Hybrid working mix of home and office.
Sitting within the IT team, you’ll take ownership of SAP and lead a team of specialists in building SAP technologies to meet changing business requirements. From design through to implementation and support, you’ll manage every stage of the product life cycle, analysing performance and managing issues when they occur.
If a major incident should occur, as an IT Service Specialist, you’ll be first on the scene—no matter what time of day or night—and will be on the front line working to restore business as usual. You’ll also conduct investigations to make sure that such incidents don’t reoccur. When things go wrong, you and your team will ensure we always come back stronger, smarter and more risk-aware.
Leading by example, you’ll motivate your team and encourage a culture of continuous improvement here. As an important player in our ongoing business change, you’ll demonstrate why your career here should go to the next level.
A bit about you
You’ll have extensive experience supporting global business systems at organisations comparable to Clarks in terms of size and scope as well as have experience with SAP HANA and SAP NetWeaver (ABAP and JAVA). Having completed at least three full implementation life cycles, you’ll have a good understanding of migration, upgrades, patching and installing new SAP systems and have be fully aware of disaster recovery. You might have a degree, you might not—what’s important is that you’ve put expertise into practice.
At a time of transition for Clarks, your methodical, procedural approach to supporting SAP systems will provide dependability. With a proven track record in SAP and business change, you’ll inspire confidence in those you work with—something that your approachable and credible communication style will only bolster. You’ll inspire people with your ideas on how to take SAP forward at Clarks and get the backing you need to have a measurable impact. At a company the size of ours, that’s quite an achievement to put your name to.
Clarks, based in Somerset, England, has been at the forefront of innovative shoemaking since its foundation in 1825, when brothers James and Cyrus Clark made a slipper from sheepskin off-cuts. At the time it was ground-breaking; a combination of invention and craftsmanship that’s remained at the heart of what the brand does now.
In the Clarks archive of more than 22,000 pairs are shoes that have sparked revolutions and defined generations. From the original Clarks Desert Boot, first designed by Nathan Clark and launched in 1950 to the iconic Wallabee, each design has an instantly recognisable signature – a unique combination of craftsmanship and innovation that make it unmistakably Clarks.
Underpinned by a rich heritage and strong values, Clarks is a leading global footwear brand serving millions of consumers across the world, operating retail, wholesale, franchise and online channels in over 100 markets worldwide supported by nearly 6,000 employees across the world.
In February 2021, Clarks entered a new chapter in its history as it formed a partnership with LionRock Capital, positioning the iconic footwear brand for future success as it enters its third century.
