  • Significant experience of Scrum and Prince2 methodologies, and proven application of these to successful delivery
  • Strong experience of methods, tools and planning used in digital and non-digital IT projects, including the lifecycle of customer-centred design, agile procurement and delivery.

  • Excellent understanding of the IT supplier market, and of best practice in managing supplier involvement in both agile and waterfall projects
  • Experience of managing financial budgets of up to £10m in total
  • Experience of managing matrix teams including third party suppliers and digital specialists
