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.

IFS Technical Contractors having part time availability is becoming very common with clients only having budget or work levels to fit certain days. That is leaving some high level skilled contractors with 2 days a week available. Please contact me should you require further details on who is available and what IFS technical skills areas they cover.

Looking forward to the new implementations of Apps 10 after it was officially announced at the World Conference this week. Interested to see how existing clients find the new functionality available especially AI. Also will they be looking for Apps 10 to be bedding in before upgrading? I’m expecting strong uptake at the end of year moving into 2019. I do know a couple of contractors who have hands on Apps 10 experience who will be looking for work from July.
