jake
