I am looking for part time, casual or contract work in the Central Alberta area. Prefer Red Deer/Lacombe but will consider Edmonton & Calgary, especially if work from home is an option. Please contact me for rates.
 
My ideal situation would be to work remotely from my home base using vpn or another trusted service, however I understand that on site, face to face contact is required at the start of a project to build confidence and trust, and that on-site work is especially required for the go-live support phase. If remote work is considered, I could reduce my rate appropriately for that period to reflect the travel savings.

 

My experience includes 16 years of working with SAP, most recently with a multi-national chemicals company. I am fully versed in translating strategic and functional business requirements into SAP Payroll &/or Time configuration. I have an excellent comprehension of Personnel Admin. & Personnel Development, Org Mgmt, etc. I also have experience with; Security, LSMW Workbench, HR Query, transaction SE16, Debug, Archiving, Setting up re-occurring Jobs etc. and have led several customizing projects.

I have successfully implemented time management for several collective bargaining units in the US, Canada and Europe and have implemented time for non-union exempt and non-exempt progression employees. I am experienced setting up Time Wage Types and custom rules within schemas and am aware of how different companies have differing needs contrasting ease of use and low maintenance cost vs strict controls.

I recently participated in the implementation of Multi Resource Scheduling on version SAP 6.0 just prior to implementing Enhancement Pack 4. This included HR configuration, job set-up and testing.

I participated in the set-up of a customized Stock option granting & tracking system within SAP and worked with various Business clients & developers to develop and test the system. This included substantial process development and understanding prior to configuration.

I configured payroll and time requirements with the local business analyst. I have worked both directly with payroll and remotely via long distance communication.

I have created both technical and end-user documentation on process and configuration.

In all my previous work experience, I was granted top level security clearance as it pertained to operations, payroll, financial and relevant systems.
