In this role you will be reporting to the Director for Core (Network and Security) Infrastructure Services, in the Service Management department of Infrastructure & Onsite Services.
Role mission & context
The mission is to ensure that all Local Area Network (LAN), Wireless LAN (WLAN) and Data Center LAN (DC LAN) services globally are delivered according to contracted supplier obligations. The focus is to deliver business benefits by managing deliveries of services, in close collaboration with Volvo stakeholders and with the supplier(s). This can also involve contractual negotiations to modify, clarify or optimize the services provided by the main supplier and potentially with sub-suppliers, or other direct Volvo suppliers of infrastructure services, software or hardware.
The Service Delivery Leader monitors the actual services levels, controls that they are in line with targeted service levels, and manages corrective actions with the supplier. Also, the Service Delivery Leader oversees and participates in runtime process interactions with the supplier: releases and deployments, change management, escalation of incidents and problems, etc. The Service Delivery Leader is commercially responsible for service delivered by the supplier, which includes both budgeting and follow-up, notably approving all service volumes invoiced by the supplier. The Service Delivery Leader has mandate to block any wrong or unwarranted invoicing and to ensure it is being corrected, so as to comply with Volvo budgets and purchase orders.

  • Define, drive and engage in stakeholder interaction model and communication
