IT Delivery Manager

As the IT Delivery Manager, you will be responsible for IT delivery from review & acceptance of elaborated requirements, through to handover of solutions to SIT and UAT. A key part of this will be to drive software development best practice and ensure KPIs are well defined and fully met.

This role has arisen due to current issues within the project. There are a number of third parties suppliers within the workstream and we are looking for someone with a tenacious and assertive approach to supplier management and delivery.

You will be responsible for :-

  • Managing the Design and delivery of IT work packages, taking ownership for the development lifecycle.

  • Creating & maintaining detailed delivery plans, aligned to project deliveries.
  • Delivering the base-lined costs. This includes an effective Estimate Challenge process.
  • Managing resource scheduling and conflicts, escalating to IT Delivery Lead and appropriate Programme Stakeholders.
  • Refining the development approach for the team and ensuring adherence to the agreed SDLC (Agile/Scrum and Waterfall) and supporting toolset (including JIRA) across all deliveries
  • Reporting on Work package progress.

The desired candidate will have :-

  • Hands-on experience of the full Software Delivery Lifecycle (ideally in both waterfall and agile models).
  • Experience of managing IT deliveries in complex (i.e. multi-project, multi-system) environments.
  • Prior management, supervisory and/or team leadership experience.
  • Experience of managing vendor relationships, ideally including offshore partners.
  • A diligent, data-driven approach - committed to continual assessment and improvement.
  • You will possess a strong technical aptitude.
