If you would like to join a growing company with a strong ethos of mutual support and enjoy the challenges of professional consultancy within traditional, new and changing service delivery environments, then I would like to hear from you.

This is NOT a role for a service desk manager looking to ‘step up’; nor will you have been a service delivery manager within one or two companies – you are likely to have had exposure to many market sectors and to have worked on a variety of projects across many lines of service.

Businesses are driving their IT to improve ‘traditional’ Service Delivery Management and evolve the organisation to deliver greater business benefit through the use of Agile, Lean and DevOps and by exploiting new technology such as Digital, Cloud and ‘as a service’ platforms to further enhance IT business value, thus driving Service Delivery change. My client is therefore looking to expand the consultancy base to meet this upward trend in demand and meet this new challenge head on. My client has its head office in London but consultancy work is undertaken throughout the UK.
