About the role

The vision is to empower teams to deliver increasingly more value, sooner with less work. The purpose is that by using agile principles, values, and mindset, we work hard to create an environment of autonomy, mastery and purpose where teams can unlock their high performing potential to solve customers’ problems. The focus of the role is working directly as a Scrum Master with individual teams (10-15 people) where you will continually improve the ways of working and environment in order that the team/s can perform at their best to deliver value and quality to the customer. You should have excellent knowledge of the scrum framework, with all its artifacts and techniques. You’ll also need the ability to coordinate people and projects (occasionally facilitating changes) with your mind set on deliverables. If you’re a strong communicator, a capable leader and you’re invested in Agile frameworks, we’d like to meet you.

Main responsibilities are:

  • Coordinate sprints, retrospective meetings, and daily stand-ups
  • Coach team members in Agile frameworks
  • Facilitate internal communication and effective collaboration
  • Be the point of contact for external communications (e.g., from customers or stakeholders)
  • Resolve conflicts and remove obstacles that occur
  • Ensure deliverables are up to quality standards at the end of each sprint
  • Guide development teams to higher scrum maturity
  • Help build a productive environment where team members ‘own’ the product and enjoy working on it


Also, we want you to be responsible for planning, leading, organising, and motivating the agile teams to achieve a high level of performance and quality in line with programme standards. You will also be responsible for software delivery using agile methods in a fast-paced environment that may cross multiple business divisions.


As well as the technical aspects of the role you will also be expected to manage agile teams on a daily basis or as required; assist in team development while holding teams accountable for their commitments, removing roadblocks to their work; leveraging organisational resources to improve capacity for project work; responsibility for ensuring team members track their time using the appropriate in-house system; and mentoring and developing team members. You will be part of the wider Agile Practice, where you will drive initiatives in line with our purpose to continually improve agility across the Technology department and the wider enterprise.
