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 programme, Royal IHC is migrating large volumes of data between our legacy software into our new systems. The One Data team is primarily tasked with migrating data between the existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) and product data management (PDM) software into our new systems (IFS for ERP and Siemens Team Centre for PDM).

In order to achieve this immense task, we work together with our internal customers (IHC business units) and figure out where we can find the data we need for the migration process (mapping). We then link these legacy databases to our migration framework (using Oracle Enterprise Data Quality), which converts, cleanses and enriches the data prior to importing it into our new systems. The number of parallel projects we need to complete will increase significantly in 2018, so we are looking for data enthusiasts to join our team. As Data Specialist, you will be responsible for the following: 

  • working with Royal IHC business units in order to map legacy data to our new systems
  • reporting erroneous or incomplete data in legacy systems and helping the business to enrich its data prior to the migration
  • fixing any issues in our migration framework and adding new functionality
  • migrating the data to the production environment when we bring the business unit live.

Your profile

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

  • bachelor or masters level of education
  • an enthusiastic approach to data puzzle solutions
  • preferred experience working with: migration projects, data extraction, and manipulation (SQL), ETL tools (Oracle EDQ) and ERP solutions (IFS, Oracle and SAP)
  • flexible attitude towards working hours to provide additional support when approaching data migration deadlines
  • good communication skills in English verbal and written
  • only candidates with valid EU work visa will be considered as viable candidates
  • an online assessment and screening can be part of the recruitment process.
