There’s never been a better time to join Nationwide…

Did you know we’re the world’s largest Building Society? Last year more people opened an account with us than with any other brand! We have one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry and continue to be voted the UK’s most trusted financial services brand. Also as a Mutual Society, we’re owned by our members not shareholders, so their needs are at the heart of everything we do, which further sets us apart from our competitors!

Building on that success, we’re now on a hugely exciting and ambitious transformation journey to become a simpler, more agile and innovative organisation, whilst remaining relentlessly focused on delivering legendary products and services to our members and Building Society...

With significant investment, we’re focused on driving change that’s delivered ‘at pace’, is future-proofed and aligned with our strategic objectives and we’ll do this through our people.

And that’s where you come in…

As an experienced Senior Project Manager in our Security Change Squad, you’ll play a key role in driving our security strategy and transforming our Security capability to ‘best in class’, enabling us to better serve and protect our 15 million members. This is a unique opportunity to help deliver complex change initiatives, deploying leading cyber security technology and capabilities with far reaching, positive impacts across the Society, our domains, estate and ultimately member experience!

Experience of delivering in Agile and Waterfall environments
Experience of line managing change professionals
Experience in developing and managing stakeholder and business relationships, with excellent verbal and written communication and presentation skills
Awareness of the regulatory landscape and associated expectations when delivering change into the financial services industry and the critical importance of the security and control of our members’ information

• Working with Product Owners within Security to control the delivery of initiatives to time, cost and quality. Leading appropriate governance forums, including the production of necessary collateral to facilitate such meetings.
• Supporting the definition and adoption of agile approaches in the squad
• Recruitment, development and performance management of Project Managers and Delivery Managers
