About the role

We have a team vision of "highly skilled individuals, working together to deliver business improvements and maintaining robust systems” and we need your help.

We are looking for someone who can manage, lead and motivate our technical system delivery teams, supporting and inspiring them to cultivate new projects, create improvements and innovations, as we care for service delivery within Revenues & Benefits.

  • Digital transformation
  • Digital Customer Access
  • Managing Annual Billing or Year-end in a Revenues and Benefits Service
  • Platform or software migrations
  • The successful candidate will lead and manage teams who work with internal and external stakeholders to deliver business as usual and change projects. Effective interpersonal and communications skills are essential to this position.
