About the role

We're seeking an experienced and tenacious Application Environment and Release Manager to make a mark in our newly merged housing group. You'll have a strong and successful background in managing a number of enterprise application environments in a complex hybrid cloud/on premise IT landscape.

This is a new and significant role within the organisation as the Group embarks upon a multi year programme to refresh its entire business application landscape. You'll ensure that all the enterprise application environments are robustly managed and maintained, by applying the appropriate rigor and controls to the change and release of hot fixes, patches, service packs and upgrades, across the business application landscape, in a methodical and consistent manner so that all BAU and programme environments remain aligned.

You'll also be responsible for setting release policies and ensuring that relevant robust processes and controls are in place, maintained and adhered to, to protect the multiple application environments and ensure that they remain aligned at all times.

We'll rely on you to provide technical enterprise application assurance for all enterprise application environments in use, acting as the environment manager and gatekeeper for all BAU environments by ensuring that suitable testing and implementation quality standards have been adhered to.

About you

To be successful you will have good 'hands on' experience working in a structured IT department in a similar role, being responsible for the control and management of multiple enterprise business application environments.

You will need to be an excellent leader and communicator, adept at managing multiple demands yet have the confidence to be pragmatic in your approach. Experience of working during a period of large scale change in a fast paced challenging ERP environment based upon Microsoft Dynamics365 and supporting Microsoft technologies is desirable but not essential.

You will be a fast learner, able to quickly gain a strong technical understanding of Clarion's hybrid enterprise solution and its underlying technical platforms. As an IT professional with a background in business application environment management, incorporating change and release in a complex enterprise application landscape, you will have previous experience and exposure to a range of release methods, processes and tools. You will be a clear methodical thinker with excellent problem solving skills.

In return we can offer you a competitive salary and generous benefits package in a supportive environment, with plenty of scope for your career advancement.

If you feel your attributes and skillset match our requirements, then we welcome your application.

Closing Date: Wednesday 24th January at midday
