Delivery Manager

Hyphen8 was formed in 2012. We specialise in grant-making solutions but have broad experience with all types of non-profit activity including fundraising, membership, finances and impact monitoring. We are proud to be a trusted partner for over 100+ organisations ranging from small local charities to some of the largest non-profits in the UK.

Philanthropy is at the heart of everything we do – we have an active social mission and our goal is to establish a charitable Foundation to fund causes that will make a difference.

Introducing the role

This is a really exciting period of growth for the team at Hyphen8. We are growing both as a company, and in the services we offer. We are seeing demand in requests for projects taking an agile approach, and in 2020 we launched our Service Design consultancy to complement the other services we already offer to non-profits.

We currently have an opportunity for an agile delivery manager to join our team. The role includes being a delivery manager on our larger projects, coaching the wider team in agile practices, and working with our service design team to support their work.

Main Responsibilities

  • As a Delivery Manager you will manage one or more of our agile projects, typically to deliver a Salesforce platform solution for a non-profit via a multi-disciplinary team, which includes both developers and solutions consultants. You’ll be adept at delivering complex projects, breaking down barriers for your team and both planning at a higher level and getting into the detail to make things happen when needed.
  • You will lead the collaborative, dynamic planning process – prioritising the work that needs to be done against the capacity and capability of the team.
  • You will ensure that all solutions have passed through the appropriate quality assurance processes and are at the appropriate level of quality before being deployed. You will also ensure that the client is included in the process and that user testing is carried out appropriately.
  • You will also ensure that projects are delivered to budget, and any challenges are escalated appropriately.
  • Outside of managing the agile projects, you will help to coach the wider team in agile approaches and practices.
  • You will also work with our Service Design team to provide consultancy services to our non-profit clients.

You can establish a feedback loop for teams and ensure that working practices are iterated to achieve effective delivery.

Maintaining delivery momentum: You can facilitate the delivery flow of a team, managing the pace and tempo. You can actively address internal and external risks, issues and dependencies including where ownership exists outside the team.

Making a process work. You can identify and challenge organisational processes of increasing complexity and those processes that are unnecessarily complicated. You can add value and can coach clients to inspect and adapt processes. You know how to guide teams through the implementation of a new process.
