ERP Product Owner and Systems & Processes Change Co-ordinator
The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) is the independent body created by Parliament in 2009 to regulate and administer MPs' pay, pensions, business costs and expenses. We ensure transparency and fairness in the way MPs are remunerated and reimbursed for their business costs and expenses, processing around 15,000 claims for costs and expenses each month and publishing the details of these every two months.
IPSA is transforming the way it works, to ensure it continues to provide high quality services to MPs, and to streamline its business operations. This includes implementation of a new, single Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. As a result, we are looking to appoint a Product Owner for the ERP. The person filling this role will also work across the full range of IPSA's systems and its network of business processes to assess changes, and to co-ordinate their delivery.
Key areas of responsibility:
- Proactively identifying potential improvements to the way IPSA uses its ERP and other systems and processes.
- Assessing the impact of changes and ensuring they are implemented effectively, working with IPSA business stakeholders, other IPSA IT system owners, the IT department, business process owners, and suppliers.
- Acting as contract manager for the supplier of the ERP, understanding and reporting on costs, and ensuring IPSA secures value for money from the product.
What we are looking for
You will have experience of managing change, projects and suppliers, and an ability to make things happen through people you do not directly manage. You will be a completer-finisher who doesn't lose sight of the bigger picture, with good communication and analytical skills. You will have experience of working with an ERP, and an understanding of accountancy and IT will be an advantage.
