Perfection not required
Excited about this role, but not sure if you meet 100% of the criteria? Employers would still love to hear from you.

As the fastest-growing fibre network in the UK, you could say we’re changing things up. Not only are we unlocking the digital potential of an entire nation, but we’re also constantly evolving, to give our people the most seamless employee experience possible. We’re doing this by creating a sense of purpose among our teams and offering career development opportunities the like of which has never been seen before. We’re a company that cares about people, places and new possibilities. Could this be the fresh start you’re looking for?

A rewarding career

If you’re going to be changing it up, you deserve to be looked after. That’s why we’re offering a salary of up to £55,000. On top of that, you’ll be able to enjoy plenty of benefits like 25 days’ holiday, a day off on your birthday, a day off to support a charity or organisation of your choice, a performance-related bonus scheme, and private healthcare to name just a few.

How can you change it up?

As our Senior Scrum Master, you’ll be the guardian of Agile delivery for our software development team, ensuring that agreed OKR’s and products are delivered successfully, within the Kanban framework. Working closely with the Product Owner, you’ll empower our team to provide and execute the required product solution, reducing blockages when needed. Day to day, this is what you can expect to be doing:

  • Clearly and consistently communicating progress to the business sponsor and key stakeholders
  • Leading Scrum meetings – refinements, daily stand-ups, stakeholder meetings and squad retrospectives
  • Overseeing squad progress using JIRA Kanban boards
  • Facilitating technical workshops and training sessions alongside the Product Owner

Alongside your experience either leading or supporting on Scrum project delivery and a Scrum certification, you’ll bring some of the following with you to CityFibre:

  • Ability to present ideas clearly and concisely
  • Analytical and problem-solving skills
  • User knowledge of JIRA / Scrum / Kanban
  • Great attention to detail
  • Organisation and prioritisation skills

If you’ve just found yourself nodding and thinking, ‘I can do that!’, things are about to get exciting.
