Contract Type: Permanent

Virgin is well known for doing things better and we are constantly on the lookout for talented, imaginative and smart people to help deliver success. We are working hard to offer real alternative to banking as usual and we need you to support us on our journey.

We have a new and exciting role within our IT Service Operations function and are looking for an experienced ServiceNow Developer & Lead to pave the way in developing and supporting our ServiceNow platform. This is a diverse role where no one day is the same and so we are looking for someone who is able to provide direction and leadership on all things technical.

As a ServiceNow Developer & Lead your role will be equally split between being an SME and a technical advisor on the ServiceNow Platform (ITSM, ITOM, GRC and Portal), building and shaping an open and collaborative development team and using your development skills to deliver smart solutions for the bank.

We are looking for someone creative, innovative and forward thinking who is able to deliver new functionality and create solutions to develop and support the Platform we are working on. We want you to bring fresh ideas in and design, build and customise ServiceNow applications and services.

Day to day you will be:

  • Managing and building out a team of 5 developers, creating an open and creative environment that allows individuals to reach their potential and grown on their technical career paths.
  • Working collaboratively with other IT colleagues and support the IT Manager to deliver a stable and performant ServiceNow platform
  • Identifying emerging industry and technology trends, continuous improvement, training needs and areas of risk
  • Own and lead technical discussions, in area of specialism, when assessing impact of new initiatives, work requests and the support of existing services
  • Help input into the IT strategy and systems development roadmaps
  • Serve in an architect role for ServiceNow and take responsibility for gathering requirements, developing & delivering technical solutions and supporting the IT Manager in achieving time, cost and quality measures
  • Supporting senior management to ensure that all plans, work packages and deliverables are aligned to the expected benefits and leads activities required in the realisation of the benefits of each part of the change programme

What will it take?

To be brilliant, we need someone with strong leadership skills, strategic vision, and the ability to build strong business relationships. As an engaging individual you will enjoy building relationships and have the gravitas and confidence to work effectively with all levels across the business. We’re seeking Virgin people who are insatiably curious and want to help us build a better bank. Its hard work, fast paced but we promise you’ll have great fun being part of something special.

We would love it if you had significant (5+ years) evidence of delivering ITSM, Portal and Scripting (including but not limited to HTML, CSS, JavaScript, XML, HTTP, PowerShell), APIs, Portal design, CMDB, Virtual Agent, Flow Designer and Integration hub on ServiceNow and 5+ years managing and transforming a development team. The ideal candidate would also have 2+ years ITOM experience and exposure to other modules in the ServiceNow platform.

We know that this is a wish list so don’t worry if you don’t have all the desirable skills, we’d still love to hear from you!
