Key Responsibilities :

BNPParibas CIB invested in the Symphony in 2017 and are utilising the Symphony platform as an advanced collaboration tool which will enable both communication and automation between internal and external parties.

The platform is current in use by the Global Markets business and CIB are now deploying it to other business units and functions.

To do this the CIB level programme is being initiated and is looking for a strong senior project manager to help run the programme.

Reporting to the programme manager, the Project Manager will

  • Advise and help initiate the programme workstreams, ensuring they are correctly staffed and led.
  • Run and facilitate workstreams (either ad interim or long term) as identified during the initiation period
  • Undertake deployment and adoption planning and execution in partnership with the business lines and functions
  • Understand the key success criteria for each of the user groups
  • Ensure that all appropriate reviews and sign off have taken place (Compliance, Security, Legal etc)

    The successful candidate will not just identify risks and issues but personally take hold of solving them and not be afraid of getting their hands dirty to do so.
