The Business Project Management Office (BPMO) provides a response vehicle supporting the Executive Committee of The Bank of New York Mellon SA/NV (“BNYM SA/NV”) in meeting its changing and challenging business and regulatory requirements and priorities. The BPMO projects are prioritized by the Executive Committee and a fit-for-purpose project artifacts methodology is being applied. The BPMO project manager will work closely with senior stakeholders and subject matter experts, including Executive Committee members.
The BPMO project manager is not only a project manager, but, where it is applicable, he/she will also be expected to play a business support role and demonstrate business analysis skills. He/she will support the business partners in producing the deliverables of the project. In that respect, the BPMO team is composed of project management professionals that are also equipped with business and knowledge skills like Risk Management, Operations and Finance for instance. Abilities will include gathering of key and relevant information (covering a range of financial products and diverse business processes, but also spanning across multiple locations and jurisdictions), clearly documenting the information captured, driving out viable solutions and gaining consensus on the final solution.
BPMO projects often relate to regulatory deliverables and on-site inspections. The BPMO project manager will face the need to deliver high-quality deliverables within tight regulatory-driven deadlines. Knowledge of regulatory/governance framework within the financial sector is welcome.
