Your job

The One IHC programme develops and implements uniform processes, enterprise-wide data models and state-of-the-art software systems within Royal IHC. As part of this, IHC is converting a high volume of legacy data from our old software systems to our new landscape, comprising IHC’s core software systems (ERP, PDM, CAD and Planning). At IHC, the migration is complex: we come from a landscape of more than 10 different ERP systems, various PDM systems and multiple CAD systems, along with a variety of technical products. Our aim is to realise one ERP system, one PDM system and a much smaller number of CAD systems. As such, the data migration (including information on parts, customers, suppliers, resources and transactions) is a significant undertaking, especially where engineering data is concerned. 

Your main responsibility is to investigate data sources and analyse the quality of data within them. In addition, you will be tasked with cleansing data, and mapping and converting it to the new data model. For this, you will use a state-of-the-art ETL toolkit built on Oracle’s EDQ/EDQP platform. You will be a key member of One IHC’s roll-out team and report to the Data Migration Manager. As a Data Migration Specialist, you will be responsible for the following: 

  • exporting data from a multitude of existing software systems and databases
  • gaining a deeper understanding of the usage of legacy systems and data by interacting with local data experts
  • investigating and determining the quality of the data
  • cleansing data according to carefully documented and coherently explained principles
  • converting data to the new information model, which may also involve splitting and combining data according to prescribed algorithms
  • verifying and testing the correctness of data
  • importing/migrating data to the new systems
  • reporting progress to the Team Leader.

Your profile

To be eligible for the position of Data Migration Specialist, you must have:

  • an HBO level of education (up to and including higher vocational level)
  • at least three years of experience in a comparable position (especially with regards to data cleansing, mapping and conversion)
  • highly developed computer skills and experience with ETL tools, such as Oracle EDQ
  • demonstrable skills in data manipulation and extraction techniques, for example by utilising SQL or other languages for scripting
  • fluency in Microsoft Office, especially Excel and Access
  • an excellent command of Dutch and English (with at least one being your native language)
  • a motivated, proactive and disciplined attitude, with an eye for detail and a passion for faultless results
  • strong communication skills 
  • the willingness to occasionally travel to IHC’s other offices in The Netherlands or the UK
  • an affinity for – or experience in – industrial/technical environments
  • a flexible attitude towards working hours in support of the data migration/conversion activities.
  • only candidates that qualify for work visa will be considered viable. 

Knowledge of IFS Applications, Oracle CRM or Siemens Teamcenter is considered an advantage, but not necessary.

Please note, only candidates that qualify for a work visa will be considered for this position. In addition, an online assessment and screening may form part of the recruitment process.
