The EIB, the European Union's bank, is seeking to recruit for its Corporate Services Directorate - Information Technology Department at its headquarters in Luxembourg, a Head of Admin Suite Unit. This is a full-time position at grade 5/6.
The term of this contract will be 4 years.
Panel interviews are anticipated for mid March 2020.
The EIB offers fixed-term contracts of up to a maximum of 6 years, according to business needs, with a possibility to convert to a permanent contract, subject to organisational requirements and individual performance.
The Admin Suite Unit provides and maintains a broad set of solutions, from small to medium-sized bespoke internal developments to medium-sized commercial off-the-shelf applications (COTS). The team focuses on two major directions: sourcing and implementing solutions, and providing the maintenance and support via externalized services.
As the Head of Unit, you will manage a team of IT application officers and consultants; drive the rationalisation and simplification of transversal solutions managed by the Unit, contributing thus to the achievement of EIB's objectives.
In collaboration with the business counterparts and other Units within IT, you will steer the whole Application Lifecycle (plan, source, implement, operate and transform), including the project roadmap, the requirement analysis, design, implementation and maintenance.
Given the wide area of responsibility, the post requires extensive knowledge and experience in solution sourcing and implementation and in managing externalized services.
You will report directly to the Head of Corporate Applications Division.

If selected, such candidates will be hired on the condition that they build up rapidly knowledge of French and accept that their future career in the EIB may be subject to the attainment of sufficient proficiency in both of the Bank's working languages.
