    Responsibilities

    Key responsibilities

    • Serve as "front of house" for the COE, acting as relationship manager for relevant development teams, with an internal consulting pre-sales mindset to ensure that client needs are understood and satisfied.

    • Building and maintaining strong relationships with internal delivery partners, establishing credibility and trust as a trusted advisor

    • Manage a team of Enablement Partners at senior associate level in accordance with the company frameworks and values.

    • Understanding the unique requirements of application teams in the lines of business with which you and your team will interact

    • Assessing teams' specific skills, maturity & needs, and recommending ways in which the CoE's assessments, processes and services can be improved to better serve the CoE's customers

    • Guiding teams to relevant content in the CoE Knowledge Base, ensuring that the best material developed by application teams with which you work is made available to the wider community

    • Ensure internal customers are able to access specialist advice, services and products from the COE, and external specialist vendors in support of their migration plans or overall DevOps and SLDC execution maturity

    • Ensuring that the Enablement Partner team captures sufficient data about its customer interactions to be able to measure the success of the team and its customers, contributing to enterprise level performance metric data.

    • Nurture CoE community and fostering peer-to-peer interaction by encouraging contacts to participate in CoE events and groups

    Critical deliverables

    The role is responsible for delivery of the following:

    • Establishing new work reception processes and triage activity is in place for COE operations

    • Generation of coherent transformation roadmaps and resource requirements in support of application migration and COE product adoption projects

    • Facilitate the governance bodies that will oversee the unit spend and cross charging of efforts to investment pots held by application teams

    • Management of demand pipelines from internal customers into the various services that the COE offers, to ensure that support is available to application teams at the right times

    • Act as an advocate for the development team, working to understand and mitigate challenges and gaps with regards to all aspects of the COE processes

    • Producing regular and ad hoc reports covering the COE execution, benefit realisation and financial position

    Impact

    In recognition of our IT Strategic focus themes (Agility, Resiliency, Efficiency and Cyber improvement) and in support of the Cloud adoption agenda, it has been necessary to mobilise the Cloud & Technology Centre of Enablement.

    It is recognised that 60% of our data centre assets should migrate to Public Cloud over the next 3 years. In doing so, we are asking hundreds of development teams across the Group to learn new skills in building and operating non-production and production cloud infrastructure under a different operating model.

    The Centre of Enablement is primarily about giving development teams the necessarily knowledge and skills to execute. Alongside their day-to-day deliverables to the lines of business they support, application teams are accountable for delivering against several Group-wide transformation projects. To deliver on their commitments, application teams will need to navigate the organisation and up-skill in a number of different areas. The CoE seeks to be the "one stop shop" for application team support in transformation work.

    And CoE is also about reducing the risk of transformation. By getting things right early in the design and build cycles and using standardised approaches to the similar problems, we can avoid the need for risk acceptance of operational or cyber issues discovered late in the project and avoid solution fragmentation that then manifests itself in complexity in other parts of the organisation.

    CoE recognises that different application teams will need different levels of transformation support. The CoE will provide various services - from "no touch" services, for teams that feel confident in their skills and capacity but need guidance on navigating the organization - through to "high touch" services, where skills and capacity are needed for successful execution. Application teams will be assessed against a standardised industry "maturity" benchmark. This will help teams in planning their transformation efforts.

    It is necessary to co-ordinate the engagement and interactions between development teams, Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), specialist vendor resources and the COE groups internal services. Enablement partners will align with divisions as "first port of call" for teams to seek help, to establish COE demand pipelines and create transformation Roadmaps.

    Specialist Cloud vendors will be managed as a select panel to better respond to demand pipelines, with favourable commercial terms. A streamlined onboarding experience will be established to accelerate contracts and mobilisation. Vendor resources will undertake a pre-onboarding orientation and certification program so that high quality resources are effective on day 1 (reducing wasted time/spend) and monitoring performance to recycle the best resources.

    Business and sector expertise

    • Experience in financial industry/services highly beneficial
    • Programme Management / Transformation experience highly beneficial

    Leadership and management experience

    • Experience in managing teams to achieve success through others, nurturing talent and supportive leadership behaviours
    • Strong communication, interpersonal and presentation skills
    • High degree of professional maturity when interacting with senior internal and stakeholders

    • An understanding of the benefits of modern SDLC approaches including Agile & SAFe and CI/CD
    • A customer-oriented mindset: an ability to advocate for customer requirements in conversations with peers and the wider Centre of Enablement team
