2022 In-Demand SAP Skills | Nicholas Bernard Ltd

As a specialist SAP Recruitment Consultancy, we’re seeing a large demand for SAP skills across the globe. This has been further increased by the upcoming deadline for organisations to transition from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA by early 2025, therefore causing a demand for SAP consultants worldwide. 

What are the most in-demand SAP skills in 2022?

At Nicholas Bernard Ltd, we provide consultants to clients of all industries. We’ve seen an increase in the number of highly experienced consultants clients are looking for, especially those who have previously undergone a number of full implementations.

Furthermore, we’re seeing an increase in both leadership and change management consultants. This is down to the number of new implementations across SAP, which is requiring change management, organisational change, and more leadership consultants to support the transitions. 

Hands-on consultants in SAP Data and Architecture are also in high demand, as well as the need for great support staff and PMOs. 

How can SAP Consultants build on their profiles?

It’s clear to say that those with SAP skills will be highly sought after by clients across the globe. But to future-proof your SAP consultancy career, we’re sharing some key skills SAP consultants should gain this coming year:

Build a Diverse Client Portfolio.

As companies continue to find new ways to migrate from ECC to S/4 HANA, it’s crucial to have a diverse portfolio of clients to ensure you’re able to work across a variety of industries. This will show your versatility and will also put you in a strong position to land regular contracts. 

Keep Learning.

Although many organisations are looking for seasoned SAP professionals with experience undergoing a number of implementations, it shouldn’t stop a first-time S/4 HANA Consultant to keep learning. SAP offer numerous courses through their learning hub which will help you learn on and off the job, therefore putting you one step ahead of your competitors.

Share Your Knowledge.

Whether it’s internally within your company or online through your personal blog / LinkedIn, it’s important to keep sharing your SAP knowledge. This will not only boost your reputation and see you achieve promotions, but will also help to improve your personal brand and recognition within the SAP industry. Furthermore, helping others gain key skills within SAP will also reduce the imbalance of supply and demand within the industry.
