I’m partnering with a household name in the professional services industry.  The business is going through a self-generated period of transformation, to improve their technology and processes.  The aim of 2021 is to grow by 30% and a large chunk of that will come through organic channels.  Technology is huge for the business.  They are self-aware, however, and are keen to remove technical debt, improve supplier quality and make a transition towards a more product led model.  They are currently looking for an experienced Head of Engineering & DevOps to lead in the maturity of the software development function.  This role will lead the shaping and driving of DevOps in the business, implementing the correct tools, implementing correct levels of governance and improving coding practices.  The business is embarking on an Azure transformation and this role will manage the squads through the process and build an Azure led DevOps mentality.  You will be an experienced technology leader with experience of with delivering quality applications across web, mobile, B2B/B2C and CRM.  They are a Microsoft house, and so a strong track record of managing large MS led development teams (40-50 heads) will be important.  You will ideally have embedded DevOps approach in to an enterprise scale technology function previously.

The role is flexible by choice, and so candidates from anywhere in the UK will be considered.  This role is being offered initially on a fixed term basis (12-18 months) as the new TOM is finalised.
