Head of Application Services

Competitive Salary

Reading, UK

BMI are on a transformational journey involving the creation of a new Digital Lab / Tech Hub, employing some of the best tech talent out there. A business critical hire, the Head of Application Services will become a vital piece of that new digital and IT team.

BMI is part of the Standard Industries family of companies, operating globally and employing around 11,000 employees worldwide. They are a dynamic organisation, housing various construction brands that collectively make up the largest roofing and waterproofing business in the World.

BMI believe that a roof is so much more than the shelter and protection above us. Today it can also be a power station, a living space, a garden or even a work of art. This thinking has led to a major digital transformation, internally and externally, that will see the BMI group offering truly innovative products and services direct to end consumers; households and private property owners.

Reporting to the Service Delivery Director, the BMI Group are seeking to appoint a business focused and experienced Head of Application Services responsible for ensuring operational excellence across all application service domains.

The Role:

  • Will sponsor, drive and manage the full applications standardisation and rationalisation programme whilst reducing operational risk and improving the overall customer journey.
  • Will own and run the diverse application portfolio with the third party vendor whist assuring optimal performance, cost and service.
  • Will provide strategic and operational governance across the service delivery team whilst proactively driving the sharing of best practices and learning of service ownership across the global IT organisation.

The Person:

  • A well-rounded and commercially astute leader; able to embrace ambiguity and work under pressure whilst prioritising key business issues.
  • A proven track record of excellence across large-scale, business-critical IT applications delivery with experience of working in a multi-vendor IT sourcing environment.
  • A team player with exceptional negotiation, conflict resolution and stakeholder management; able to build strong relationships internally and externally.
