CGI UK Careers - Scrum Master - FS

Position Description:

If you are an experienced Scrum Master who enjoys working as a part of a team and you want to be involved in building the future of financial services in the UK, we'd love to have a conversation with you.

Our financial services business unit is looking for talented Scrum Masters with strong practical experience to join us in working on a variety of engagements across our banking and financial services clients.

The work we do has a wide reach, helping make the everyday easier, for everyone. When you start your CGI story, not only will you be improving people's lives, you can be sure we'll do the same for you.

Alongside a competitive salary, we offer you access to our share scheme (3% + 3% matching) making you a member not just an employee. You also have the option to benefit from private medical and dental insurance, flexible retirement options and a cycle to work scheme.

As for the future? Be a successful part of our story and we'll support you in taking your career anywhere you want it to go.

Your future duties and responsibilities:

You will be joining a team striving for the highest quality and commitment in everything they do.

You will help to build key financial services systems, working in a fast-paced, agile environment. Expectations around the team you are part of will be high.

You will be responsible for facilitation of ceremonies and for coaching and supporting the team so that they become progressively more agile as they mature into a high performing cross functional team.

You will be able to demonstrate your experience and understanding of not just the theoretical aspects of agile, but also the practical and underlying fundamental agile principles, including how and why they work, and be able to apply that knowledge on a daily basis. Having knowledge and experience of different agile facilitation frameworks is useful, as is knowledge of different ways to scale up.

You will have experience working with teams that employ DevOps practices, that may be remote and geographically distributed; and you will understand the challenges and opportunities this type of working brings.

You will provide input to and participate in communities of practice; and will work hand in hand with Agile Coaches to influence and shape the organic growth and future direction of agile in our business unit.
