Agile Team Coach ( 3 - 6 months Contract Role)

London, United Kingdom

Description

Our opportunity:

We’re a small and supportive community of Coaches, and we’re looking for a passionate, experienced and delivery-focused Lean and Agile expert to join us.

As part of our Coach Team your role will be varied. You'll be responsible for effective product delivery, whilst contributing to the improvement of our delivery processes. You'll create great team dynamics, and help individuals grow both personally and professionally. You will also use your project management skills to monitor and report project budgets and manage senior stakeholder's expectations.

So, if you have plenty of experience with supporting teams of various sizes, using a variety of Agile and Lean approaches, delight in building cohesive well-functioning teams and want to be part of a collaborative and dynamic culture that puts people in the centre, then we'd love to hear from you.

Requirements

Agile Product Delivery - You’ve supported full product delivery cycles, from discovery to handover, and can demonstrate that a variety of Agile tools and practices have been central to the delivery of high quality products.

Team Dynamics - You understand the characteristics of high performing teams and have a wide variety of tools available to you to help drive/guide a team towards greater dynamics, collaboration and effectiveness.

Stakeholder Relationships - You’re able to cultivate and grow meaningful relationships with clients and external stakeholders, encourage engagement and alignment of expectations, help them influence and drive change within their own organisation and empathise with the challenges they are facing.

Continuous Improvement - You’re continuously looking for ways to improve delivery processes and eager to learn more about better ways of building teams and products.

Encouraging Growth - You recognise that it’s often the unsaid that holds us back, so you champion a culture of encouraging constructive feedback – both by providing individual feedback and coaching to team members and requesting it for your own development.

Commercial Acumen - You have a strong understanding of the commercial aspect of building a product and feel comfortable managing budgets and optimising return on investment, as well as working with the commercial team to develop contracts, budgets and Scope of Work documents.

Role-Modeling - You role-model the principles and values that you stand for and look to foster the same within your teams.
