There’s no other organisation quite like the Phoenix Group. 95% of our people said: “I would tell people that this is a great place to work”. We are a highly regarded financial services organisation and have been ‘Britain’s Top Employer’ for the last 6 consecutive years.  We have a Premium Listing on the London Stock Exchange and is a member of the FTSE 250 index. The Group is a closed life assurance fund consolidator that specialises in the management and acquisition of closed life and pension funds. This is a superb opportunity to help shape the future of the ‘Business Continuity’ delivery model in a stimulating and challenging environment.

About the role: 

Due to the nature of our business we must have suitable plans in place to manage emergency, crisis and business interruption events. Having such plans and capability in place means that we are able to continue our critical functions if they are interrupted unexpectedly. This is a key role reporting into our Head of Business Continuity and Site Services, and you will support all areas of the retained business with the development, review and testing of their business continuity plans and capability. You will manage the risk of business interruption within Phoenix’s supply chain through regular oversight of each supplier’s level of business continuity preparedness. There is no line management involved in the role, you will a virtual team of business continuity champions across the business and your efforts will be focused on providing expert professional advice, guidance, assistance and central business continuity support across elements of the lifecycle.

Other responsibilities include:

  • Supporting the retained IT team, where appropriate, to schedule, deliver and report on the business continuity element of off-site recovery sites, ensuring full business engagement and user-testing as required.
  • Instilling confidence and cultivating relationships with the Group’s leadership team and external parties, ensuring on-going buy-in and long term commitment to Business Continuity.
  • Overseeing and constructively reviewing/challenging the risk of business interruption within the supply-chain, and producing monthly MI reports on the business continuity status of 3rd party suppliers.

What we’re looking for: 

  • An output focussed business continuity professional with strong relationship management skills.
  • Significant and relevant expertise in having delivered Business Continuity programmes to British and International standards e.g. BS25999 or ISO 22301.
  • Understanding risk and business continuity issues from a financial services background or similarly regulated industry ideally.
  • An excellent level of technical know-how, covering the full ‘end to end’ business continuity delivery lifecycle, backed by a good grasp of IT Disaster Recovery / IT Services Continuity Management.
  • Strong stakeholder management skills at all levels, plus the ability to instil confidence in senior managers, gaining their buy-in to all concepts of business continuity planning.
  • Proven experience in the oversight of 3rd party supplier chains and determining their levels of preparedness in terms of business continuity. 

About us:

We value our employees highly and have been Britain's Top Employer for the last 6 consecutive years and are a member of the FTSE 250 index.  We put people first in everything we do and are always looking for new professionals to join our talented team.  Our funds are closed, enabling us to focus on areas that other businesses can't.  This means that, among the many benefits of working at Phoenix (such as free lunches at our onsite restaurant, nature trail walk, putting green, free car parking, subsidised onsite sport facilities including gym, football & cricket pitches, tennis courts,excellent rewards schemes….we could go on!), our staff can enjoy exposure to a diverse workload not found elsewhere.  We're proud of what we do, and we've recently gained recognition for our distinctive business model.  We offer excellent training opportunities, career development and company culture.
