You'll use your agile expertise to build a culture of continuous improvement with high performing teams.

You'll promote user-centred design, applying it to the software development lifecycle.

It's a complex landscape and you'll need your skills as a persuasive and engaging communicator. You'll solve cross-cutting problems and use your experience of delivery to get the job done.

You'll work in a multidisciplinary team with the Product Manager and the Tech Lead, creating prototypes to validate concepts within tight timeframes and collaborate with stakeholders.

What skills, knowledge and experience will you need?

  • You'll have experience of delivering software in an agile environment in multiple phases with an understanding of Agile principles and practices.
  • Ability to promote a culture of psychological safety in teams, managing team dynamics.
  • You will have experience of coaching and developing others, taking ownership of your own development.

You'll join us in our digital hub in Westminster, London.

We also have all the tools and tech we need to enable our people to work flexibly. We work a hybrid model, so you can expect to be in the office some of the time and at home some of the time.

In return for your skills, we offer competitive pay of up to £75,748.

You'll be eligible for a brilliant civil service pension with employer contributions of 28.97%, worth up to £20,000 a year.
