My client a Top Tier BIG 4 Consulting firm are currently very much in "growth" phase for their practice due to increased demand with a number of their IB Clients. Their current focus is Reg Reform, F2B Strategic business change but recent demand has increased within the technology space and they are now seeking a practice leader to drive this forward



Given the level/responsibility this role has; it is expected you would have a wealth of experience in management consulting/BIG 4 within the capital markets space and in tune with the current market demand around structural reform, regulation, efficiency and data quality.

Furthermore, it is also expected you have a strong track record of delivery with a real appreciation of how to make technology "effective" in a bank. This can be around implementing agile methodologies, through to having a conversation with a CIO around their 3/4 top priorities.

This role will cover Digital, Data Analytics, CIO type change and application transformation and will involve two types of key agendas:

1 - project based work; where there is transformation with a tech element. eg a requirement to deliver a system to X bank on transaction reporting for Dodd Frank and a new reporting platform needs to be implemented (this is where 75% of the work comes from).

2 - how to make Technology more effective - essentially CIO change. This will involve looking at making an organisation more agile or making IT processes more lean.

The content of these initiatives are predominantly around regulation, finance, risk and data re-engineering.

It is expected you have  solid capital markets experience - familiar with F2B IB processes and the systems/architecture that exist to navigate yourself effectively in this environment. You also needs to be fluid and comfortable in the above type of engagements.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a top tier consulting firm and play a pivotal function in the drive/development of an IT advisory practice in the capital markets space.
