    Kerry is responding to consumer demand for real ingredients with better, more authentic and nutritious taste experiences. With 40 years’ experience and 24,000 staff on six continents, Kerry has a renewed focus on Taste & Nutrition where the science of taste merges with the science of nutrition. We combine our deep understanding of taste with our in-depth knowledge of people, culture, life stage and daily nutritional needs. By partnering with Kerry, customers are taken on a journey to make food, beverage and pharma products that people enjoy and feel better about. We call this Leading to Better.


    We are looking for people with ambition, vision and a commitment to excellence in a dynamic business environment to achieve and sustain this growth on a long-term basis. In return we offer stimulating and rewarding careers from employee to management to leadership levels in a global food organisation.




    Description and Responsibilities

    We currently have an opportunity for a Business Analyst to join the Optiva team for the Kerryconnect rollout in North America based out of Beloit. The global template has been rolled out across our R&D facilities in Europe and APMEA. The rollout to Latin America will complete in 2018.


    This role will focus on the remaining deployment activity of the Kerryconnect template to sites across North America. The candidate will work with the future users of this application across North America to help identify and close any gaps between their requirements and the template. The candidate will also work with the users in testing any enhancements required, and to ensure that all of the data required by the template is successfully migrated from their old system.


    There will also be a number of Business Excellence projects and enhancements to implement as we continue the drive to maximize business benefit in live sites. These projects will come from across the globe as the solution is a global template.


    This is an excellent opportunity for a driven and motivated person to work with great people and to apply their knowledge and expertise in a dynamic project environment.
