About the role

Why automate manual, repeatable tasks?

Taking them away from people frees them up to focus on more engaging work. Less stress and more time means better work. Processes can still run well in the background. Customers will continually receive a great experience.

Right now, there’s a bank of repetitive work and processes building up. This could be where your automation script-writing and RPA expertise comes into play.

Fancy developing a bot that’ll give new purpose to people’s work?

What the role will involve

As the RPA specialist, you’re playing that busy, important role between analysing and designing - and building and supporting automated processes. In short, it’s about identifying and measuring rule-based processes your bot will gladly welcome with open arms.

You’re the person who’s known for creating essential design documents that capture the current and target state process. The individual who writes and configures the programs that accurately mimic manual tasks performed by your colleagues. You’re the one people remember for relieving them of their grunt work.

You're building, testing and rewriting scripts so your bot can plug into existing business software and talk with it. Picture Excel macros on red bull and you’re on the right track.

You know how to make it easier for your robot to interpret and optimise a process before automating it. Then it’s about continually optimising those automated processes.

The possibilities to free up people are vast. Think of some of the manual tasks people get bogged down with. Ticket-logging. The lifting and shifting of emails. Populating those emails into spreadsheets. Monitoring mailboxes. Never a dull moment shall pass their desks again.

In your role, you’ll also be monitoring run-times, performing User Acceptance Testing (UAT) and spotting other opportunities that’ll free up your fellow workers.

To get there, you know you'll have to gather reoccurring questions people will ask. Then fine-tune the answers your bot may not be able to grasp on its first attempt. Running workshops to capture those Q&As will help you identify, prioritise and recommend the automated processes.

Why might you consider this opportunity?

At Water Corporation, you’ve a number of opportunities in front of you. Whether that’s moving into a future strategic role, business process improvement / continuous improvement or even innovation, you can play a significant part in influencing the strategic direction of a growing business.

You’ve got access to a stack of tools here to help you perform your work to a high level. You’d be joining a friendly, growing team packed with expertise. If learning’s your thing, you won’t be short of opportunities to develop your knowledge.

Finally, wouldn’t you want to christen the bot you’ve just programmed?

Skills and experience required

Your Object Oriented programming experience, along with exposure to RPA software / tools (Automation Anywhere, UIPath, BluePrisim or helpSystems) will put you in good stead for this role.

It’ll be your exposure to ITIL Service Management Framework and your well-developed analysis, data integration and application support skills that’ll see you hit the ground running.

Additionally, your experience in running Robotic Process Automation solutions across legacy applications, enterprise applications (SAP) and cloud applications (Salesforce) will be well received.
