You would be part of the leadership team within the group to enable software projects are effectively developed and delivered. Your leadership will promote continuous improvement of auditable processes and working practices and help shape the strategy and roadmap for digital products.

  • You’ll have a full appreciation and good understanding of the software development lifecycle, ideally for cloud applications.
  • You’ll have experience of line management of junior and senior software engineers, and possibly other disciplines.

In return, an excellent remunerations package is available including substantial benefits. For qualifying candidates, relocation assistance is available. Hybrid working is also possible with a few days per week in the office expected. The company looks to support careers and promotes diversity in the workplace.
