Delivery Manager, Project Manager - Change and Transformation Projects - Reigate - £525 PD

An excellent opportunity has arisen with an excellent brand for a Delivery Manager for a 6 Month contract. You will be responsible for the management of change to deliver the capabilities or solutions required to meet the company's strategic objectives.

The role reports directly to a Programme Manager and is positioned within the Change team, which is in turn part of the delivery function. The assignments for the jobholder will be under the direction of a Programme Manager or Head of Agile Delivery (who may not be their line manager). The assignments are pan business and are often a mix of Business and Technology.

The jobholder needs to be able to influence and drive activity without the benefit of line management responsibility. The jobholder will maintain a close relationship with key stakeholders to understand and manage their expectations.

Role of the Delivery Manager:
• Assist in the collaborative, dynamic planning process - understanding the work that needs to be done against the capacity and capability of the team
• Manage effective delivery of change, using the appropriate agile methodology, learning and iterating frequently which enables the benefits/value identified to be realised as early as possible.
• Build and maintain effective relationships within the Value Stream(s), the business, key stakeholders and wider teams.
• Adhere to change governance whilst ensuring that the final deliverables meet the customer's goals and outcomes.
• Proactively manage cross-functional work and dependencies.
• Identify and proactively manage key risks and blockers and escalate where appropriate in a timely manner.
• Ensure appropriate metrics/KPIs for delivery are accessible and visible.
• Actively participate in the community of practice - sharing, re-applying skills and knowledge and introducing good practice.
