JDE Programmer


Recommended Posts

Hi there

I have been contacted by Carl Thomas [carl.thomas@apexrs.com.au] from apex for this roll but unfortunately I have only provided training for end users in JDE and do not have programming background ;)

In any case, if you are interested. He mentioned that they are not looking to sponsor someone (due to the recession) and look for someone already in Australia, but you may try your luck, you will never know. Just mention that I have indicated that no sponsorship is available.

Also, please be so kind as to indicate my name when you apply (Adri van Rensburg)

Thanks and good luck.
