Brief overview of the business areas
The focus of Third Party Services is to identify, partner and build products and relationships with third party software providers that that solve particular problems that benefit HSBC and its customers.
The team is focused across various capabilities designed to firstly evaluate vendor solutions quickly and if suitable, to then implement that product in a highly usable, scalable way and finally to manage the various products and services offered to internal consuming business units.
One of the most complex challenges is to then onboard that vendor and to get their solutions into the organisation. The project manager will be at the forefront of driving the internal processes required to get the vendor solution through our various governance stages.
All solutions the team offers will be underpinned by a vendor’s solution – so getting the vendor onboarded into the bank in a timely manner is crucial. This role will drive that process.
