Your team
You will be part of the Information Governance (IGO) Division of the Directorate General Secretariat. We are currently implementing an Enterprise Information Management Strategy and laying the foundations for an enterprise-wide Knowledge Management Programme. These two initiatives will introduce a holistic approach to managing the ECB’s information and knowledge assets. Librarians, archivists and records managers are working in close collaboration with information technology experts to make this happen.

The IGO Division is responsible for developing the ECB’s Information Governance Framework and implementing innovative collaboration and information tools and services. Several of these services rely on DARWIN, the ECB’s Enterprise Content Management System. DARWIN is based on the standard software package of OpenText Content Server, and serves more than 13,000 users in the European System of Central Banks, the European Systemic Risk Board, the Single Supervisory Mechanism and the European Financial Stability Facility. We aim to provide all of these teams with solutions that enable them to manage and share an increasing amount of information and facilitate collaboration.

We are now seeking to recruit two Principal Information Management Experts to lead the Archives and Records Management team and the Information Management Solutions team. In this role you will lead a team of between 8 and 10 colleagues and play a key role in information management projects to support the implementation of information policies and to facilitate collaboration and business effectiveness.

contribute to the Division’s strategic planning by identifying particular trends and opportunities in the area of information governance.

In addition, as leader of the Information Management Solutions team you will:
lead the evolution of solutions for the medium/long term (e.g. areas of development/improvement with a specific focus on finding an appropriate balance between user friendliness, risk mitigation and costs);
support the DARWIN Service Owner where decisions are required;
coordinate the delivery of functional support and/or training to maintain a high level of customer adoption and satisfaction.

In addition, as leader of the Archives and Records Management team you will:
lead the further development and transformation of the current information management offering and team (i.e. ensuring that current tasks and activities serve desired end goals, add value and are as lean as possible;)
contribute to the development of innovative solutions that serve ECB information governance requirements;
support the design and implementation of agile information processes and/or training to maintain a high level of customer adoption and satisfaction;
coordinate activities designed to ensure adherence to ECB information governance policies.

The positions offer an excellent opportunity to lead and further develop highly dynamic teams that provide state-of-the-art EIM and knowledge solutions to enable end users to work smarter and faster. You will be part of a multicultural team that strives for continuous innovation to make a positive impact on the lives of European citizens.
