You’ll be a key part of one of the UK’s biggest and most high-profile digital transformation programmes, a once-in-a-generation reform of government products and services.

Here you’ll use a variety of agile and lean tools and techniques to maintain a delivery and learning cadence that helps your team remain focused on delivering value against the product/project vision.

On a day-to-day basis, you’ll lead collaborative planning processes, prioritising the work that needs to be done against the capacity and capability of the team. This might include facilitating daily stand-ups and other sprint ceremonies, and coaching teams on Agile tools and techniques.
