About Our Client
The Shilla Duty Free is a progressive and fast growing travel retailer who have built a strong following through their merchandise offering across brands in fashion, jewellery, cosmetics, perfumes and watches. Their first store was opened in Seoul, Korea in 1985 and more recently they have significantly expanded their international division, across Singapore, Thailand and now Hong Kong. They will launch their Hong Kong stores across beauty and fashion at HK International Airport in December and have just commenced hiring for their core leadership team to join between June to August.
Reporting to the IT Director at the headquarters, you will spearhead the set-up, maintenance and optimisation of IT operations in Hong Kong. Working closely with the Merchandising, Marketing, Operations and HR departments, you will partner and collaborate with the Headquarters's IT division to tailor IT tools according to their business needs and provide technical support to both back office and stores. As the team head in Hong Kong, you will develop and review IT strategies and policies, governance and compliance guidelines as well as standards and contingency plans to reduce business risks whilst setting up new technologies and systems in line with company's needs. You will provide quality service to end users in requirement analysis, solution recommendation, system implementation & training and post-installation support and ensure all expenses are within budget. The key focus will be in SAP and POS systems, where you will gather internal requirements and communicate this to vendors whilst following up closely on system design documents, process flow, testing and solution provision throughout the whole project cycle. Retail systems application support and management will be part of the role after project roll out, and you will continuously support the MD and other department heads by providing key business data through the use of reporting tools. In the long run, you will train and motivate subordinates to ensure outstanding performance of the IT Department.
The Successful Applicant
To qualify, you will be a Degree holder in Computer Science or other related disciplines with a minimum of 5 years of experience in IT managerial role and experience in ERP projects (i.e. SAP) preferably within the retail business. Candidates must have a strong track record in implementing and managing SAP and POS systems, thus the preferable candidate must be familiar with SAP systems as well as other digital/mobile platforms. As this is a newly set up role with tight project delivery time line in place, you will be self-motivated and results driven with strong analytic skills and a decisive mindset in order to carry out quality project delivery at a timely manner. Given the company's multinational working environment, you will possess excellent communication, people and stakeholder management skills as well as the ability to work independently and converse well in English and Mandarin. This is an individual contributor role at the start but will require leadership skills as the team grows according to the business's expansion plans.
