Senior Manager, Data Governance


Lead the implementation of data governance on a leading-edge data platform that will support Macquarie Asset Management’s business activities for years to come.

Data governance is at the heart of our data strategy and we need your minimum 5 years of data management experience in a finance, insurance, or other corporate environment to make it a success. Delivery of our new data platform with clean, trusted, and accessible data is critical to many of our key business initiatives.

In this role you will lead the establishment of a global data governance framework for Macquarie Asset Management including principles, policies, change management, and data ownership models, in line with Macquarie’s enterprise standards. 

You will also drive the implementation of data governance by chairing the data working groups, presenting at the data governance steering committee, and guiding a team of business analysts, data architect and data modelers. You will work with a diverse group of data producers, data consumers, data stewards and senior executives to drive alignment to our data principles and design models, processes and controls. This is a global role and will require collaboration with stakeholders in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific.

As Senior Manager for Data Governance, you will oversee the establishment and maintenance of key data governance artefacts including data dictionary, data models, data quality controls, and data lineage. You will also be responsible for improving other data management capabilities, including data quality assurance, incident management, and issue management, and change management.
