LOCATION:


Job profile summary:

BP has embarked on an ambitious plan to modernize and transform using digital technologies to drive efficiency, effective and new business models. You are an IT Service Owner, accountable for building and running an IT Service. You will own a set of IT products that help BP solve problems, deliver value and operate safely and responsibly.

Your mission is to be the IT provider of choice to your area of BP - delivering innovation at speed where it's wanted, and day-in-day-out reliability where it's needed. You will operate in a dynamic and commercially-focussed environment, with the resources of one of the world's largest IT departments, and some of the world's leading IT vendors at your fingertips. You will grow and strengthen our technical talent base - bringing experts together to solve BP's problems.

At IT&S, all the roles are within Chapters. While your role will continue to remain within the Chapter, your initial activities described below may change over time. The chapter will be based on your skill set and will be confirmed if you are the successful candidate.

  • You will have experience of running an agile DevOps function responsible for delivering and maintaining reliable and commercially efficient products at scale initially focused on the Salesforce Optimisation CRM product
  • You will ideally be a qualified Scrum Master and have at least few years of scrum master experience with a team of 8 10 people and ensure best practice agile ways of working in your team
  • Experience of an IT business interface, technology & strategy role successfully balancing business demands with enterprise drivers, being the face of IT to the business
  • Experience of leading IT projects securing investment, running governance, selecting solutions and vendors, planning, and running through to operations
Key Accountabilities

Team: You are a high-performing technical individual who supports the individuals working in our cross-functional squads. Developing the capabilities of the service you are responsible for to deliver the most agile and commercially cost-effective solutions is one of your top priorities. We expect every leader at BP to demonstrate leadership through delegation, motivation and trust. Our people embrace the growth mindset and culture. We lead and solve problems through our Explore, Think, Do approach.

Relationships: Youll partner with key stakeholders from across the business to help define what the product roadmap is and how your teams will help deliver it. The role requires thought leadership and the ability to influence and inspire change in a positive and impactful way. As well as having accountability for your own service, you will sit on several governance boards to drive other products in service of the wider IT agenda.

Investment and Delivery: You will seek investment to grow, renew and optimize your Service. This means pitching for seed funding to deliver proofs of concept at pace. When investment is secured, you will design a capability to make the change. We typically use DevOps teams - you build it, you run it. When a product from another service affects your service, you will be part of the governance structure for it.

Technology: The architecture function will partner with you to agree the most suitable technology and operating model choices. Service Owners drive re-use of technology, choosing BPs common platforms wherever possible and promoting business process consolidation. You will drive the automation of business and IT process in order to reduce costs.
