Job Role

Our banking client has two core banking systems that will be wound down over the next five years as they transfer everything to another platform – TEMENOS T24. The two key Legacy Systems are the Core Accounting and Customer Information File system.

The Core Accounting is made up of the Batch Processing System, referred to Branch Accounting, and the Accounting interface to the direct channels for Branch, ATM and Digital, referred to as Online Accounting. The Branch Accounting System is entirely PL/1 with ISAM File Systems. Online Accounting is also PL/1 based and uses a combination of IMS Hierarchical Databases and DB2 Relational Databases. The systems are very robust and unlikely to cause any operational problems.

How the Legacy Systems work is well documented in System and Program Specifications despite their age. File and Database Specifications are also well documented, There are Operational Manuals also.

*NB: All applicants CVS will be reviewed and should your skillset match our client’s requirements, we will contact you via email / mobile. We are also happy to consider you for other open opportunities within Firstaff. If however, you object to us holding your data on file, please acknowledge via email by return.*
