A well established and dynamic company is looking for the Head of Systems & Data to join their team. If you are looking to grow your career further in an inclusive and welcoming environment, this may be the right role for you. You will work for an employer who looks after their staff and, in this role, you will make a difference!

If you have strong Data experience, this may be the right role for you (please note this is not a typical IT role albeit you will need to have a strong DATA & SYSTEMS experience).

As Head of Systems & Data you'll lead and deliver major, strategic programmes within our project management framework to meet the agreed budget, timescales and customer specification. Leading the definition of programme scope, goals and deliverables and producing the programme initiation document, you'll direct the planning of projects and work streams within the programme, ensuring the tasks and resources required are identified and each produces a comprehensive project plan establishing project timelines, dependencies and critical paths. Other key accountabilities include:

  • ensuring the delivery of third party suppliers is aligned to programme requirement
  • defining and implementing programme controls and governance
  • leading on stakeholder engagement.

With a degree level qualification related to strong competence in structured and rigorous working methods, in addition to a recognised programme management accreditation or business change management qualification, you're a pragmatic problem-solver with effective influencing and communication skills. A background and qualification in technical IT service management (ITIL) would be an advantage. Your grasp of lean principles will enable you to understand opportunities for improvement, with data analysis skills to address root causes and promote right-first-time. With a proven track record driving forward transformational change to business systems, you can also offer:

  • experience of Oracle EDQ or similar
  • skills in driving data improvement initiatives
  • experience leading cross-functional/virtual teams
