Job description

Securities Services provides robust and reliable solutions that enhance performance and mitigate risk, today and in the future. Working with institutional investors, banks, insurance companies, governments and multinational corporations, Securities Services offers a range of fund administration, global custody, sub-custody and clearing, and corporate trust and loan agency services.

We are currently seeking a high calibre professional to join our team as a Project Manager.

Principal Responsibilities

This is a project delivery position. The role will be assigned to change initiatives within COO Transformation Regulatory, Tax and Mandatory (RTM) portfolio delivery team, dependent on current demand and priorities at the time

The objective of the RTM portfolio within COO Transformation (COOT) is to safeguard the Securities Services business globally and ensure we always remain within compliance requirements so we can continue to operate. The composition of the portfolio is driven by changes either in (1) external regulatory and tax compliance requirements, or (2) by market driven change (such as IBOR or the SWIFT ISO standards), or (3) by HSBC Group/GBM/SSv mandated programmes of work (such as Global Standards or Conduct Risk)

In all instances these changes will typically impact the Securities Services business across multiple sectors and product lines and/or countries and regions, and therefore require support from the central COOT RTM Portfolio to co-ordinate, manage and implement the resultant cross-business change

Projects will usually involve the building of new business models in conjunction with Product, Technology, and Operations to support internal business or external market driven initiatives; re-structuring of existing business; and/or re-engineering initiatives driven by industry changes and internal projects / initiatives. Effective liaison with Regulatory Compliance, Tax Compliance, Legal and Client Management functions is an integral component of most projects

A proven track record in the successful delivery of fast-paced, change initiatives is essential, along with experience in working with regulatory or tax compliance driven change. Previous experience working with third party vendors and outsource providers will be advantageous. Developing and maintaining strong working relationships internally and with client contacts and third parties is a key component of the role, as is stakeholder management and the ability to communicate effectively across all levels of the organisation

The job-holder will carry out the project management for a project or may manage elements of a strategic programme managed by a Programme Manager

The projects will involve the management of multiple work streams and resources from within the Reg change delivery team, as well as across the business sectors and technology change teams. Developing and maintaining strong working relationships internally and with client contacts and third parties is therefore a key component of the role, as is stakeholder management and the ability to communicate effectively across all levels of the organisation. For smaller scale projects the Project Manager is expected to be able to undertake Business Analysis as required to define scope, timelines, and delivery

A primary objective is to ensure projects are delivered within the timescales and to budget, highlighting and resolving issues as they arise. Additionally, a consistent and professional approach to project management is essential with particular attention to the risk profile of the project delivery and the subsequent operational model
  • To provide or support high quality project delivery services in line with the strategic objectives of the business
  • Programme/Project Set Up and Closure: Works with the business to define and agree project structure and benefits and to confirm that outputs and outcomes will support their realisation
  • Governance and Reporting: Creates, implements, and operates within an appropriate governance framework which aligns to the wider Group governance framework
  • Planning and Finance: Defines detailed project delivery plan; drives progress against the project plan; understands, challenges, and proactively manages the cost position; and acts to mitigate potential cost or time delays
  • Resource Management: Identifies and secures appropriate resources to work on the project; defines clear roles and responsibilities for all team members including specific responsibility for production of all deliverables
  • Stakeholder Management: Leads the management/delivery of change through establishing effective relationships with key stakeholders
  • To develop and maintain an excellent working relationship with business colleagues in support of project delivery
  • To identify and mitigate project risks with an objective of zero defects once business transferred to the live environment; in addition to manage and mitigate the impacts of issues where they arise
  • Dependent on assignment, to manage and develop a team of staff who are responsible for supporting and facilitating delivery of projects either within the Department or as a collective project team from across the business
  • Risk: Continuously evaluates programmes/projects for financial and people risk and regulatory compliance and takes appropriate steps to mitigate
  • Group Values: Role models HSBC Group values and behaviour and encourages this across the Change community, through visible leadership and by example
