The Agile Coach will be supporting the regulatory affairs agile transformation programme by working with existing teams to adopt and excel in agile ways of working. They will focus on the agile coaching, process and pilot mobilisation side of change, introducing new process and evolving our mindset to embrace change.

* We can also enter teams already using these tools, but require assistance as it's not quite going to plan

Coaching and facilitation skills we have:

* Designing / applying / tailoring our tools and processes to the situation
