Due to the ongoing success, we’re now looking for a proactive and experienced Delivery Director to join us on a permanent basis, ideally with previous experience of working within government digital service standards, to join Difrent as part of the senior leadership team.

Your Role

Your priority will be to drive excellence in delivering our in year (£6.5m of new business) digital portfolio. Working in harmony across 3 clients (two healthcare and one central government). You will lead 4 multidisciplinary teams and set and manage goals for your 5 direct reports (a combination of delivery leads and delivery managers). As a senior leader, you will also make an impact in other areas of the company having a role in hiring and interviewing future staff.

Through rapidly forming true partnerships with our clients you’ll provide clarity of direction and scope to organise and optimise delivery as well as spotting, communicating and mitigating any risk. This will include having a solid understanding of Agile and having the ability to troubleshoot deliveries, from an outcome perspective.

You’ll bring your style of leadership and energy to influence and grow your teams (as well as other internal staff) in addition to playing a critical senior leadership role in Difrent. You’ll need to have an eye for emerging markets, be able to lead your teams to bid for work and shape how we mature and develop as a company.

Our clients are based across the UK and our teams are normally embedded at their locations. Which will make being able to travel to UK sites a crucial aspect of this role.
