Life in this team is about consolidating. And innovating.
In a large, international business like ours, it’s perhaps no surprise that our IT Services and Operations have been quite disparate. We’ve made numerous acquisitions over the years, and we’re home to different brands running out of lots of different countries. This meant there was no single IT Services and Operations strategy. Until now.
Our transformation programme is all about streamlining our business – in every sense, and IT is a central part of that.
Responsible for the end-to-end IT processes across the business, in IT Services and Operations we’re not only bringing various teams in-house, we’re also consolidating our existing teams so that everyone is working as one. That doesn’t mean we won’t have IT teams overseas. It’s just that from supplier management to our IT Service Centre, everyone will be using the same systems, processes and technology as part of an integrated, virtual team. Even more importantly, everyone will be working to the same goal – this is about enabling our customers and our staff to be able to connect to our systems anywhere, anytime, anyhow.
For you, it means the chance to get in at a ground level and to play a leading role in the growth and change that we’re implementing within the division, IT and the wider business. You’ll be helping to shape a group-based culture that’s about collaboration, removing duplication and sharing best practice. All of which means you’re going to be in for a real learning experience.
We’ve already made a huge amount of progress, but there’s still a lot more that we need to do. That means we’re looking for people who want to get involved. You’ll be happy to roll your sleeves up and throw yourself into new and different challenges.
You’ll be someone who doesn’t believe in giving up, and you’ll be passionate about putting your own stamp on a very fast moving transformation programme.
Why join us?
“This really is a great opportunity – you’ll have the opportunity to grow, to learn, to upskill. You’re going to be part of an organisation that has a virtual environment so you’ll be sharing ideas with, and learning from, people across Europe. The cultural diversity here is a real asset and there are just so many opportunities for people to come in and learn, develop and grow their careers with us.”
