Vice President /Senior Vice President, Head of Network Programme Management

Singapore, , Singapore

Job Description:

Your background

Coming from a technical background, you will be well-versed in running large infrastructure deployment projects – sometimes several at the same time. You have a drive for getting things done, some may say an impatience, and are known for leaving nothing to chance - spotting unknown dependencies and proactively circumventing issues before they arise.

You have a creative mindset and are not hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities, being able to identify and prioritise business and operational needs. You are great at communicating and influencing – selling a vision, gaining support and where needed rolling up your sleeves and digging in.

You will have led teams previously, ideally remote teams, and enjoy contributing to the teams development and success. You appreciate the need for reporting but will do anything to ensure it’s as automated and as burden-free on the team as possible.

And finally, you enjoy the challenging rigors of working in a highly regulated environment and helping out your peers - not being phased if asked to lead our Operations or Engineering teams for a short period.

  • Extensive experience in Infrastructure Project / Programme Management with a technical background

  • 15 years work experience required (less if you are a superstar).

  • Expertise in delivering large programmes of work spanning several technical teams and lines of business.

  • Strong business partnership skills – Able to build broad-based business relationships across the organization and positively influence colleagues.

  • Identify, Escalate, Debate issues that come into the team not limited to resource constraints, risk items, schedule conflicts and competing priorities.

  • Familiar with product deployments within a global banking environment

  • Willing to work some irregular hours based on the location of clients

  • Comfortable working independently in a collaborative organizational structure with the freedom to speak your mind

  • Unhappy with laborious manual processes and procedures, always looking for opportunities to drive efficiencies
