What the job involves

This is an exciting new role with an opportunity to really make your mark. You’ll be sharing your expertise in Agile and coaching a range of people and projects in the best way to adopt that way of working. We are currently running a few pilot projects using Agile and you will play a key role in helping other projects realise the benefits of the different elements of the toolkit. Sometimes that will involve training whole groups of people in the basics or working with specific teams to get them started and following up, to working one-to-one with product owners or scrum masters to develop their skills and understanding further. You’ll also be the lead on how we use Agile as an organisation, setting the framework and guidance for making the most of a new mindset.

 

What we want from you

A good, practical understanding of Agile with a pragmatic approach to implementing it across a range of different, non-technical projects. We’re not all going to be scrum masters overnight but if you can help us understand the mindset and which ceremonies and tools are most suited for different situations then we can all benefit from working in this way. You’re passionate about helping people to realise a change to the way they work and can help them see the end goal, even when it feels like it’s getting further away. You are comfortable giving talks and training to large groups and building up one-to-one coaching relationships across a diverse skillset. You are tenacious and know how to negotiate with people to make them make time for learning and can sell the benefits of Agile to persuade them to do so.

 

Why work for us?

We have a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer. Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support, we can make prostate cancer a disease the next generation of men need not fear. Be part of a team that will put an end to prostate cancer being a killer.

 

The support we’ll provide

Join our team and you’ll be working at an award-winning charity that will help you learn, develop your skills and expertise, and achieve your highest aspirations. We provide everything you’d expect from a professional organisation – competitive benefits package, contributory pension scheme, life insurance and a season ticket loan – but much more besides. Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we fight for a better future for men.
