Our latest findings uncovered three ‘hidden gem’ locations with a greater amount of SAP SCM specialists in the region compared to the rest of Germany:
Rhein-Neckar Metropolitan Region
Greater Nuremberg Metropolitan Area
These competitive areas (in comparison to the quantity of nationwide job openings) may make it increasingly difficult for a SAP SCM specialist to find the perfect role through regular applications or their networks. A remote role or a role with travel may be best for someone living in these regions.
The locations currently experiencing a high amount of demand for SAP SCM specialists are:
Frankfurt Rhine-Main Metropolitan Area
Greater Hamburg Region
In light of our analysis, the fastest growing demand for SCM specialists is the Ruhr Region, with an 8% growth in demand over the last month.
The average SAP SCM specialists’ median tenure is 2.6 years which has decreased in relation to previous years. With newer urgent S/4HANA implementation projects and the subsequent following of businesses moving to more innovative platforms like S/4HANA Public Cloud, many Consultants are moving to more specialist enterprises with a specific S/4HANA roadmap, whose customers are engaging in larger IT transformations. With the extremely high demand for this skill set, new opportunities with greater salaries and benefits are attractive to SAP specialists exploring new roles.
