Are you a passionate Scrum Master and an Agile aficionado? Does the prospect of working with a talented development team to help them perform at an even higher level excite you?  Are you a people-centric person, a servant leader who is prepared to go the extra mile if it enables the team to deliver?  If yes, please read on…

In return, the practice will support you in your career development, whether this is becoming an Agile Coach, Product Owner or any another aspirational role within the business.
