About the role
As a Scrum Master you will work closely with both feature team members and the wider engineering and business community including Product Owners, Delivery Leads, Architects, and a range of shared teams, to deliver business value using standard agile methods. You’ll coach one of the feature teams in the art of agile delivery and instil a continuous improvement approach.
The pace and scale of change taking place requires a passion for new thinking, new ideas and continuous improvement, as well as a flexible approach when interacting with wider teams.
For us, Scrum Masters are essential to smooth working in the lab and are a key part of our wider leadership team, helping to make Ledger Lab a great place to work.
As part of our Scrum Master team:
You’ll be championing new ways of working as we shape our Bank of the Future.
You’ll operate collaboratively, be a change pioneer with a passion for working to help people and teams deliver their best work, and improve facilitation of change, using agile methodologies.
You’ll support our teams in understanding agile theory, practices, rules, and values and translating this into practice.
You’ll facilitate and help the team to become self-organised and focused on delivering the outcome for the customer, and train and mentor colleagues, to help maximise the value created by the Team.
About You – Essential Skills, Qualifications and Experience
We believe that people don’t fit neatly into roles, and we value everyone’s individual skills, experience, and knowledge – it’s what makes you phenomenal. As such, we encourage applications from different backgrounds. As a minimum however, you should be able to demonstrate:
Hands-on experience as a Scrum Master preferably with a Professional Scrum Master Qualification (at least at level 1, but ideally at level 2);
Strong agile method experience, preferably in a software engineering environment;
Strong experience of using tools to enable continuous improvement and metrics to improve the flow of work;
A desire to adopt new ways of working to reduce the risk of ‘big bang’ deliveries, unblocking issues using your own judgement and initiative;
An ability to adapt, be dynamic and challenge the status quo when relevant, bringing stakeholders with you in a journey of change.
You’ll be fully supported in understanding our change approach, building networks across the organisation, and developing the foundations for a successful and exciting career. It is a great time to join the team – where our vision is to end every day better than the last.
The role offers the chance to create new products and capabilities, shape new ways of working and have an impact across the bank. Our continued commitment to helping Britain recover means that as a colleague you can make a difference to customers, businesses, and communities. We promote an inclusive, collaborative and encouraging environment- it’s one of the many things our colleagues love about working with us!
We deeply value diversity and are proudly committed to being an equal opportunity employer. You can come and join our inclusive, values-led culture passionate about making a difference!
Together we have a key role to play in shaping the bank of the future, whilst the scale and reach of our Group means you’ll continue to have opportunities to learn, grow and develop.
