Supporting the business through technology and innovation. That’s when it hits home

Are you a Technical Delivery Manager keen to join a company that really cares? Home Group’s Technical Delivery team is looking for new manager to lead our team of 3rd line engineers. Your team are responsible for delivering change and supporting the business.

The team look after all Cloud Technologies and Office 365 on behalf of the business and are a true 3rd line within Home Group’s wider IS department.

Together you’ll implement transformational change with our cloud-based technologies. You’ll manage initiatives during the whole life cycle from tender through to implementation and support, also ensuring accurate resource planning and development of the team’s technical skills.

As our Technical Delivery Team Manager, you’ll also manage, develop and upskill team members using your technical and coaching skills.

A bit about you

You’re an established manager, who has people and technology at the heart of everything you do. You’re experienced managing projects and teams working collaboratively with third line technical resources.

As our Technical Delivery Manager, you’ll have a broad technical knowledge and ideally an understanding of development best practices, cloud technologies and all things Office 365.

You’re a confident communicator and able to influence across all levels of an organisation. You combine this with your great stakeholder management skills which are key to your success. You’re a true motivator and use your skills to drive results, using a hugely important customer-focused approach.

About our team

Your team are super passionate about all technical facets of our applications. To us we’re not just a team we’re a ‘work family’. We’re a small but perfectly formed team and there will be nine of us. We don’t just love to support the business, we’re there for each other too!

You’ll also join the wider IS leadership team and will work for Si our Head of Service Management & Cyber Security. Si is passionate about pace of delivery and continual learning which he needs to be in the everchanging threat landscape. Outside of work he loves to play golf, cricket and guitars all to a poor standard, which he tries to compensate for with a lot of enthusiasm!

When and where you’ll do your job

We’ve invested heavily in our IT infrastructure, and this allows us to work in an agile way. Our Head Office is in Newcastle upon Tyne, and soon we will be moving into our new state of the art offices close to St. James Park!

It’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!
