My client is leading Chinese financial services group with a global footprint. They are investing heavily into fintech, both regionally and globally, and are seeking a senior project manager who can help identify and lead fintech focused projects.

The role:

As a fintech enabler you will be involved both with directing the bank's strategy in relation to fintech adoption and leading related implementation projects.

Reporting directly to one of the bank's most senior executives you will work to identify technology focused opportunities that will make a positive impact on the bank's products and performance.

Once identified you will take ownership of the projects from initiation to closure. This will include identifying and assembling teams and resources and overseeing delivery and implementation.

You will need to be proactive in keeping abreast of industry developments around relevant technologies and regulations and may involve identifying opportunities for third party collaboration where relevant. Understanding of mobile banking applications and AI would be particularly useful in this regard.

Requirements:

At least 5 years working in financial services, technology or management consulting.

You must be able to demonstrate a sound knowledge of the banking industry regionally and globally.

Whilst it is not essential to be a hands-on technologist you will be familiar with all relevant technologies and able to articulate, to senior stakeholders, both business and technology use cases and potential benefits.

Fluent Mandarin is essential for this role. A minimum of business level Cantonese and English would be very highly regarded.
