Start a career at B&CE...

Are you a programme delivery expert looking for a rewarding career in a thriving organisation where people come first?

B&CE has been providing employee benefits for over 70 years. We began in 1942 by creating simple financial products that meet people’s needs, and that’s how we’ve run our business ever since.

We provide simple, good value products and services and our first class support and customer service has won awards.

We go that extra mile to ensure we are.

  • Creating Simplicity
  • Showing Compassion
  • Keeping Promises

Our people are our strength. Finding ways to value and reward them is important to us. And if you’re keen to learn, develop your career and do great things – you’re looking in the right place.

In a word

We’re looking for a Technical Portfolio Delivery Manager to join our growing IT department initially on a one-year basis. You’ll be responsible for the successful delivery of all IT led programmes/projects and IT the work streams of all Change initiatives supporting regulatory, tactical and strategic deliverables across the organisation.

Practically speaking

Reporting to the Head of Solutions Delivery, you’ll be responsible for:

  • Contributing to the development and application of B&CE’s change framework to define and deliver a portfolio of programs and/or projects that underpin B&CE’s 5-year business plan.
  • Identifying, scoping, planning, coordination, tracking and performance reporting of the IT program/project portfolio underpinning B&CE’s change portfolio.
  • Maintaining and communicating the current and future IT change portfolio within the IT department but also more broadly across the organisation
  • Developing and leading a high-performing IT project delivery team contributing to staff assessment and career progression
  • Managing the overall IT change budget and manage associated third-party resource deployed to any change initiative
  • Overseeing the testing and scheduling of change through the respective Testing and Release Management functions.

If you're right for this role

You’ll enjoy working within a solutions-driven, people-focused organisation.

You’ll have a can-do attitude and work well both independently and as part of a team and be aligned with our
values of Creating Simplicity, Keeping Promises and Showing Compassion.

  • Expert in programme delivery combining methodologies as appropriate
  • Expert knowledge of techniques for planning, monitoring and controlling programmes
  • Good knowledge of Continuous Improvement / Continuous Delivery and DevOps principles
  • Good knowledge of software development
  • Leading large cross-functional teams to deliver set objectives
  • Effective leadership, interpersonal and communication skills.

The perks

Our people are our strength so finding ways to value and reward them is important to us. That’s why we offer an award-winning pension – it’s what we’re good at – plus health care cover, an onsite gym, access to a personal trainer… even the odd massage. And if they’re feeling peckish after all that activity, they can always refuel in our subsidised restaurant or grab some fruit – we get a big delivery every week. Discover more of B&CE’s employee benefits including our training programme, which is designed to give our people the support they need to develop a fulfilling career.
