The Oceanova Group of companies has been very successful now for 11 years, and over that period, the IT infrastructure and business systems that were implemented to support the operations have developed in a progressive manner but without an overall IT Strategy. As a result, we now have a collection of individual business systems in place that deliver specific functionality to specific parts of the business. While business operations are reasonably efficient for the most part, the data assets of the organisation are fragmented and exist in silos, so we are not maximising the value of those assets. Data security is also a key deliverable for Oceanova as we exist in a highly regulated market.
To support the next stage in the development of the business, we are now seeking an outstanding individual to join us and lead the process of developing and implementing an overall IT Strategy that will support the ambitious plans that are already in place for Oceanova. This individual will have exceptional skills and experience in IT Strategy, will be able to see the big picture, and deliver results to cost and timescale targets.
You will be responsible for ensuring appropriate measures are in place to ensure our data and systems are secure, as well as leading our work on business intelligence and data analytics.
Due to the highly regulated nature of our work, a key element of the role is to develop and maintain data and information management policies, procedures, controls and guidance. Appropriate protocols must be in place and all staff must adhere to them at all times to ensure we are fully compliant with data protection regulation standards.
This is a senior role however does not hold any direct line management responsibilities as our IT delivery is all currently outsourced.
