Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive, by making our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Because, we’re not just home to the UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind. This is an exciting time to take on the role of Lead Delivery Manager in the Strategy and Policy Design team – the team is growing and has a mission to deliver change fast and embed human centred design within Camden’s DNA, supporting us to deliver 21st century, relational services based on a clear understanding of citizens’ needs.
We are looking for a highly experienced and passionate agile delivery manger to help us mobilise and deliver major programmes of change, supported by a growing service design, policy design and research capability. You will grip and organise a strategic work programme across our wider design family (including digital products and organisational design) helping maintain delivery momentum across key projects covering debt and financial hardship, housing allocations, and safeguarding.
As Lead Delivery Manager you will support team members to deliver at pace, maintaining agile rhythms, and coaching staff with different levels of experience in design and agile environments.
This role offers opportunities to help the team and wider organisation embed agile practice as part of a growing design community, strongly linked to the Council’s strategy family. You will be a leading light in the development of a delivery management community in Camden, showing the value it can bring by getting things done and building a thriving community of practice.
We’re looking for an experience agile practitioner, who enjoys building teams and mobilising new programmes of work and course correcting where that is necessary. You will be delivery focused, but won’t be a purist, and will be excited about taking an agile approach across the cycle of policy development into real change on the ground for residents.
You will help to build a diverse, learning team that brings a range of skills and disciplines together to support the organisation.
