This is one of those rare IT leadership opportunites with a clear route to becoming a CTO in the next 3-5 years (provided you do a good job in this role of course!) Based in Central London we are hiring a Group Head of Technology Applications to play a pivotal role in helping the transformation of a global business with a really interesting story to tell.
They are ambitious and entrepeneurial...so much so they are planning to double the size of the business in the next 5 years. Delivery of a 1st class technology estate is going to be crucial to achieving this and you'll be given all the backing neccesary to achieve success. There is private equity involved to provide the liquidity and extra drive needed to get this massive project underway.
A big part of this is needing to build a team and help your reports build theirs, different for a global organisation right? There is a back story, I'll explain when we talk.
Remuneration, lets deal with it head on. The base will be circa £100-120,000 with a bonus and benefits package on top.
So what are the key features of the role?
-Developing key relationships with ExCo to understand and contribute to domain and business strategies.
-Developing an overarching and future focused architecture and strategy for the applications portfolio.
-Establishing robust investment plans for the development and deployment of the applications estate.
-Developing a set of application roadmaps covering all business areas and ensure that the applications portfolio address user requirements.
-Developing a global applications operating model and a team to design, deploy and support it. You'll be the first on the ground and be able to select your team.
-Moving a the business to a shared services model with a technology services catalogue
What you'll need to be successful as the Group Head of Technology Applications:
-Experience leading a global technology team.
-A successful track record in technology applications design, development and operations.
