Position Title: Global Head of Data Migration

Company: WPP

Location: England

Job Description:

At WPP, technology is at the heart of everything we do, and it is WPP IT’s mission to enable everyone to collaborate, create and thrive. WPP IT is undergoing a significant transformation to modernise ways of working, shift to cloud and micro-service-based architectures, drive automation, digitise colleague and client experiences and deliver insight from WPP’s petabytes of data.


  • In this role you will be a member of the Cross Platform Services team, where you will provide hands on Data Migration leadership for all programmes and projects on several different platforms.
  • You will be responsible for implementing and owning a clear strategy for the migration of a range of data from multiple source systems onto new consolidated platforms.
  • This will range from ensuring data in source systems is reviewed to ensure the data is of high quality for migrating, as well as implementing reusable tools and processes for extracting, transforming and loading this data into the new destination systems.


  • Workday @Scale is a large-scale programme that will replace some of our core technology and also influence the ways of working for many of our colleagues at WPP.
  • This flagship programme will see Workday deployed across our global landscape to address the technology needs of Finance, Projects and our People function – so essentially it touches all of our employees to some degree.
  • The key to this programme is that technology is an enabler for change, it’s at the heart of what we do, but it’s not all of what we do.
