Full Time
Programme Manager, Strategy Lead, Cross Functional Projects, Strategic Business/Ops Change, Technology Change, Shared Services, Stakeholder Management, Investment Banking

My client, a Tier 1 global Investment Bank, is looking to add to their senior level Strategic Programme Management Team. In this role, you will be responsible for strategically shaping and leading programmes which impact the entire organisation's Target Operating Model. You will work closely with MD level stakeholders and strategic heads to assess the impact of proposed programmes on all areas of the business globally, ensuring that practical solutions are proposed and delivered across the board. The role covers the entirety of Shared Services and requires a senior level candidate who has broad based project and programme experience across the Investment Banking spectrum. Please note that this is not a Project Delivery focussed role. It is however essential that you understand delivery plans so that you can assist with handing over to Delivery teams. To be successful in this role you will need:

- Detailed Project and Programme Management background gained across multiple Shared Services Investment Banking functions

- Detailed understanding of how Investment Banks operate front to back, with a clear idea how different areas are impacted by Change programmes

- Strong background working in a similar Strategic Change focussed role, providing consulting and management for top priority projects across a large organisation

- Proven ability to form, develop and present credible ideas to senior management

- Extensive stakeholder management skills- proven ability to advise and influence MD level senior management and prioritise deliverables

- Ability to lead cross functional teams

- Strong understanding of programmes from a holistic as opposed to delivery perspective

This role will provide the right person with an opportunity to influence the strategic direction of the entire global organisation. As such, to be successful here you must be the type of person who is decisive, credible and able to operate effectively at a very senior level in a high pressure, ever changing environment.
