Scrum Master

Large sector organisation looking to drive savings within its procurement operations

Need to develop an accurate and forward looking data capability to help the organisation increase the savings it delivers and to allow accurate communication of those savings to its customer base.

The organisation is under significant pressure to be able to accurately demonstrate the savings it makes for the overall government department. The pressure effectively amounts to the organisation having to justify its own existence.

The need is to bring in new resources beyond the existing project team to deliver new ways of working and to start the development of a new data platform and analytics to support the organisation going forward.

It is expected that the work will be delivered over 18 months

Scrum Master required to lead savings project workstreams in an agile approach across a multi-billion pound business with hundreds of customers.

Key skills required

Significant experience of managing projects through an agile approach

Ability to coach inexperienced team members in agile ways of working

Experience of data focused business intelligence projects

Experience of supply chain and procurement projects

The team members will be part of a scrum team that will operate a suitable range of agile ceremonies and deliver into the production environment with a devops approach.

The team will predominantly be based at client site, but home working occasionally would be acceptable.
