Job Description for SAP Consultant

SAP consultants analyze, design, and configure new computer software and systems in accordance with their employers’ or clients’ specifications, as well as write programs such as forms, specifications, and interfaces. They also test new interfaces to ensure that system workflows are optimized and interact with end-users to make changes as requested and obtain feedback.

Those in this position must be patient and flexible, as end-users regularly revise system requirements. They also perform data transfers from non-SAP systems to SAP and customize clients’ and employers’ systems in accordance with their system requirements. They generally test for all system errors to ensure total system integration, and they generally work under senior SAP consultants. Flexibility is important, as they may be required to travel or relocate to other places within or outside of the United States. Some may be responsible for training, coaching, and mentoring new or junior SAP consultants. All SAP consultants should constantly improve and update their technological skills by attending various workshops and classes at local colleges or universities and reading relevant journals.

A bachelor's degree in computer science, engineering, or a related field and relevant work experience are generally required for this position; however, some employers may accept candidates with a wealth of experience as computer software professionals in place of the degree requirement. Excellent oral and written communication skills, presentation skills, and the ability to work well in team environments are also important.
