These tools include, Jira, Github, Confluence, Slack and Gitlab.

Who should apply?
Because this role is so unique and there is scope for variety of different skillsets to come in, this role could be suitable for someone coming from a pure Software Development Management background, wanting to move away from pure Product Delivery and into a role that was more consultative and coaching focused. It could also be suitable for a Software Engineer wanting to move across from a pure Development and coding based role. Other roles that people may have backgrounds in may be; Scrum Masters, Business Analysts, Service Delivery Managers, CTO’s, Subject Matter Experts or even Application Support Manager or an Agile Coach… it just needs someone that has a variety of experiences and the maturity to consultant and coach rather than dictate to teams.

                     •               Encouraging correct documentation

Some of the skills required in this Software Development Consultant vacancy are as follows:
