The Agile Lead will be responsible for designing, documenting and integrating a Scaled Agile Delivery Methodology across Bank of Ireland. The Agile Lead will set up an Agile Delivery Competency to work in conjunction with the Project Management Competency to support projects delivering change using Agile or iterative methodologies and frameworks.
Candidates must have a very strong understanding of Project and Programme management with hands-on practitioner experience of leading Agile Transformations at large institutions. Additionally, they will have delivered projects of large scale using an Agile Framework, where their role was Agile Coach, Scrum Master or similar. They will be familiar with all aspects of Agile Delivery leveraging a number of methodologies (E.g. Scrum, SAFe, Kanban) and the organisational changes required to enable successful delivery of change using an Agile method. They will also be experienced in balancing frequent, iterative change with the need for regulatory and stability-driven controls in a large financial institution.
The Agile Lead will interface with both external vendors and internal teams to drive the cultural, organisational and methodological changes that will be required to embed Agile Delivery. They should be passionate about the benefits of Agile but also experienced and creative enough to resolve the conflicts of landing this methodology in a complex organisation.
The Agile lead will be an advocate of Agile at the Bank, coaching cross functional teams, owning the business case and benefits of Agile Delivery, and supporting the teams who will be following the approach on a daily basis.
