The Role

Our Managed Implementations teams are responsible for implementing the Employment Hero platform with customers and partners. Recently customer research, along with team and customer feedback, has shown we have need to review the way our managed implementations team provide services in order to meet customer expectations and increase employee happiness. As such we are looking for an experienced person to lead our Managed Implementations teams to better consult with and educate our small to medium business customers to ensure their managed implementation is completed in a timely manner, and allows their businesses to fully configure, roll out and optimise the platform for their business needs.

This role requires an individual with proven leadership of project management and implementation teams within a SaaS environment including scoping, implementation, education and adoption. This includes leading the end-to-end redesign of how we deliver our manage implementations offering; and the preparation of customer presentations, configurations, budgetary proposals, and detailed Statement of Work documents.

In order to meet our growth needs Employment Hero utilises managed implementation partners to take project overflow, and this role will include driving our partners to the same standards and processes you develop for the internal managed teams, to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction. This may include assessing, negotiating MSA’s and onboarding new implementations partners over time, therefore, commercial experience is essential.

This role will also collaborate closely with our sales team and solutions consultants to ensure we successfully enable our sales team, by providing them with the critical collateral and education to understand and sell this solution to customers.

This is an exciting time to join the team and be part of transformative change in the way we help customers implement our platform. Experience in a fast paced or start up environment will be highly regarded.

  • You will need to be commercially astute and understand how to drive commercial outcomes via service excellence, operational improvement & negotiation.
  • Manage our implementations overflow parters including vendor management, contract creation & negotiations.
  • This is a new role within a new team structure and as such, there may be additional responsibilities and ways of managing our partner teams. To be successful you will need to be being comfortable working with ambiguity and understand we are in a period of high change, by leading from the front.
