The M&C Saatchi UK group implemented NetSuite in January 2018 across the UK group, and have continued to roll this ERP out across our agencies globally. Implementations are continuing throughout 2021 across Asia and Europe, leading to an increased demand for technical development skills within the Systems Team.

Our NetSuite instance is highly customised, to support complex business requirements, and is used by over 1,500 users globally. Several integrations have already been set up, with more currently being planned.

  • Investigate and support planned and potential future roll-outs to overseas divisions, supporting their additional requirements
  • Owning ad hoc development projects, and assisting with technical experience on functional projects
  • Apply best practices and coding standards to new and pre-existing scripts and solutions
