Job Description

Programme Manager

As a Barclays Programme Manager, you will have a chance to be leading a large-scale technology programme or multiple projects, consisting of multiple workstreams and matrix-managed teams. It will be your accountability to drive outcomes to achieve optimal results and provide clear and consistent communications to satisfy all stakeholders. Further to this you will ensure that the right tools and methods are used to manage the delivery from business case to closure. 

Barclays is one of the world's largest and most respected financial institutions, established in 1690, with a legacy of success, quality, and innovation. We offer careers that provide endless opportunity – helping millions of individuals and businesses thrive and creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted.

At Barclays, we offer a hybrid working experience that blends the positives of working alongside colleagues at our onsite locations, together with working from home. We have a structured approach where colleagues work at an onsite location on fixed, ‘anchor’, days of the week, for a minimum of two days a week or more, as set by the business area (or nearest equivalent if working part-time hours). Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager. Please note that as we continue to embed our hybrid working environment, we remain in a test and learn phase, which means that working arrangements may be subject to change on reasonable notice to ensure we meet the needs of our business.

What will you be doing?
• Taking the lead on the project, executing the required changes to deliver against agreed programme objectives
• Developing and managing execution, optimising timelines, resources and ensuring a focus on incremental and agile delivery
• Co-ordinating and controlling of programme delivery, ensuring execution is interlocked across work streams
• Being accountable for set up and management of programme governance, to manage working groups and management meetings as required to support delivery
• Maintaining a future focus, looking ahead to ensure project risks and issues are managed effectively
• Reviewing quality of project deliverables through the project lifecycle

What we’re looking for:
• Large scale programme management and governance experience
• Experience and confidence in working with multiple senior stakeholders across business, technology and operations teams
• Excellent interpersonal, communication, presentation and influencing skills 
• Ability to master and navigate new subject domains quickly

Skills that will help you in the role:
• Good financial skills – forecast and budget management
• Experience in delivering Agile or SAFe programmes
• Integrity and trustworthiness in order to maintain the team’s reputation and standing
• Excellent PC skills including Excel, PowerPoint and Word

Where will you be working?

The Barclays Technology Campus, just outside Manchester, is our transatlantic tech command centre for information security in the UK. It’s the vital strategic powerhouse behind our global operations. Radbroke is a place where big ideas become realities. Where the talent in the world can build careers full of scope, variety and reward, by creating the technical solutions that meet today’s demands, answer tomorrow’s questions and redefine the future of finance.
