About the vacancy

    As senior Delivery Manager, you’ll be working in a team of digital specialists creating complex, high-risk products and services that improve underlying business processes and the systems facilitating them. These products are used across all areas of the organisation and the businesses we work with.
    Your role will be to manage delivery of the products through project management: understanding what needs to be done and tracking delivery. You’ll work with the delivery team to improve performance and make sure they are set up for success.

Key Competencies

    You’ll have experience leading cross-functional teams across complex and multiple digital service design projects within a portfolio.
    You know how to communicate with your team and key stakeholders to improve processes and performance, and you’re a problem-solver by nature – you understand team dynamics and how to fix them.
