We design, build, operate and improve digital public services

We’re looking for someone to join the team as a Delivery Lead on a fixed term contract for up to 12 months. As a Delivery Lead at dxw, your leadership, organisation skills and problem solving will help our teams deliver great work.

You’ll work closely with clients and colleagues to build a single multidisciplinary, agile team. You will lead client facing projects and be responsible for keeping the team motivated and focused on the product vision and user needs throughout.

You’ll help the team to self reflect and improve over time, for example by facilitating regular retrospectives. You’ll empower them to self organise and deliver at a sustainable pace. And you will help our clients embed agile principles and practices in the organisations they work in.

Delivery leads at dxw are also involved in contributing to sales bids and proposals, and maintaining relationships with existing clients.

This is a billable role and you will spend 4-5 days a week working on client facing projects. Projects will vary in size and style, but often will follow the phases described in the GOV.UK service manual. You’ll typically work on 1-2 projects at a time.

Outside of project work there will be opportunities to contribute to other areas of dxw and internal projects. This might include contributing to client proposals, helping to reduce our carbon emissions or supporting our diversity and inclusion work.

You can learn more about how we do delivery at dxw by reading our playbook.

About us
dxw works with the public and third sectors to create user focussed services and products that improve lives.

We’ve been around since 2008 and worked on lots of projects that have made a real difference – things like helping to track aid spending and looking at how to improve digital collaboration between local authorities.

We are looking for a Delivery Lead to help us create products and services to achieve this mission. We think it’s important to have diverse teams and aim to create an environment where everyone is supported to do their best and be themselves.

About you
We’re looking for someone who cares about building public services that work well for the people who rely on them.

You know how to bring together a multidisciplinary team of developers, designers, researchers and others to understand and solve a problem. You use empathy to get the best out of each team member and help the team perform. You keep teams focused on outcomes, so they provide value to clients.

You understand how to use a variety of agile tools and techniques to keep projects moving at a sustainable pace.

You’re comfortable making quick, pragmatic decisions in a way that balances the needs of the team, project and client.

Salary & terms
£45,000 –  £58,000, depending on experience.

You can be based anywhere in the UK. Some travel (a few times a month) to meet our clients across the UK would be useful, but not mandatory, when restrictions are lifted.

There is a high degree of flexibility for people looking for a part-time role or a role with flexible hours.

Benefits include

  • Annual £750 personal learning and development allowance
  • Interest-free season ticket loans and cycle to work scheme
  • 12 weeks paid maternity leave, 3 weeks paid paternity leave, with a shared parental leave option
  • 25 days holiday plus bank holidays
  • Pension with up to 5% matching employer contribution

This role will close on Wednesday 13th January, 2021.
