Global Head of Digital Transformation - Product Division

Global Head of Digital Transformation - Product Division

Euroclear

Brussels, Belgium

Role

The role will oversee the delivery of the digital transformation across products and services and be accountable for the successful delivery of the programme and the realization of the expected benefits (including after the closing of each project)

The Global Head of Digital Transformation will be a direct report of the Group Strategy and Product Expansion Division Head, who is a member of the Group Executive Committee. He/she will have a small team reporting to him/her, focusing mainly at the start on the product management aspects of the role. Nevertheless, the other teams in Commercial and IT will also have a “dotted” reporting line to him/her.

Qualifications

Required skills

The person should have experience in digital transformations in a B-to-B context. Such transformation experience should ideally be in the financial/securities world. Having an understanding of the business of Euroclear and of CSDs in general would definitely be an asset.

Even though the role is a business one and not an IT one, the required capabilities include:

  • Translating the organization’s strategy into a vision for user experience and technology and mapping the required digital capabilities to reach that strategic vision;
  • Understanding the link between the strategic vision and the required IT architecture;
  • Staying aware of emerging digital technologies as well as the way other companies are transforming themselves.

As his/her role can be seen as “the Euroclear face of the transformation”, the person, as the key driving force behind the program, should have strong leadership skills and should enjoy making things move in the short run. He/she will need to lead and to give direction. Inspiring employees and serving as role models for the sort of behavior necessary to effect change are also key qualities expected.

Moreover, because the transformation will be very transversal, he/she should have some experience in managing teams without necessarily having a hierarchical responsibility. Hence he/she will need to show that he/she can act and get results in a matrix environment. He/she will need to feel comfortable to lead and drive steering committees with energy and drive.

Finally, as he/she will need to liaise internally with a large number of internal stakeholders, he/she will need to get access to them thanks to his/her credibility and remain impartial and open-minded whilst moderating with them.

Euroclear having its largest personnel base in Brussels, the role would ideally be located in Brussels. Nevertheless, Paris or London are also possible but would require very regular travelling to Brussels, probably around 3 days per week.

Specific requirements

  • Bachelor’s and/or advanced degree in Business administration, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Informatics, Information Systems, or other related fields
  • Experience working within an agile environment, using Kanban, etc.;
  • 10+ years of experience managing teams within a digital environment;
  • Action-oriented with strong project management skills, with demonstrated experience in building new processes and guiding multi-threaded projects or processes to completion;
  • Ability to convert business strategy into action-oriented objectives and measurable results;
  • Ability to develop and manage a budget;
  • English is a must. A good command of other group languages (mainly French and/or Dutch) would probably facilitate his/her integration.
