Fractional Chief Digital Information Officers – UK Digital Hub

 

What is the Agile Talent Community? 
The Agile Talent Community is a network of contract professionals given the opportunity to work with our clients on a project-by-project basis and provided with strong support and development opportunities offered by Grant Thornton. You’ll get the freedom and advice to work in a way that suits you, that is compliant, and be able to choose the projects you take on, allowing you the independence to manage your time more effectively. The Agile Talent Community reflects the same values that sit at the heart of Grant Thornton: a commitment to diversity and inclusion, a client centric, quality driven ethos and a fundamental care for our people and doing what’s right, ahead of what’s easy. 

 

Joining us in Central Client Services & UK Digital Hub Team

For our client facing teams to be successful it is important that we have an excellent support structure. Our Central Client Services teams comprise of skilled experts who can advise and support our business with their day-to-day needs.

 

We work collaboratively and our roles have a tremendous impact on our business’s customer experience. We support our business in ensuring they have the right talent in their teams, provide training and support to our employees. We help our business to be resilient, strategic, act ethically and we ensure it has the tools it needs to meet client demands. Some of these services includes a world class technical support, marketing & business development team, HR, resourcing, and well-being support.

 

Our internal client support teams are invaluable in the smooth running of our business and provide a quality client and people experience.

 

The UK Digital Hub team is formed of specialists that work across all areas of Grant Thornton helping the service lines to develop their own digital solutions and manage digital change in the service of our clients to ensure that all work is delivered to a high standard.

What’s in it for you?

Opportunity: Once you become part of the Agile Talent Community, you will be exposed to a variety of short-term or long-term projects within our Actuarial & Insurance Consulting team enabling you to deliver exceptional service to our clients and help communities and businesses flourish. On top of that, you will be able to continue growing your skillset, building up your experience and network of business connections all whilst working alongside the Grant Thornton’s team of experts. This position also gives you the flexibility to work from anywhere in the UK with occasional travel required to our London office once the restrictions ease fully. 

 

Development: We believe our success is intrinsically linked to yours and will provide necessary training and support whether you’re on a project or not. From helping you navigate incoming regulation for freelancers to providing dedicated points of contact and offering training, we will always be there to support, advise and help you develop. 

                                         

Independence: A project focus lets you take on work as and when you want. The projects themselves will generally be full time, but this control allows you to create room around them for other priorities. We know you will need scope to pursue other interests whether personal or professional. The Agile Talent Community provides you that space without restriction. 

 

Everyday inclusion

Our ambition is that we are fully inclusive every day. This means that our working environment is one where everyone’s experience is important. Where people are treated fairly, and everyone has equal access to opportunities and where everyone feels safe to be themselves. We want to create a culture where it’s okay to ask questions and to understand more about different perspectives, so that we continuously educate and inform each other.

 

How to join 

You’ll first apply through our application website. We’ll ask you for your CV and some basic details. If your skills match what we are looking for, one of our recruiters will get in touch and walk you through the interview process. If there’s interest to continue, we’ll invite you to an interview with some of our key business leads. If successful, the final step will be to complete the onboarding process and background checks. 

 

We strive to ensure all our information, products, and services are accessible to everyone. If you need any adjustments to our processes to help you apply for our roles, please get in touch with the Agile Talent Team to discuss: agiletalentteam@uk.gt.com
