Edison Hill Search has been retained by our client, a prestigious and well established mutual friendly society located on the borders with South London & Kent.

Due to continued growth & success, they now require the services of a proven Head of Technology to help build on the Technology strategy in liaison with the Chief Operating Officer to help them achieve the next stages of their exciting growth plans.

You will directly manage a team of three, made up of a Developer, Business Analyst and Support person. The team will be adding additional developers to its numbers in order to deliver their financial products & services to its members, utilising groundbreaking technology and processes. This will give you the chance to demonstrate your team leading/management skills as well as implementing the recruitment strategy for onboarding new team members.

Your Project Management skills will also be heavily utilised in order to ensure all projects, predominantly development focussed, are delivered on time and to budget and will require you liaising with both internal and external stakeholders.

The Society's relationship with their 3rd party IT vendors is critical to their smooth-running operation and the experience that both internal users and members have of this service. The relationship with all 3rd party vendors will fall within your remit and you will be expected to manage this directly and to make any suitable recommendations for improvement that you see fit.

The organisation is proud of its friendly work environment and culture, with impressive staff retention rates. Your attitude and fit in this type of culture are vital, and although this is a senior leadership role there may be times when you'd be expected to grab a keyboard to help out writing code, or even getting on all fours to run cable under desks.

In addition to a wonderful career opportunity, my client is paying a competitive basic salary plus a full benefits package and flexible working options.

In the first instance please apply to request a full job description, including your CV and any relevant supporting documentation. 

For your peace of mind, all initial interviews will be conducted remotely over the phone and video.
