They are seeking to recruit a skilled Systems Development Manager ideally with experience of the professional body sector and/or awarding organisations. The post holder will be responsible for the performance, integrity, security and development of all CRM systems and the interface with the CMS platform to ensure all organisational needs are met as the needs of the business grow.

  • Set, monitor and enforce appropriate systems standards by developing relevant policies, procedures, and controls

  • Plan, manage, install, test and monitor all development work, system changes, upgrades and updates (in line with agreed budget) Consider both back-end organisation of data and front-end accessibility for end-users and make recommendations for improvements as required
