Who you’ll be working with

The UK Government is one of the most digitally advanced in the world, recently coming top of the 2016 United Nations E-Government and E-Procurement surveys. Despite the progress, citizens feel that the country works for those who govern and not for citizens themselves. People want a more responsive state, they want change and they want it at pace and at scale. UK Government has a bold IT vision based on user centric design, agile development, open source software, continuous delivery, infrastructure automation, cloud computing and a DevOps culture. What it needs is people to help put this vision into practice. What it needs is people like you.   

Capgemini, along with its clients, creates and delivers digital solutions that fit their user needs, delivering innovation, competitiveness and high levels of user satisfaction. We specialise in agile custom software development and integration at an enterprise scale. Our vision is to help our customers achieve their digital transformation objectives by providing innovative digital integration, insight, expertise and solutions.

As a Capgemini Public Sector Digital Delivery Manager you will join the Capgemini Public Sector Digital Unit supporting a number of major Public Sector clients. Primarily working with agile delivery teams, you will be working in ways that are starting to define the industry, as well as work with excellent engineers, who are at the forefront of technology.

The focus of your role

We’re excited to be offering this opportunity for a Digital Delivery Manager to join our rapidly expanding team, working at the forefront of technology at various locations throughout the UK. You will create, manage and continuously improve one or more digital services utilising agile and lean principles and methodologies, via a number of multi-disciplinary, highly skilled digital teams. You will work with product managers and the delivery team to establish delivery priorities and plans, manage risks and dependencies, and remove blockers. You will have great stakeholder management skills, enabling you to build good relationships and communicate effectively. You’ll be adept at delivering complex projects, breaking down barriers for your team and dealing with escalations.

What you’ll do

You’ll be working for one of our major Public Sector clients. These include: HM Revenue and Customs, Department for Work and Pensions, The Home Office, Ministry of Justice, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Department for Education and the NHS amongst others, with locations in Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Blackpool, Croydon, Telford, central London and the South East and many others. Working on site with a client can provide considerable benefits to a project, such as faster decision making, reduced misunderstanding and closer collaboration, but we also understand very well that this has to be balanced with the need for flexible working.
