Do you always wanted to work for an international organization that is in an enormous transition phase in both with regard to the global energy transition and the streamlining of global processes and its data? Apply now for the role as Global Master Data Steward at BDR Thermea.

Over de functie

Good Master Data Management is a prerequisite for reliable reporting and effective decision-making, by ensuring that there is ‘one version of the truth’. The MDM department is relatively new to BDR Thermea, so you will be the co-founder of this department and all that it stands for. This means that initially there will be a large focus on setting up the department within the organization and continuously improving the role of Global Master Data Steward. In the coming years we will have a close connection with an ERP implementation program and the corresponding data migration activities. Structurally, you will support the business with the implementation of global master data standards and monitor these on a regular basis. Your specialization will be master data related to customers and vendors. All this is done in close collaboration with the data owners and the business process owners from different domains within different countries. The data owners are accountable for data quality and for ensuring the implementation of standards within their domains. Since this is a global role, it requires continuous alignment and communication with stakeholders throughout the organization, spread across different countries. This role will therefore require a multicultural mind-set and occasional visits to locations in other countries to remain aligned. Lastly, there is also a strong link with the Business Intelligence team, where the improved business insights are captured.

You will be responsible for:

  • Building and reviewing data quality metrics based on business requirements
  • Initiating actions to improve data quality
  • Ensuring data is understood, used and shared effectively
  • Assessing the impact of changes with regard to standards or processes
  • Making root cause analyses in case of data quality issues
  • As part of data stewardship: supporting data owners/business process owners with resolving data quality issues
  • Developing, maintaining and enforcing Master Data Management standards, in line with the MDM governance model
