The New Style of IT (Deployed) Team is responsible for the Design, development, deployment and sustainment of a modern battle-winning deployed IT system. This system will support Armed Forces deployed worldwide, on land, in the air and at sea.
The Engineering team is responsible for the development of the technical solution. The team is derived from numerous contracts and operate using elements of a Scaled Agile Framework.
Though Engineering operate using elements of SAFe, the wider programme, governing organisation (Defence Digital Service Delivery and Operations), and customers do not. There is therefore a contention between the planning cycles used within Engineering and the wider stakeholder community.

This role is for an Engineering Planner/Project Controller. This service will engage with the wider programme to input to and support a Programme wide master schedule, whilst maintaining a resourced Engineering plan. The service will need to understand information technologies, the SAFe environment and be able to transfer this into plans and schedules which can be consumed by more Waterfall based organisations. There will be a need to extract dynamic information from Kanban boards/scrum meetings in order to populate the schedules/plans.
This service must have an information technology engineering background. Large portions of schedule disruption are generated through technical ambition or blockers. The service must be able to consume this technical engineering information and be able to adjust plans without significant reference to others in order to understand the issue.
