This program is designed to remediate and modernise our IT Infrastructure, making it essential that you are a seasoned IT transformation programme manager with expertise in SaaS, Azure Cloud, Active Directory, VMWare, Security, and Network infrastructure. This is not your standard programme management role; comprehensive knowledge of IT domains is a key prerequisite, and familiarity with the Insurance industry is highly desirable.
You will collaborate with colleagues in IT Operations, Change Management, and Enterprise Architecture, making your ability to engage and communicate effectively paramount. 

Key Responsibilities:

  • Lead the planning and execution of the IT Transformation Programme, encompassing six projects/value streams related to areas like Cybersecurity, Network, Cloud, and IT Services.

  • Develop comprehensive project plans and associated communication documents.
  • Communicate project expectations clearly and promptly to team members and stakeholders.
  • Identify and manage project dependencies and critical paths.
  • Plan, schedule, and monitor project timelines, milestones, and deliverables using Azure DevOps.
  • Conduct sprint retrospectives and produce recommendations reports to identify successful and unsuccessful project elements.
  • Develop best practices and tools for effective project execution and management.

Required Skills & Experience:

  • Proven experience (10+ years) in IT project management, with expertise in Cloud, Cybersecurity, and IT Resiliency.
  • Proficiency in operating in a fast-paced, dynamic environment with tight deadlines.
  • Strong problem-solving skills, a commitment to accountability, and a results-oriented mindset.
  • Ability to coordinate multiple concurrent projects, minimizing disruptions, and taking prompt action.
  • Capability to delve deep into technical risks and issues faced by program delivery teams.
  • Skill in articulating challenges to Business sponsors, InfoSec, and Enterprise Architecture functions.
  • Proficiency in managing program delivery risks and communicating effective mitigation strategies.
  • Ability to drive delivery teams while fostering a culture of collaboration.
  • Hands-on experience with agile project management software tools, methodologies, and best practices.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Certifications such as PMP or PRINCE2 are highly desirable.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Information Systems, or a related field.

Beneficial Experience (but not essential):

  • Prior experience in the (re)insurance broking sector.
  • Previous work in a Lloyds London Market or other regulatory environment.
