ROLE SUMMARY: LSEG and Microsoft have entered an exciting strategic partnership for the development of next-generation data, analytics and cloud infrastructure solutions.

This will include Finance, People/HR, Procurement, Onboarding, Risk, Comms and, of course, the teams building the foundation landing zones and those working to migrate our application estate to the Azure cloud. Our programme leadership team comprises executives from both LSEG and Microsoft.
