IT Assurance and Delivery consultant

Permanent • Business and Technology Consulting

IT Assurance and Delivery consultant for Defence and Security sector

Through some pretty slick innovation the business helps clients reduce the risks associated with their major IT delivery programmes by providing experts (like you) for key roles such as business analysis, solution and data architecture, systems engineering, Agile delivery and business change.

IT Assurance and Delivery Practice is built around four separate sub-services:

  • IT Delivery Partner - providing highly skilled individuals with experience, impact, technical and soft skills. Working as the Trusted Partner alongside clients to deliver to true business need, operate in mixed teams and leave a lasting Legacy of increased capability
  • IT Programme Assurance - assurance across complex IT programmes covering the delivery life cycle
  • Agile for the Enterprise - Software applications developed through the agile process have three times the success rate of the traditional waterfall. However, expertise is scarce. At the forefront of Agile delivery, a differentiated offering, some great agile coaches and a strong track record
  • Solution Architecture - designing and implementing effective IT organisations (cultural and behavioural elements, organisational structure, governance, and technical processes)

In uncertain times this opportunity offers real stability and longevity due to the long term relationships the business has and a huge pipeline of interesting new work...

There are multiple openings for IT professionals as the organisation continues to build a greater presence in the South West. You'll get the chance to work for prestigious Defence and Security sector clients, lead teams and collaborate with sector and service specialists from across the winder Global business.

The experience you'll gain....

  • Working with CxO level clients and making a real difference to a broad range of leading FTSE 500 companies and public sector organisations
  • Practical and hands-on work; you will deliver, assure and advise, working shoulder to shoulder with clients and their partners throughout the delivery life cycle
  • A career that develops your consulting skills through the client exposure and structured thinking that consulting brings
  • A working environment where people and ideas matter; supporting your growth through our Academy
  • A direct link to innovative technology consulting. Access to a dedicated technology centre which is at the core of innovation and research. The business operates innovation labs where solutions are created to showcase the art of the possible and address our clients' challenges

Is this you.....or could it be?

  • An ambitious consultant who has a passion for solving client problems and enjoys working in a fast paced environment
  • Someone self-motivated with an unwavering sense of pride in their work, a clear record of success and a focus on achieving results
  • Stakeholder management skills, including the ability to influence and persuade at all levels of staff seniority
