Office location:Basel

Unit:Information Services
Employment - Duration:3 years
Contract type:Fixed-term

The Bank for International Settlements is an international organisation promoting global monetary and financial stability, and a bank for central banks. At the BIS, colleagues from a wide range of backgrounds bring different knowledge and expertise to the team. This creates a stimulating working environment with opportunities for collaborating and developing innovative solutions to business challenges. Joining us is not just about launching your international career – it is also about doing meaningful work for the public good and serving the global community.

During 2021-24, ITS-Information Services will implement an “Information Management 2025” strategy aimed at fully digitising and optimising information and records and archives management at the BIS. The goal is to help the Bank achieve three key components of its Innnovation 2025 strategy:

  • improving the way we work by streamlining processes and reducing inefficiencies.
  • digitising the workplace by eliminating paper-based processes and enabling secure remote/mobile working.
  • enhancing cyber and operational resilience by rationalising and improving the protection and preservation of the Bank’s most critical information assets.

To achieve these goals, the Senior Project Manager will help develop a comprehensive, medium-term roadmap in line with the Bank’s (hybrid) Cloud strategy; see to its endorsment by Management; and coordinate its implementation. The roadmap implementation will have important policy, business process and technology implementation components.

Principal accountabilities

  • Assess the existing information management framework and technology landscape at the BIS, and identify requirements for necessary revisions, both short- and medium-term. Focus foremost on Bank wide information management policies and procedures, information classification, digital records management and long-term digital archiving, both on-premises and in the Cloud. 
  • Define and fine-tune the BIS information management roadmap, incl. project scoping and capacity planning in view of a phased roll-out of new policies, procedures and technology solutions. Involve business stakeholders and management as needed.
  • Coordinate the phased implementation of the agreed roadmap, in close cooperation with BIS Information Services and ITS. Liaise with the relevant business units to ensure that new policies and procedures are developed, documented and accepted, and that technology solutions are tested and implemented in a coordinated and timely manner.
  • Under the guidance of the Head of Information Services and ITS Management, act as programme manager implementing the “Information Management 2025” strategy. Manage the delivery of projects in line with agreed objectives, budgets and timelines. Coordinate project activity across internal project resources, contractors and external suppliers.
  • Apply BIS project management methodology, and adhere to relevant Bank policies and procedures. Proactively manage programme risks, issues and dependencies. Liaise with internal and external stakeholders. Regularly report programme progress to the project owners and ITS Management.
  • Ensure that revised policies, procedures and business processes can be made operational in line with the Bank’s overall business strategy and are properly communicated.
  • Act as a member of the ITS-Information Services team. Ensure that the team is fully involved in the definition and implementation of new policies and procedures and of the information management roadmap. Advise the Head of Information Services on possible organisational and business process changes resulting from the implementation of the revised information management framework.
  • Perform resource management, supervisory, administrative and budgetary functions as required, adhering to relevant Bank policies and procedures.
