Across the Commercial and Government sectors, CGI is supporting and leading this transformation. As part of our Agile Digital Services team, you will help empower clients to increase business agility and deliver greater value, early and incrementally.

CGI was voted ‘Best Workplace’ by Great Place To Work in 2021, and offers a competitive salary, excellent pension, private healthcare, plus a share scheme (3% + 3% matching) which makes you a member not just an employee.

You’ll coach team members, stakeholders and leadership on Agile, Lean and DevOps principles, tools and techniques. You’ll review metrics to drive improvement, and you’ll improve delivery by removing the roadblocks that prevent progress.

A CGI career within our Agile Tribe will let you stand out, influence and shape a UK team, backed by one of the largest independent technology and business services companies in the world.

You’ll also discover:

● A unique level of variety across different clients and industry sectors
● High-profile, interesting and challenging projects to stretch your skills
● Training and support
● Impactful work that makes a real difference in our communities

● An Agile champion with experience guiding and supporting the adoption of Agile practices and values
● An excellent understanding of how to effectively apply Scrum in complex, real-world situations
● Experience coaching teams in how to become agile through recognised practices and frameworks in Agile, DevOps and Lean
● Knowledge of JIRA (or similar tools) and how metrics can be developed and used to improve processes and efficiencies of the team
● In-depth knowledge Agile methods such as XP, TDD, BDD, continuous integration and continuous delivery
● An industry-approved certification such as A-CSM, PSM II or higher

Our working approach is built around our clients’ needs. That’s not to say yours aren’t important too and in a post-pandemic world, we want to extend the offer of an open discussion to you as to whether a role can be office or home-based, flexible or hybrid.

We celebrate and reward our colleagues through a variety of methods, and we promote the health and well-being of our members through a range of programmes and activities. We are also committed to ensuring a safe work environment through the prevention of harmful workplace incidents including physical harm, harassment and violence.

Unconditionally inclusive – we know diversity brings a greater variety of ideas, perspectives and experiences to the workplace. We actively encourage diversity at CGI and inclusivity is one of our top priorities, with support networks for Parents, Women, LGBT+, BAME, Neurodiversity and Disability.
