As part of an ongoing digital evolution programme, which has seen them introduce scaled Agile into their business and reorganise their delivery teams into the Squads, Tribes and Chapters model. Their practices are continuing to evolve with them increasingly moving their technology stack away from COTS platforms and monolithic architectures, to developing their own API driven services, based around AWS-hosted microservices.

You will recognise how to apply Lean Agile practices in a pragmatic fashion (not people who's head explodes if things are done exactly like the Agile manifesto suggests!) and be an expert in building consensus with your teams and the wider business.
The roles have a common requirement: a need to understand what good looks like with an Agile delivery model in practice BUT a recognition that this is a business on a journey and there is a process of maturity taking place here - sometimes you just need to 'get sh*t done'

- Excellent spoken & written communication skills
- Strong working knowledge of working in Scrum and/or Kanban.
- Knowledge of what good Agile should look like, but able to apply it pragmatically
- Capable of moving between operating as a Scrum Master facilitating the needs of squad, but also able to do things like manage team resources
