Technology Delivery Managers oversee the projects providing digital solutions to some of the Home Office’s highest priorities. They help the department realise its ambitions to transform the delivery of public services through technology.
Technology Delivery Managers work in product-focused teams to deliver end-to end services and to support those using them. This way of working enables flexibility, creativity, and a team ethos, working to deliver shared outcomes that improve services impacting the lives of millions of people.
We expect our Technology Delivery Managers to have knowledge in project, relationship, commercial and financial management, as well as experience in managing risks, quality processes, continuous improvement and governance. Across the Home Office, we have a huge amount of technical delivery experience from people with different backgrounds who are experts in many delivery methodologies. We provide ways of working and key principles for them to use, but we rely on their knowledge and experience to get the best out of their teams to keep projects on track.
There are two roles in the Technology Delivery Management community:
Technology Delivery Manager
Working closely with a product manager you will have responsibility for a single multi-disciplinary delivery team working to deliver a product within agreed timescales, to budget and of the required quality. You will use your experience to make decisions on the appropriate delivery methodology. You will lead your team and also liaise with a variety of stakeholders, often translating technical concepts into non-technical language.
Technology Outcome Delivery Manager
Your focus will be managing coordination across multiple technical delivery teams to deliver a product or service for the business. You will have to manage risks and dependencies across technical and business areas and keep key stakeholders informed of progress. You will also be responsible for making sure cross-cutting governance mechanisms are in place, facilitating decisions and removing blockers to ensure successful delivery.
