If you need this job description in another format, or other support in applying, please email talent@madetech.com.

Our mission is simple! We believe we can use tech to make public services better. We also believe this can happen best when our own team represents the society that actually uses the services we work on. We’re collectively continuing to grow a culture that is happy, healthy, safe and inspiring for people of all backgrounds and experiences, so we encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply for roles with us.

When you apply, we’ll put you in touch with a Talent Partner who can help with any needs or adjustments we may need to make to help with your application. This includes alternative formats for documents, the time allotted for interviews and any other needs. We also welcome any feedback on how we can improve the experience for future candidates.


Made Tech are experiencing a period of rapid growth and are scaling quickly to keep pace with demand. We are working with larger-scale projects and an increasing number of stakeholders, resulting in the expansion of the current delivery function. We have identified that a new, senior layer within the function is needed to ensure consistent direction, free up the delivery teams and provide a clear line of contact for client relationships.


Your role will entail:

  • Leading and owning delivery of large-scale digital programmes across the project life-cycle and multiple work-streams
  • Managing and fostering exceptional client and internal relationships
  • Creating a healthy delivery roadmap that is prioritised by business value and risk
  • Designing appropriate reporting metrics and health checks to accurately monitor project progress including budget maintenance
  • Identifying training needs and provide coaching to customers and team members
  • Engaging client and team in structured processes such as workshops, sprint planning, daily scrums, show and tells, retros etc.
  • Facilitating appropriate communication channels such as daily stand-ups, Trello /Asana boards
