7 months ago
We’re a small and supportive community of Delivery Coaches, and we’re looking for a passionate, experienced and delivery-focused Agile PM/Coach familiar with early stage product development using the GDS model for delivery to join us for 3 months.
As part of our Coach Team your role will be varied. You'll be responsible for supporting the team in effective product delivery. You'll create great team dynamics, and help individuals grow both personally and professionally. You will also use your project management skills to handle team logistics, monitor and report project budgets, manage risks, and manage senior stakeholder's expectations, and generally keep things moving along smoothly. Lastly, ideally you’ll have agency-side experience.
So, if you’re comfortable supporting teams of 5-8 people, are experienced with the GDS Alpha/Beta/Launch model of product development, 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 this is probably the gig for you.
This project requires working in Manchester 3-days (Tue-Thu) every other week. The rest of the time will be working in the ustwo London studio.
Start Date: 6 January 2020
Product Discovery - You’re experienced in the early stages of product discovery and understand how that process moves through GDS Alpha/Beta/Lauch stages.
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, 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.
Positive and Upbeat - You bring a positive and enthusiastic spirit to everything you do. And you are good at infecting your teams with good vibes.
Role-Modeling - You role-model the principles and values that you stand for and look to foster the same within your teams.
