  • You will be responsible for ensuring business oversight, continuity, and integrity of our primary technical business platforms, internal and customer-facing.

As the team leader, you will recognise the benefits of contributing to the ongoing internal discussions on how our business continues to deliver the best possible product to our customers.
  • We have developed a technical model of insourcing intrinsic business systems & outsourcing non-core services to specialist suppliers (managed by our internal teams) which the successful candidate will have overall responsibility.

The successful applicant will be required to rapidly capture the current business dependencies and exigencies, ensuring our Technical Operations teams and systems are fully supported, resilient to current and future requirements.
  • You will be working with and managing an experienced team of specialists who will grow and develop under your leadership. You will be pivotal in maintaining and ensuring optimal business continuity while planning and managing change as we develop and align platforms.
