My client, a leading global financial markets infrastructure organisation, is seeking an Application Support Manager/Lead to join their London based office on a permanent basis. You will be taking over and running the Support function (circa 7 resources) for their Credit Derivatives business as the team looks to expand into markets across the globe.

You will be leading the evolution of the IT support function into a global team, supporting a hybrid application architecture deployed on premise and in the Cloud (AWS) and building out the team in line with expansion plans. Further to this, you will be running essential processes including incident and problem management, remediation and automation, and supporting change management within the product line. Although this role won’t be hands on, you will need to have a technical background in supporting applications to run on UNIX, in order to bridge the skills gap between the business and your team.

The ideal candidate will be:
  • Proven experience as an IT Support Manager/Lead in a regulated Financial Services environment
  • Technical team management experience (3+ Resources minimum)
  • Experience supporting applications (preferably Java) on a UNIX infrastructure
  • Oracle Database experience would be highly beneficial
  • Significant architecture and technology support across the Financial Services
  • Demonstrated experience and ability in managing time critical incident and recovery situations
  • Excellent stakeholder management
  • Any experience in OTC Derivatives / Clearing / Credit would be beneficial but not necessary
This is an excellent opportunity to take on the management of a team at a pivotal point of change, giving you the opportunity to shape the direction of the support function as it continues its impressive expansion.
