What is the Voyager Programme?

The Voyager programme is aptly named as it's exactly that - it's the next phase of our journey in how we evolve to further digitise our business. We've already taken some big steps to transform our business, modernising how we serve customers and changing how we work. This programme builds on this progress and continues to simplify activity around our systems and processes and progressively enhance our IT architecture. Combining future-proofed cloud technology with smart customer data and insight, we want to deliver an even better and more personalised customer experience whichever channel they choose.

So what would I focus on in this role?

You will be the face of the Business and Commercial Banking team, championing key responsible business concepts across Environmental, Social, and corporate Governance (ESG) factors, ensuring ESG is at the heart of all the projects and initiatives we are driving. You'll be a key Business contact engaging with all those involved in our technology strategy planning, plus our Responsible Business Team to make that happen.

"You'll ensure sustainability and our vulnerable customers are considered in all we do", quote from Ben Diner when talking about this role, Senior Product Owner in Group Transformation

You'll be responsible and accountable for keeping a clear vision of our sustainability and responsibility objectives, driving forward initiatives in senior management meetings, programme planning sessions and day to day life within the Agile Lab. You'll be presenting to relevant colleagues, collaborating and informing, influencing and supporting as required to keep us on the right path.

Some of the specific tasks you'll be involved in might be; supporting the product & delivery planning, operating model development, supporting early proposition development, product specifications and elements of the detailed strategy planning.

Voyager will be one of the most high profile programmes of work in the bank, setting our 2027 technology strategy and driving this across the whole of Group Transformation

What experience do you need to apply for this role?

We like people who come from a diverse cultural backgrounds, with different ways of thinking who can challenge our current practices. That said, because of the nature of this role it is important to have existing knowledge of the sustainability, environmental impacts, vulnerable customer needs and banking responsibilities, therefore you are likely to have a banking background in retail or commercial.

As a minimum to apply you should have:

  • prior demonstrable experience as a Product Owner within an Agile environment,
  • expertise on environmental and sustainability issues and their impact on specific sectors, including the financial sector
  • a passion and real desire to help us achieve our ESG targets,
  • ideally an awareness of commercial/retail banking products.

Worth pointing out that this programme of work is moving very quickly, so you will need to be very comfortable working in a change environment.

This roles would be great if you……

  • Are passionate about driving a comprehensive ESG agenda within financial services
  • Are passionate about making the lives of our vulnerable customers better
  • Want to help us drive a socially responsible technology strategy

What would you get in return?

We'll give you stretch as well as an energising and informal environment. You'll realise genuine career progression opportunities gained within a nurturing culture that celebrates both diversity and equal opportunity.
