IFS Recruitment

I’ve been working at Vector for 10 years. My background was manufacturing and distribution, but I decided to move into recruitment with Vector due to the diverse range of opportunities they provide, which allows me to take full responsibility for my own business success.

Choosing to work within the IFS arena was a decision I made based on the manageable size of the market, and the fact that it is a quality niche ERP due to the investment it gains and the production and release of continually improving versions means increased market share, resulting in a thriving product and user base.

I know my contractors and permanent applicants very well. I am able to provide most contractors with multiple assignments and continuance of contract through Vector. I can advise individuals who would rather stay as a permanent member of staff where they need to look in order to achieve their goals in their next career move.

I work with clients to get them the best solution, whether they are looking for short project-based work or longer implementations. I can help them understand what they need to be looking for in terms of skills and cost – I know what true, current market rates are, who is available and when. I encourage our clients to think further ahead and be more flexible in their planning – looking at full or part time availability to make sure we can deliver the best possible solution within their timeframe, or advising them to wait for the right person to become available.

Offering truly independent advice, I am able to solve obvious problems very quickly – we are regularly placing with clients who have an overall lack of IFS knowledge in-house and want to consider an alternative approach to the traditional Consultancy route.

If you have any specific needs around IFS, then please do get in touch. I’d be delighted to talk through your contract, permanent or fixed price requirements to show you how Vector can help.

With the IFS User conference taking place next week I would be interested to hear any feedback about the two days. Obviously a focus on the new Apps 10 functionality and the growing partner programme. This event has always been viewed as a great opportunity to network and compare experiences with other users. Also to understand which consultancies, partner or independent are able to assist with system enhancements. Very interested in the independent representation this year. Please feel free to email or call me to discuss your experience. Tel 01892 771447.

It is well known there is a lack of permanent IFS resources on the market. After discussing this issue with many clients one of the ways around this is offering 100% remote working. Many IFS consultancies have realised this is the best way to employ with end users beginning to follow suit. IFS candidates are based all over the UK, some in very remote locations. The working from home option has opened up these resources to many UK clients. I currently have a candidate based in Cornwall with great support and administration skills looking for home working. Let me know if they would be of any interest.
