IFS Recruitment Partners of Choice
The implementation project of IFS Apps EE had just gone live. Realised that they needed to strengthen their team with specific skillsets (both functional and technical) to bolster their small internal IFS department made up of IFS freelance consultants (who had been previously placed by IT Works as well as in-house end-users. With plans to upgrade to IFS Cloud within the next 12 months.
The business already had a freelance IFS Service and Maintenance specialist supporting the project through the pre and post-go-live implementation phases. However, their strategy was to hire in permanent specialist who had expertise in the Service and maintenance function to liaise and co-ordinate end-user requirements and business processes.
- Strength their team
- Hire SME to build on existing IFS knowledge within the business
- Create a sustainable team structure pre–IFS Cloud upgrade
- Re-allocate budget to longer-term requirement
Looking for someone with a functional and technical skillset. They needed someone with financials and service management expertise who had a technical understanding of customisations, user administration (including permission sets), IFS lobbies, and crystals report writing.
With niche IFS requirement, the search for the ideal candidate within a commutable distance who met the client’s expectations was difficult search. However, with our extensive 20 year IFS candidate network, we were able to provide the client with a shortlist of 2 candidates within a 48 hour window.
The Hiring Process
The hiring process was a 2-stage interview with both candidates. Informal meeting to understand IFS experience in conjunction with the job spec required, getting to know the company from a project standpoint, and career development opportunity. The second stage was on-site to meet the in-house team, with a more in-depth discussion on project requirements (asked to provide examples of previous project experience and how they contribute internally). Selected one person, who could perform both technically and functionally within the role.
From requirement to offer made in 3 weeks. Since placement, IT Works have maintained a relationship with both parties and are now working in partnership with any future requirements.
With the right expert in place, the business has gained skillset stability, extended IFS knowledge, and enabled the roadmap to IFS Cloud to be put into motion.
