You will be supporting the implementation - design through to deployment - for the initial pilot phase (estimated timeline 3 years) as we roll out the system in parallel for both the DBU Europe and Asia Pacific regions.

DBU is the focus of our customer interactions, with 7,000 service locations and 16,000 people around the world, it is the most diverse of all the Cummins' businesses.

  • Enjoy collaborating with a range of stakeholders, providing challenge when needed, working with a range of cultures, and adapting your style accordingly within a multi-national environment.

  • Have excellent systems knowledge, our main systems will be SAP, Oracle, ARIBA and Basware, so you will understand the flow of information from various interacting systems.

  • Enjoy working within a change environment, experience of a similar enterprise level change project would be hugely beneficial.

  • Have significant hands on experience across the P2P process, and exposure to operating within a multi-national environment.
