Bloomberg delivers critical information in a world where information matters. We give influential decision makers in business, finance and government a competitive edge by connecting them to a dynamic network of news, people and ideas. To do that, we need a constant flow of ideas, energy, innovation—which is where you come in. At Bloomberg, you will have the opportunity to go above and beyond and to take risks. Be a part of an organization that is entering new markets, launching new ventures and pushing boundaries. Our ever-expanding array of technology, data, news and media services fosters innovation and offers nearly limitless opportunities for career growth.

What’s the role

Our SAP Solutions team is responsible for developing and managing internal solutions that support Bloomberg processes such as Order-to-Cash, Procure-to-Pay, Supply Chain, and Reporting. The Program and Change Management offices support this SAP Solutions team, an in-house team of engineers, and all business stakeholders in project/change delivery and portfolio management. You will lead both the Program and Change Management Offices. The teams are often called upon to support larger, non-SAP programs across the enterprise.

You will lead both teams, to support and provide mentorship as they deliver large-scale, strategic programs across the enterprise. You will also be responsible for the adoption of project/change management principles through a common framework and methodology used by SAP analysts in support over 200 projects annually. You will provide portfolio-level oversight and strategies.

This is an amazing opportunity to directly manage others and provide strategic direction, while remaining hands-on.

  • Provide strategic direction and planning for the broader SAP Solutions department and the business stakeholders
  • Influence and advise on adherence to the project and change management frameworks
  • Lead change and programs for large-scale programs with enterprise-wide influence
  • Lead department initiatives around user-experience design and innovation
  • Use diverse and compelling methods to communicate effectively to global stakeholders

You need to have

  • Bachelor’s Degree
  • 10+ years of program or organizational change management experience in support of large-scale process and technology projects
  • 5+ years of direct people management experience
  • Experience in full life-cycle ERP implementations (Oracle, SAP or PeopleSoft)
  • Deep understanding of Order to Cash and Procure to Pay processes
  • Experience with a full life cycle of user-based innovation (applying design thinking or UX principles)
  • Experience in large, complex, and dynamic corporate environments managing technology and process change efforts

We’d love to see

  • Ability to influence and lead with and without authority
  • Strong planning and organization skills
  • Experience across the areas of sponsorship, communications, change networks, training and organization readiness
  • Leadership facilitation experience to drive senior-level alignment for change
