Agile Delivery Practice Lead

Comic Relief is one of the UK’s best loved brands and organiser of two of the country’s largest fundraising campaigns. Behind all the fun and excitement of Red Nose Day and Sport Relief is a serious business that is working to create a just world free from poverty.

We are now transforming the role of technology within the organisation and are looking for an Agile Delivery Practice Lead to help change the way we deliver all our public facing digital properties to support our ambitious goals.

This role is perfect for a talented Scrum Master or Delivery Manager who has the desire to step up to a more strategic role. A key figure in our Digital Product Development (DPD) team, you will work closely with the leads for Engineering, Product and UX to ensure consistent delivery of value to our users and the business. You will ensure agile ways of working are embedded across our cross-functional development teams, and create a culture of continuous improvement. This is more than just working with one team, but instead deciding how we structure our software teams to effectively deliver what we want as a product development function.

As an advocate of the Agile mindset you will not be wedded to a specific methodology, but instead be keen to apply your knowledge of varied agile techniques and principles to the situation. You will also be excited about coaching the stakeholders about why we work with an Agile mindset, and how this can bring benefits to them and the rest of the organisation. Facilitation of retrospectives and complex planning sessions should come naturally to you, and you will be skilled at getting teams and team members to work collaboratively together, to achieve the best outcomes for the organisation.
