This is a highly successful, world class ERP & Retail software company, part of a larger group of ERP & CRM software companies and winner of multiple awards. They are engaged in large Retail ERP projects centred on MS Dynamics 365, AX and NAV and need a Senior ERP Project Manager to come on board. They have a great company culture led by the management team, with everyone being genuinely friendly and welcoming.
Most of their staff are based from home and many are out on site, and you will have to visit their head office near Reading fairly frequently, so it would be ideal if you lived within 1-4 hours' drive of Reading.
