Agile Coach

I’m interested


London, UK



Job description

Life moves pretty fast at William Hill – we drive constant improvement in Agile Delivery capability across the business through exceptional understanding and application of Agile and DevOps product development tools, culture & techniques.


Your role in the team


As an Agile Coach, you’ll work alongside delivery and leadership teams, supporting Delivery Leads in continuously improving team capability and Product Owners/Delivery Teams in providing competitive products.


You’ll help to enable a culture of continuous improvement with the common goal to deliver valuable technology solutions rapidly, introducing innovations and challenging the status quo. You’ll teach, coach and facilitate effective Agile techniques, ceremonies and governance, with a focus on supporting the DevOps journey, to improve performance using DORA metrics.


You’ll identify organisational impediments and contribute to coordination and resolution across businesses. You'll be a problem solver who doesn't see barriers but challenges to overcome and solve.


You’ll support and coach colleagues in pursuit of Disciplined Agile (DA) qualifications and will drive demand for Agile knowledge using our Learning Management System, ensuring communities are guided and supported.


Skills needed


  • Successful delivery experience (e.g. Scrum master, Delivery Lead, Technical Lead, Lead Architect, Test Lead, Release Train Lead or similar)
  • CSM or similar Agile qualifications
  • It would be desirable to have a coaching qualification and/or CDAC/CDAI (Certified Disciplined Agile Coach/Instructor), but this is not essential. However, we would need you to have a strong background in coaching.
  • Knowledge of the Accelerate (Learning Pool) Learning Management System would be a benefit
  • Agile/scaled frameworks experience (e.g. SAFe, LeSS, Nexus, DAD)
  • Technical skills - Jira, servant leadership, facilitation, situational awareness, continual improvement, empowerment, increasing transparency, ceremonies, Continuous Integration, Continuous Testing
  • Passion for coaching people through their journey of continuous improvement


We are passionate about people and driving continuous improvement across the business. We welcome likeminded people who have a passion for coaching and problem solving to apply to our team.


What we offer


We have welcomed our teams back to the office and have a balanced approach to office and home working.  Our employees have the opportunity to work from home up to 80% of the time with 20% of office time built in to ensure we get some face-to-face collaborative team time - and the chance for a coffee and a catch up! 


We’ll welcome you on-board with 25 days' holiday (not to mention 8 bank holidays and an extra day for your birthday), a rewarding bonus scheme, healthcare, flexible benefits and an attractive pension package. Plus, our handsomely discounted Zone 1-6 Oyster card will save you money getting to work and getting around town. And if you see the journey to work as part of your fitness regime, you’ll just love our Cycle to Work scheme.


William Hill in London 


We couldn’t be closer to the action in our London office. A 2-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road station, round the corner from Soho and Oxford Street means you’ll never be short of anywhere to go for a lunchtime stroll or a post-work drink. There’s plenty of green space too with Regent’s Park and Hyde Park not far away at all.
