Delt exists to help our partners and clients do amazing things. Sounds simple?

Our teams, collectively, deliver significant financial benefits, greater resilience, faster innovations and nearly £16M of socio-economic gain (per annum) to the Southwest.

We are owned by the public sector but we operate like a dynamic and agile private limited company – and it works! Time and time again, we deliver on all fronts and very much in excess of our shareholders original expectations.

This is a really exciting time for us here at Delt and we would love you to join us on our journey!

Key Responsibilities:

  • Leadership and Team Management: Lead and manage the Modern Workplace Team, providing direction, coaching, and fostering a culture of continuous improvement.

  • Budget Management: Build and manage the annual zero-based budget, including capital plans and business cases for investment.
  • Stakeholder Engagement: Work with key internal and external stakeholders to manage risks and issues effectively.
  • Technical Guidance: Provide specialist technical guidance in a complex, multi-platform environment.
  • Operational Excellence: Drive continuous service improvement and operational efficiency.
  • Policy Adherence: Follow and develop corporate processes and procedures, ensuring technical documentation is accurate and current.
  • Customer Focus: Build and maintain positive relationships with stakeholders, ensuring the customer is at the heart of everything we do.
  • Performance Management: Ensure the team consistently achieves agreed SLAs and KPIs.

  • Experience in end-user computing and modern workforce environments.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an exceptional relationship builder to join a forward-thinking business at a genuinely exciting time. We are open to whether you come from the private or the public sector, but you must have an energetic, can-do attitude to leadership and team coaching.

Qualifications and Experience:

  • Demonstrable experience leading 3rd line technical teams at a strategic level.
  • Experience leading teams greater than 30 technical staff.
  • ITIL Foundation or above (or willing to undertake).
  • Previous experience in a technical role within end-user computing or Microsoft applications.
