Lorien partners with Nationwide to spark tech transformation with 500 hires and new tech hub
We’re delighted to announce that Lorien has been selected as the technology recruitment partner to Nationwide – the world’s largest building society. We’re excited to support the Society spark technology transformation through their people and prime the business for the next generation of digital innovation.
This includes hiring over 500 technology specialists per year in areas including Agile and DevOps, cloud and infrastructure, cybersecurity, data and analytics, and software development and engineering in London and Swindon. And that’s where Lorien comes in.
The UK tech economy has grown by 40% in the last two years, creating 2.93 million jobs and accounting for 9% of the nation’s workforce. Today, technology is at the core of business and competition for the best talent can be fierce. But Lorien is committed to helping Nationwide find the people to drive their strategy as part of our recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) solution. As a technology recruitment specialist, we’re aware of the demand – but also of the amazing opportunity that Nationwide is offering to the technology community.
We are currently searching for talent technologists who want to be part of an organisation that isn’t just about the bottom line; with development, support and benefits to build your career on. And the kind of challenges that will stretch and test you. You can find out what roles are currently available here.
This recruitment drive is the latest initiative in Nationwide’s digital transformation, which will see a multi-billion tech investment over the next five years, including the launch of a brand new technology hub in London. Previous initiatives include one of the largest SAP Core Banking deployments globally and building digital distribution channels simultaneously to become the second fastest growing digital banking provider in the UK.
Now, they’re looking for people to support with the next phase, including:
• Re-platforming of digital assets, including digitisation and multi-channel technology integration across the high street and mobile channel estate to deliver a better member experience.
• Significant operating model changes driven by Agile adoption, DevOps standards and cloud exploitation.
• Simplifying Nationwide’s data estate and increasing investment in AI and machine learning to enhance analytics and insight capabilities.
• A future-focussed innovation agenda, including creating a £50m FinTech venture fund and launching Open Banking aggregation services.
• Simplifying application and infrastructure platforms to enable growth, as well as developing a greenfield digital platform to develop products and propositions for the future.
This bold investment in digital reflects Nationwide’s commitment to continuously making technology faster and simpler for its 15 million members. We’re proud to partner with a client that is so future-focused and committed to investing in the UK’s booming technology economy.
Nationwide will be kick-starting their recruitment campaign with a focus on their engineering bench, with roles in cloud, infrastructure and engineering. Please contact Josh Vogel at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about what a career at Nationwide could look like for you.
Because technology may power the world, but talent powers the technology. And both Lorien and Nationwide know it.
