Job Description

TEP Experienced User - Fixed Term Contract (9 months)

Description

At Pearson, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.

Job Purpose:

The Enabling Program (TEP) is simplifying how Pearson employees work, by introducing new, globally consistent HR, finance, procurement, supply chain, and rights and royalties solutions, which will be delivered in ‘Waves’ over the next couple of years. It will help to unite employees around the world, enabling us to operate as a truly global organization, and ensure that Pearson is fit for the future.

A key component of the TEP solution is the set up of a structured and robust support model. This ensures that each Pearson business has adequate support following the implementation and helps to embed the new ways of working.

The first implementation of the Finance, Supply Chain and Procurement processes was for the UK business and a number of international markets. This will be followed by the North America region and subsequent Pearson markets over the next 2-3 years.

The Experienced User role is an integral part of the overall TEP Support Model and it is envisaged that these roles will be established both within the business and shared service centres that operate many of the TEP processes.

The purpose of the role is three-fold:

1) Implementation PhasePartner with the TEP programme and project teams to impact assess the deployment of the Global Design to the wave/country/geography and collaborate to achieve the successful change management activities. To achieve this they will be need to be involved to understand the solution, process documentation, data migration and other key elements of the programme. This combination of programme and line organisation knowledge will enable the role to effectively support the business in its transition to the target Pearson organisation and future business processes. 2) Post Go Live Support PhaseDuring the hypercare period of 6-8 weeks following the Go-Live Date, there will be an elevated level of user support required. This will include but not be limited to, surgeries, updating training content etc versus BAU where the role will subtly change to be on-going support (but less full time), retrofit of new functionality and continuous improvement 3) Business as Usual PhaseDuring this phase there is a shift in focus of the role. The Experienced User will continue to provide support to the wider user base on the running of day to day business processes, however this demand will reduce following solution stability and the close of Hypercare.

At this point the role focus shifts to partnering with the Capability Centre of Excellence to introduce future change, originating from both the business and centralised TEP activities. The individual's superior level of knowledge and expertise in both core and exception business scenarios is vital to successfully play this longer term role.
