Would you like to be part of a team architecting new IT services?

Do you enjoy using your coupling your technical expertise with commercial awareness to fulfil user needs and business goals?

Join our Services Portfolio Management Team

Softcat’s Services Portfolio Management function is in place to develop, introduce, and improve, the IT services that we offer our customers. The role of the team is to research new potential service offerings and bring them to life by working with the wider organisation.

Success. The Softcat Way.

Softcat is a major UK success story in technology solutions. We’re a £1 billion+ pa turnover business with offices nationwide and a sterling industry reputation. We help customers to use technology to succeed, by putting our employees first. Our success is down to our people – and the platform we give them to prove their potential.

Do you want to have an impact and join a business where you can make the difference?

As the Services Portfolio Manager, you are pivotal in the development and delivery of the services roadmap. You will be the custodian of each service during its development and testing within the cross-functional, self-managing service development team, to ensure the service product is developed in line with the vision for it. Akin to a Product Manager, you will have accountability for the quality of your products. The role will see you deploy your knowledge of user needs and business goals to frame problems and set priorities for your delivery teams. Within that scope, you will be asked to develop and support IT managed services for Cloud, Cyber Security and Digital Workspace.

Additionally, you’ll be responsible for:

  • Researching new service requirements and formulating business cases for approval
  • Owning project management of the creation and development of any new services that are approved
  • Ensuring service development updates are communicated to key people in Softcat
  • Understanding of customer needs, the market, our competition, and future trends to feed into services being developed
  • Determining the features of each service and articulating the vision behind each service to the team
  • Being engaged with the virtual service development team building great relationships with team members

What we need from you

  • Experience developing services across IT managed services including Cloud, Cyber Security and Digital Workspace
  • Experience working within an organisation focused on service in relation to fast-paced projects
  • Background of working in a highly analytical way to find creative solutions to challenges
  • Ability to develop and maintain relationships within a team made up of many different roles
  • Excellent oral and written communication, able to present information clearly, persuasively, and elegantly
  • Organisational leadership skills, an ability to balance priorities, organise own workload, and work under pressure without supervision

Work in a way that works for you

We recognise that everyone is different and that the way in which people want to work and deliver at their best is different for everyone too. In this role, we can offer the following flexible working patterns:

  • Occasional home working possible
  • Working flexible hours – options to flex the times you start and finish during the day
