Your job

Firstly, it’s important to announce that coming from an IT background is not required for the role of Junior Data Steward. In this position, you will be part of the One IHC programme, which 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.

As a Junior Data Steward, you will be responsible for validating the data quality of the business unit that will be migrated. This requires you to perform a quality check of the available data, complete any missing part data and find inconsistencies. You will do this together with a Data Expert with the goal of preparing the data migration to the new PDM and ERP environment. You will be part of the Data Cleansing Team and report to the Data Team Lead.

To be eligible for the position of Junior Data Steward, you must be capable of processing information in a short amount of time and possess strong analytical abilities. This is because it’s vital for the effectiveness of our organisation that we migrate all the data and in the correct way. Our approach regarding this position is that you will perform it for a certain amount of time (approximately six months) and move to another position within the One IHC programme. This is a great opportunity to learn the basics of the One IHC programme and grow into a role that really suits you.

Your profile

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

  • a higher vocational (HBO) or senior secondary vocational (MBO-4) education, and a degree in a technical discipline
  • general technical knowledge and an interest in the industry
  • great attention to detail and proficient computer skills (MS Excel and ERP)
  • a proactive, flexible, resilient and positive attitude, as well as an eagerness to learn
  • a strong command of Dutch and English, both written and verbal.
Please note, an online assessment and screening can be part of the recruitment process. Only candidates with work visa will be considered as viable candidates.
