Position:

Senior Scrum Master

Project Description

Our Client has operated in Europe since 1913 and is the largest of IB&M’s international businesses. IB&M operates in Europe via a London branch, a UK subsidiary and a Malta licensed bank.

The London branch provides Global Markets (GM) services to EU clients via the UK subsidiary which currently has passporting rights into the EU. The strategy in Europe remains focused upon four global industry verticals being Financial Institutions, Natural Resources, Infrastructure and Industrials & Logistics.

Under a ‘hard Brexit’, bank would lose the ability to deal in GM products with EU domiciled clients and access to a deep and highly liquid capital market. EU and UK regulators are taking a hard line and have requested contingency plans.
IB&M has set up a Brexit program that aims to establish a subsidiary and office in Amsterdam to meet the requirements of the UK leaving the EU. The Program has created eight streams of work including Technology Readiness.
There are two key components of technology: 1) local infrastructure and network connectivity; 2) business systems. The first component is strongly linked to the Property Readiness stream and hence is managed in such a way. This stream is focussed on business systems readiness.
