Your work is visible in the city and the organization!
A new residential area in Hoorn? The maintenance of roads and greenery in Hoorn? Want to ensure that the digital workplace runs like a charm so that your colleagues can do their work without any problems? Today you are working on guest use in M365, tomorrow on Secure Mail and settings in Adobe, and oh yes, you also have to quickly call a supplier to schedule a consultation.

As a functional application manager, you help to make this possible. Many colleagues, residents and entrepreneurs depend on well-functioning applications. And that is exactly where you make the difference. You speak the user’s language and ensure that the applications meet their needs.

  • You support colleagues in the executive teams with the use of various applications.

Working together gives you energy and you don’t wait, but tackle things proactively. You have strong oral and written skills and you want to achieve great results by setting up applications and information systems. You find it fun and important to develop yourself further.

You do this with helpfulness, patience and good communication skills. It gives you energy to help your colleagues professionally. You keep your agreements, set priorities and are able to manage expectations.
