The Head of Solution Delivery is an exciting opportunity to join a strong and successful company that continues to grow. Still passionately led from the front by our founder Andy Bell, we’re innovative, fast-paced and able to make decisions quickly. We are offering an exciting and challenging long-term career in return for the fresh perspective, ideas and valuable experience you will add to the AJ Bell and Technology Services management teams.

Our guiding principles tell you everything about us. When it comes to technology and propositional change that is especially true of “Energetic – we never stand still”.

Having come through a transformational period of significant technology change, our focus has returned fully to our core ambitions of rapid but managed growth and providing innovative solutions for investors.

Our financial results speak for themselves. Having seen consistent and significant growth over many years, we are looking to the future and finding ways to increase our rate of growth. You will help us to achieve our ambitions, removing technology shackles through ongoing stability, ever-increasing automation and value-add change.

To ensure we remain Energetic, you will drive a sense of urgency in all things and actively embrace and support our focus on building a true culture of innovation.

As the ideal candidate, you will have a strong background in technical excellence, allowing you to coach and guide the existing team. To us that means a minimum of 5, but preferably 7+ years’ experience of implementing and running Agile, coupled with a long background of IT technical/development roles. However, this is simply the foundation needed to do the job, not the narrow focus of the role.

This is more than just a technology role. We need someone ambitious enough to work within the existing regime but not be constrained by it. You will be driven to take the opportunity to influence how we achieve our ambitious drive to grow the business and, importantly, grow with it.

Working closely with the Technology Services Director, you will deputise where appropriate from day one and have the attitude, aptitude and ambition to expand your remit over time.

Naturally your pay, bonus and share scheme opportunities will be commensurate with your experience and potential, and reflective of the both the demands of the role and increasing remit over time.
