About The Role

Hippo is recruiting for Senior Delivery Managers to join our friendly consultancy. Delivery Managers work with our clients to embed agile ways of working and support your multi-disciplined teams to focus on the priorities to deliver the associated product or services.

As a Senior Consultant, specialising in Delivery, you’ll already be an expert in your field. You’ll also be a leader of people and teams and advocate for user-centred design approaches. Hippo will provide exciting opportunities to share your expertise with, and influence, clients and team members, and to continue to develop as a leader.

  • Identify obstacles and help the team to overcome them
  • Facilitate and track team risks and dependencies
  • Help the team to focus on the priorities to deliver the product or service
  • Encourage and facilitate continuous improvement of the delivery team
  • Coach and mentor team members and others to apply the most appropriate agile and lean tools and techniques
  • Build great relationships with your team and stakeholders
  • Line management of colleagues within your profession

People are at the centre of everything we do. We’re a diverse and close-knit community united by a love for solving complex problems for our clients and their users. We take a common sense approach to getting things done.

  • Perkbox access for a wide range of perks and discounts
  • Life assurance and death in service cover
