We have an exciting opportunity for a motivated and enthusiastic Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM specialist with configuration and customisation skills to take on a pivotal role in maximising the organisation’s recent investment in the Dynamics platform. Your role will be to work closely with ends users and development teams alike, deploying your business analysis, training, and technical skills to deliver ongoing improvements and ensure best practise. With the recent move to Dynamics, the platform will allow the candidate to influence real world change through enhanced campaigning and fundraising activity taking place through a centralised and well used core business system. In the first instance, the candidate will be responsible specifying requirements for the post go-live of the new CRM.
You will join the Applications team which has a strong focus on making improvements to our technology estate and processes – through business analysis and project work. The team also supports, maintains, and develops our estate of core business applications to enable Friends of the Earth’s people and campaigns to thrive. The team, and this role, works closely with other teams with the Technology and Infrastructure department such a Data Engineering, and outside of the department such as Digital Delivery, to ensure that processes, user experience and data flows align.
In terms of technology, you’ll be well-versed in the latest Microsoft stack, and understand the nuances of the Dataverse and Power Platform and how Dynamics CRM interfaces with it. You will also be comfortable with quickly learning new technologies and understanding how they interface with each other. You’ll be adept at communicating complex issues to different audiences and bringing both the team and stakeholders with you in resolving issues, exceeding expectations, and ultimately improving the service we offer.
