As Delivery Manager, you will provide effective delivery management for the Shopping Tribe, to ensure the effective delivery of a programme of initiatives and product changes. You will manage the delivery for the Shopping Tribe, to enable them to deliver towards a shared vision and OKRs.

You behave consistently and with integrity at all times, realising everyone’s potential to get the best possible results. Furthermore, you are proactive, highly motivated and a self-starter with a personal drive for continuous development.
Adding to that, you also have and can demonstrate:
- Extensive experience in managing delivery teams, potentially using agile and scaled agile models or structures
- Technical understanding and competence
- Ability to manage complex internal and external dependencies, to plan the sequence of work across squads, and understand dependencies outside of your area
