DWP. Digital with Purpose.

🚀 Are you a Delivery Manager with experience of the nitty gritty of delivering large complex Software Engineering projects?

🚀 Are you an Agile and Lean evangelist with the toolkit and methodologies needed to get the job done?

🚀 Do you want to apply your skills on a flagship programme that will change the way people interact with government and transform products and services used by millions of people?

DWP Digital offers uniquely challenging and fulfilling careers for people interested in using their skills to make a genuine difference to society. We're part of the UK's biggest government department, and along with 86,000 colleagues, we support 20 million people every day to help them to find work and save for their future.

Few other organisations globally provide the same opportunity to apply next-generation digital technology on a massive scale to issues which touch the lives of so many.

Delivery. Work. Projects.

You'll join DWP Digital as Senior Agile Delivery Manager. We want you to use all your skills and experience manage and deliver end-to-end, user-centred digital and technology projects and programmes.

Your first brief will be to lead and motivate a dynamic team that is delivering one of the department's largest programmes that serves millions of members of the public.

We don't pay lip service to agile in DWP Digital. We don't decorate our projects with the trappings of agile. It's key to what we do, we live it.

You will lead our talented multi-disciplinary teams to deliver products and services, using these agile values and practices. You're an agile expert. You'll share your knowledge with others across our teams, and help us use the right tools and techniques at the right time.

This is stimulating environment that encourages creative problem solving and offers real challenge and stretch in a unique context and with an extraordinary purpose and scale. We don't think there are many other Agile DM jobs like this out there.

What knowledge, skills and experience do you need?

  • Experience of a variety of delivery approaches, including at least two of scrum, Kanban, lean or a scaled agile framework
  • Experience of delivering software in more than one GDS phase, or private sector equivalents
  • Leading a team which uses modern software engineering methods
  • Leading a team which uses user-centred design
  • Knowledge of live support and service management practices.

*This role requires you to undergo Security Clearance if you do not already have it*

Details. Wages. Perks.

You'll join in your choice of one our brilliant digital hubs in Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle-upon-Tyne or Sheffield.

We also have all the tech and tools we need to work flexibly. Many of us are currently working from home due to Covid-19.

In return for your skills we offer competitive salary up to £59,589 brilliant civil service pension with employer contributions worth over 27%, and a generous leave package.

We also have a broad benefits package built around your work-life balance which includes:

  • Flexible working
  • Family friendly policies
  • Volunteering and charitable giving
  • Discounts and savings on shopping, fun days out and more
  • Interest-free loans to buy a bike or a season ticket, so it's even easier for you to get to work and start making a difference
  • Sports and social activities
  • Professional development, coaching, mentoring and career progression opportunities.
