Data Governance Manager

As a Barclays Data Governance Manager, you'll be responsible for defining our data standards, establishing our governance frameworks and processes, maintaining our governance roadmap, promoting our data management agenda, monitoring our progress, and ensuring that we deliver to our commitments. For this role, you will keep the whole team focused on the benefits of excellent data governance, negotiate the capacity to accommodate our governance efforts, and effectively influence the data delivery roadmap against competing requirements.

Barclays is one of the world's largest and most respected financial institutions, with 329 years of success, quality, and innovation behind us. We offer careers that provide endless opportunity - helping millions of individuals and businesses thrive and creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted.

We are currently in the early stages of implementing a hybrid working environment, which means that many colleagues spend part of their working hours at home and part in the office, depending on the nature of the role they are in. We're flexible on how this works and it may continue to change and evolve. Depending on your team, typically this means that colleagues spend a minimum of between 20% to 60% of their time in the office, which could be over a week, a month, or a quarter. However, some colleagues may choose to spend more time in the office over a typical period than their role type requires. We also have a flexible working process where, subject to business needs, all colleagues globally can request work patterns to reflect their personal circumstances. Please discuss the detail of the working pattern options for the role with the hiring manager.
