Experience in leading software development activities is required to be successful in the role. You have experience in managing team leads, project leads,… Ideally in a complex context where stakeholder management is essential. Experience in subject matter: social secretariat, HR, and/or the technologies used is a plus, not a requirement. Experience in resource planning, budget management, prioritisation, process improvement and innovation is necessary.

You have an energetic and optimistic nature. With a pragmatic and people-oriented approach, you can grow your team in a positive way.

In other words, the role holder will have many opportunities and the ability to bring added value in various fields.

The development team makes up almost half of the IT & Digital team and thus has a very large role in the organisation. In this team, very high added value is therefore created for the entire company. 

Naturally, you can also count on an attractive financial package with a wide range of fringe benefits such as company car, insurance package, net expense allowance, meal vouchers, bonus system, etc.
