ServiceNow Manager required for a growing Renewable Energy business, based out of Glasgow.

The company:

They are a global Renewable Energy business, headquartered out of the UK. They have been around for a number of decades and have thousands of staff, with a recent growth phase both in the UK and the US.

They have a large technical team based out of Glasgow, and are looking to add a ServiceNow Manager to that team. This role is a hybrid one, and would be looking for someone in the Glasgow office ideally 3 days a week. They are based centrally, and there may be a little flexibility on the above.

The role:

This is a newly created role for the company, with the growing presence of ServiceNow across the business. The role is a combination of management, as well as some hands-on skills required - roughly 50/50 in nature. You will be looking after a team of 3 ServiceNow Developers and Administrators initially, and this number may increase as the presence of the technology grows. Currently, it is rolled out across a few teams and there is an ever growing interest from other departments.

The team consists of 1 UK based individual, and 2 in the US (although your hours will be normal UK). Although not a technical focus, you will require enough knowledge in developing in ServiceNow to be able to 'muck-in' and perform day to day support of the system. As well as this, you will be required to have the softer skills and manage stakeholders (internally) across the business. On top of this, you will be expected to drive the strategy and roadmap for ServiceNow across the business and be a key player in that area.

Key Skills required:

** Management or lead experience (ideally team of 2+ individuals)

** Strong technical ServiceNow experience - familiarity with common business processes and operating models across areas including HR, Finance, IT etc

** The ability to write code or scripting (e.g. JavaScript)

** Cloud experience across Azure (or AWS, GCP etc)

** Strong stakeholder management skills

** Knowledge of ITIL

** Experience with common integration methods & technologies (e.g. RESTful API's, SOAP, Integration Hub)

This is a role for a Manager with a technical background, interested to work across a thriving renewables business.

Our clients

Candidates

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen

It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton
