Advice from a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Consultant – What do UK employers want?

6 August 2019

The job market for Microsoft Dynamics 365 roles in the UK is full of opportunity for those who know how to grab hold of it. That said, the UK Dynamics 365 landscape is full of talent, so how can candidates differentiate themselves? One way is to know exactly what employers are looking for. Our Microsoft Dynamics 365 consultant team can help.

How should grads be preparing for the requirements of Dynamics 365 employers in the UK?

LinkedIn is a fantastic place to start if you don’t have anything. More than anything, it’s a great community tool where you can talk to like-minded individuals and share ideas. It’s also worth noting that it’s one of the primary places that prospective employers—and recruitment consultants like Conspicuous Recruitment—will be looking for their next wave of talent. So, it’s best to keep your LinkedIn profile as updated as possible. 

Developing your T-shaped skills is also valuable to a potential employer. Candidates with “T-shaped” skill sets can be assumed to have skills in one area to a reasonable amount of depth, while they are also capable of understanding a broad range of ideas and communicating with people in a number of different fields. In other words, deep, specific experience bolstered by a collaborative mind set. 

A further industry trend that Dynamics 365 employers in the UK are looking for is the ability for a candidate to work from end to end. In other words, from concept to execution and delivery. This will be especially helpful if you’re going to be working in a scrum formation. 

Once you get an interview, make sure you have a list of questions lined up to ask your interviewer. This is one of the biggest areas where you can show a little bit of differentiation vs other candidates. At the end of your interview, it’s about 95% likely that you’ll be asked if you have any questions, and while you might have one or two lined up from the interview itself, thinking on the spot under pressure is always challenging. Therefore, having a store of 10 questions prepared means you’ll be able to ask a couple of them at the end of the interview.
