Job description

If you’re creative and curious to learn, want to be empowered to make decisions and challenge the norm, and want to bring BIG ideas to a MASSIVE digital challenge then you’ll love it here. And we’d love to hear from you.

We’re looking for a Programme Manager with deep knowledge and experience of Agile to join our growing community of experts and become a key part of one of the biggest and highest-profile digital transformation programmes in the world.

As a Lead Agile Programme Manager, you will work at the centre of our trailblazing, Data & Analytics Agile Programme Team.

You will oversee the delivery leadership of a number of Data & Analytics related products and lead the individual Agile Delivery Managers attached to these products. You will ensure that the wheel of each of these co-dependent products continues to turn at the right pace, and that we achieve our goals by using the right tool or method from your Agile kitbag.

In DWP Digital we are diverse, we lead in driving change, we want you to be yourself at work, and we champion that every day. Come join us!

You and your role

You will be supporting several teams who cover a very diverse remit, all of whom are working to make our Digital services more data-driven.

You will be the lead in supporting engagement and co-ordinate delivery with other Change programmes – you are the focal point for this team. Your delivery managers will look to you, and you will remove barriers and clear the road ensuring delivery.

We need your skills and expertise and we’ll repay the favour by giving you exposure to working alongside Digital Performance Analysts, Data Scientists, Data Engineers, Software Engineers and the wider Engineering community.

Your role will be wide reaching and you’ll touch areas such as counter fraud and error compliance, helping reduce costs and differentiating services based on users needs.

We’ll also give you the tools you need to do the job right – Hybrid Hosting, Machine Learning, Data Visualisation, Big Data Processing, Microservices, the list is endless and you’ll have all of the latest technologies at your fingertips. These are exciting times to be part of Digital.

You should have experience in a number of varied and challenging environments. Shorter term appointments in a number of areas would be more beneficial than one area for a prolonged period of time. We’re looking for depth of experience over length of experience.

This is a real opportunity. Our Agile Delivery Managers will model and mould future ways of working, taking us from having teams that deliver services to teams that own and deliver outcomes without fear of failure.

If you’re anything like us you’ll be proud to say you work in DWP Digital. And like us you’ll believe in the transformational power of technology to help people across the UK, including some of the most vulnerable in society, achieve better outcomes.

What are we looking for?

Where you’ll work

You’ll join us in one of our brilliant digital hubs in London or Newcastle. The twin homes of our Data & Analytics team, these are modern, vibrant workplaces designed for and by members of our digital community. We provide the latest tech and tooling and foster a collaborative culture to help our agile, multidisciplinary teams think big and try new things.
