For our client located in Brussels, Belgium, we are currently looking for a Senior Consultant with proven experience in the optimisation of IT organisations withing large/multinational companies.

Start: Medio August
Duration: 3 months + extention
Work location: Brussel
Project language: English

Our client currently has 3 Brussels based ICT systems and service providers. In addition they have multiple IT developments ongoing, with some of them of a semi-operational nature. This structure is not sustainable in the long run: it lacks clarity towards deliverables and responsibilities, it creates opaque governance structure generates overlapping centres of competence and it is hostile to economies of scale.
Our clients board decided therefore to launch a enquiry with a view to centralise all ICT systems and services into one central service provider.

This study should
1. Provide an effective strategy to ensure that the client can call upon the appropriate ICT services that enable the business to achieve its objectives in the most cost effective way;
2. Provide for a roadmap to centralise all ICT systems and services into one central service provider (internal centralised services) with optimum performance levels at lower costs;
3. Include "semi operationally" used databases
4. Identify additional IT components elsewhere in the client that should be brought under the IT umbrella.

To this respect a Study team has been set up, under the leadership of the Director IT.
The Study team requires external support to assist with the elaboration of the working documents, and to check the findings of the study team with industry best practices.

Desired Profile
* Senior management experience within large and preferably multinational companies with an excellent knowledge of industry best practices in terms of ICT organisation
* Proven experience in organising ICT systems and services: The candidate should have proven experience in the optimisation of IT organisations within large and preferably multinational companies (having IT units at multiple places in their organisation, or after mergers - acquisitions)
* Excellent ability to analyse complex processes and describe them in a comprehensive manner
* Strong interpersonal skills and ability to work in a multicultural environment

Education
University Degree in business management and/or IT management
