Delivery Manager/Scrum Master
Posted on May 5, 2020 by CV-Library
I am seeking an experienced Delivery Manager/Scrum Master to join a fantastic Agile delivery team in a well-known organisation based in Newport.
The successful candidate for this role will have demonstrable experience of working as a Scrum Master in a delivery focused Agile Development environment. You will have strong knowledge of the whole software development lifecycle, and will take full responsibility for running the Sprint ceremonies for the development team you will be working alongside. You will be a passionate advocate of Agile as a methodology, championing Agile as a way of working not just to the IT function but across the wider business.
In addition to the Scrum Master responsibilities you will be undertaking, there will also be a team leadership element to the role, so balancing this directive form of management with the autonomous Agile way of working will be an important part of the role. Our client appreciates that working as an Agile facilitator can contradict some of the more directive elements of line management required in this role but are confident that a working balance can be struck across these different priorities.
The role includes the following responsibilities:
-Develop, coach and mentor team members and others in all aspects of their role
-Be a champion of continuous improvement across Agile and DevOps teams
-Drive continued move towards professionalism within the Delivery function, addressing those directly where required
-Be prepared to channel data-driven decisions - seeking opportunities to use Management Information and make decisions and recommendations off the back of this
-Driving excellence and improvement across all areas of the delivery teams
This represents a great opportunity for the right Delivery Manager/Scrum Master to join a fantastic organisation with an open and welcoming culture. Flexible working hours, home working, and an extremely generous benefits package will be on offer for the right person.
The role is urgent and there has been a lot of interest in the position, so please apply immediately to avoid disappointment.
