Job Description

 

Fancy joining a global organisation that is revolutionising the digital landscape? Today, as clients across industries are moving from digitally extending their businesses to placing digital at the core, Publicis.Sapient has an unprecedented opportunity to help them succeed.  

 

What are we looking for in you? 

We are looking for smart, curious people who are eager to learn and broaden their skill sets. We want people who are innovative, flexible and have an adaptable mindset where they are continuously thinking about how they can improve. This role requires individuals to empower and motivate their team in order to bring about successful change. 

 

You will pride yourself in being a confident facilitator working with diverse, technically strong and distributed teams focused on facilitating scrum ceremonies and enacting change and continuous improvement to increase the productivity of the team, quality of deliverables and value delivered.  

 

We have fully-connected teams delivering large-scale end to end digital transformation programmes to clients and you will be at the heart of ensuring team execution and delivery to committed sprint work guiding and coaching self-organising, cross-functional feature teams using scrum whilst maintaining a balance by protecting the team from over-commitment. 

 

There may be projects in which scrum is not yet fully adopted and understood and you will be able to coach the team to work towards this in addition to working with other Scrum Masters to increase the effectiveness of the application of scrum in the organization. You will love driving change! 

Qualifications

Do you have the following? 

  • Proven experience as a Scrum Master who has run agile delivery 

  • Core project management capabilities 

  • Experience running Scrum or Kanban for feature teams or component teams 

  • A Delivery mindset owning the end to end process 

  • Experience of facilitating agile/scrum ceremonies (ie stand ups, backlog refinements, agile retrospectives, sprint reviews), decision making, and conflict resolution 

  • A solid background of working with Product Owners, the delivery team and the stakeholders to ensure common priorities, manage dependencies and remove impediments 

  • Experience of identifying, managing, helping and mitigating project issues and risks 

  • Experience of leading diverse teams (ie multiple domains, across geographies, potential partners involved) to deliver integrated client solutions that achieve measurable business results for our clients 

  • Looking for continuous improvement for you and the people you are working with  

  • Ability to influence and manage your clients internally and externally  

What's in it for you? 

 

An array of benefits await you at Publicis.Sapient! 25 days paid annual leave, life assurance, dental insurance, income protection, private healthcare for you AND your family (pre-existing conditions included), and a pension is the least we want to provide to you.  

 

The learning opportunities here are endless (our Knowledge Exchange Day called “KED” is a conference by and for the consultants where everybody is involved as a speaker or as a participant) and of course the opportunity to be part of a game-changing organisation that encourages outside-the-box thinking and empowerment to know that the world is your oyster when it comes to your career!  

 

Flexibility and mobility is required to deliver this role as there may be requirements to spend time on site with our clients to enable delivery of the first class services we pride ourselves in.
