IT Operations. If they go down, the whole business sinks.

I'm looking for a captain of sorts. Someone who can take the helm and not only steer but also think about where to go, what to do and how to do it. Extra points to you if you're also able to make everyone a little less seasick on the way.

So, a bit about the role. It's extremely varied - no two days will be the same. It's also newly-created which is brilliant for a number of reasons:

- The ability to shape and fully define the role as you see fit
- No more "the person that was in this role before you did it this way"
- You won't have to spend the majority of your day doing bits of work that someone else hasn't done

You'll be trusted to create ways of working that truly benefit the business. This, coupled with improving current tech processes, means you'll be creating a brilliant working environment. The kind of place where nobody dreads coming in on a Monday.

From managing teams of genuinely talented people and developing strategies to building a transformation-focused culture, no two days will be the same. Taking risks will be absolutely necessary - if things don't work out, you can learn from it. It's all about that fall forward approach.

What kind of person am I looking for? Good question. It'd be really good if you had:

- Extensive IT Ops experience, particularly at a senior level
- Lots of management experience (including coaching/developing people)
- Strong understanding of data driven design and developing strategies that address/rectify user behaviours
- Experience implementing new systems, processes and patterns
- A track record in delivering IT and business change management process. Think LEAN, Kubler, Agile etc

There's a ton to this role and I really don't want to scare you off by listing a thousand "must haves". If you've read through those first few points and think "yeah, that's me", drop me an application and I'll take the time to read through your CV. From there, we can have a chat about the role and decide if it's going to be the right opportunity for you.

Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age.
