Director - Infrastructure - Investment Banking

[Director of Infrastructure, Infrastructure Director, Head of Infrastructure, Infrastructure Manager, Systems Integration, Engineering, Investment Banking, Financial Services]

A medium-large sized global investment bank are looking for a technically astute director level infrastructure candidate.

As a firm, they have been growing steadily across the globe in recent years, and have ambitious plans to tackle the biggest players, with their core underlying business strategy completely underlined by technology. This hire will find themselves in a bank that is small enough to get their arms around, but big enough to matter in the global financial services industry.

The role will see the individual working with some of the most senior managers in the firm, driving projects and programmes across the globe, and overseeing infrastructure across all towers, everything from hosting, to comms, to end user, etc.

They have some major initiatives that this hire will be very heavily involved with. In one area alone they are currently investing half a billion dollars in their business platform - they are investing in really smart, forward thinking technology that matters to the business and makes a difference to that business.

Essential experience:

  • Extensive experience leading systems integration / engineering teams
  • Experience of overseeing pan-continental or global infrastructure change programmes - e.g. global rollouts of large infra systems, large infra portfolios
  • A depth AND breadth of infrastructure knowledge - this will be the most technical role at this level within the firm
  • Someone from a hands-on infrastructure engineering background
  • Someone who can innovate - e.g. experience in AI / process robotics / automation
  • Beneficial but NOT essential: investment banking / financial services experience
