Job Description

SAP Service Delivery Manager


Accenture today is firmly established as the world’s leading IT consulting organization.  In NZ, we offer solutions that traverse multiple enterprise technologies, including SAP, with a huge emphasis on Cloud enablement.

We are experts in all facets of technology consulting spanning design, delivery and ongoing support of enterprise solutions and offer an incredibly dynamic environment to grow your career within.

Reporting to our Application Managed Services Director - SAP Business Group, you will be responsible for the management of the contracted support services to a portfolio of clients. This will involve actively building positive and collaborative relationships with the clients and ensuring compliance of the services to our contractual obligations.

As part of this, you will manage support escalations, pre-sales for new support clients, assist in the development of new support offerings, and some support-based project management. You’ll also perform the role of Engagement Lead for several of our smaller clients.

You’ll be instrumental in creating long-term customer relationships and acting as the bridge between the client and our operational delivery teams. A key responsibility of yours will be governance across all areas of your services including service management, incident and change management, continual service improvement and client satisfaction as well as playing a key role in ensuring the highest level of operational service delivery.

Common-sense and pragmatism is needed – our business readily embraces change, and we need someone who can keep up and meet our business challenges head-on. We’re also an organization on a clear growth trajectory.  You will have a reputation for intuitively knowing how to engage with people, be someone who can influence positive outcomes, and most importantly be very proactive in dealing with our clients. Many of our clients are on 24/7 contracts – this will, at times, require you to be available after hours to take escalation phone calls.
