Digital consultant

Permanent — full time

About the role

As digital consultant, you’ll be part of the growing consultancy team at our modern offices in historic Leith. The role will involve time out of the office, consulting with users and clients in locations across Scotland and the rest of the UK. You’ll work closely alongside colleagues from UX, technical and project management to help develop and realise projects and programmes for organisations in the public and private sectors.

About you

You might currently be a business analyst, product owner/manager or consultant. Whatever your current job title, you will be a people-centred problem solver who is focused on supporting clients to tackle their biggest challenges by thinking and acting digitally. You'll be:

  • able to apply critical thinking to business situations in order to establish genuine understanding and produce practical, solution-focused outcomes.
  • able to communicate effectively – in person and in writing – with clients and colleagues, bringing people together on projects while tackling conflicting requirements.
  • a resourceful pragmatist who excels at devising solutions to business and project challenges. You will be open to learning from others, and offering your support when needed.
  • highly organised, planning and managing complex projects autonomously. Your workshops will enthuse people and your outputs will be thoughtful and authoritative.
  • customer focused and able to build strong, empathetic relationships with clients of all skill and knowledge levels. You will be comfortable acting as a trusted adviser.

You'll have practical experience of designing, shaping and delivering digital projects in the context of business change, digital transformation and technology rationalisation.

You’ll have a strong grounding in user-centred design and experience with agile project management methodology. You'll have a deep understanding of digital technology and be familiar with technology trends.

What you'll do

You'll have a wide range of responsibilities. Here are some examples to give you a flavour of what you'll do:

  • analysing and interpreting business, user, and technical needs
  • researching and writing software specifications and product backlogs
  • translating requirements into practical digital projects and programmes
  • planning digital discovery, service design and delivery projects
  • preparing and leading workshops, interviews and meetings
  • identifying and capturing client requirements
  • introducing new processes (such as service design) and technologies (like machine learning) to clients
  • acting in a product ownership and product management capacity as necessary
  • writing proposals, options papers, reports and roadmaps
  • advising clients around digital strategy and delivery
  • collaborating in multi-disciplinary teams
