We have an exciting opportunity for a Release Manager to help a leading Banking and Finance organisation ensure the protection and stability of the production environment by utilising the release management process and framework to achieve successful deployments.

The role will start initially for 6 months with the view to extend.

Your responsibilties will include:
  • Develop risk management strategies to minimise the impact of releases on production stability, performance and reliability
  • Uphold the Release Management competencies across business and continually develop the process and standards to ensure that releases are implemented in a controlled manner
  • Assist in the transition to Agile Operating model for the platform and the move to Agile Release Train management (ART) but with strong focus in traditional release management and Change Board structures
  • Responsible for Release reporting
  • Responsible for maintaining a Release Schedule to ensure effective prioritisation, planning and conflict mitigation
  • Analyse project documentation for the Release Gate process to ensure all projects in the Release deliver the required solution on time
  • Responsible for producing a Release Milestone plan
  • Convey the risks and issues associated with individual Releases to stakeholders to ensure group knowledge and understanding of Release decisions and outcomes
  • Assist in creating Release remediation plans

  • Responsible for maintaining a Release risk, issues and dependencies log associated with individual release to ensure group knowledge and understanding of Release decisions and outcomes and to minimise conflict and delivery issues
  • Develop and influence relationships with key senior stakeholders
Experience Required:
  • Experience in delivering major business critical programs and multiple projects through the full systems life cycle with significant system build and integration of multi-platform systems (distributed and mid tier).
  • Experience as an Agile Release Train Manager, as the platform we are running is in transition to an ART model, however strict disciplines from traditional Release management will also apply due to the complexity of the platform and downstream consumers.
  • Experience managing multiple environments and systems (up to 10).
  • Experience with the application of Release Management disciplines and techniques
  • Experience in delivering product development projects within the financial services sector, desirable
  • Experience across the Financial services is preferred but not essential for this role.
