Digital Transformation Consultant

Digital Transformation Consultant

Edinburgh | £60,000 - £75,000 | Permanent

Published: 16.05.24 Ref: BBBH47036_1715877191

I am working with a well-known software consultancy in Edinburgh who are looking to recruit a Digital Transformation Consultant for their Edinburgh or Bristol office.

The company:

They are a thriving software company, focused on Digital Transformation and cloud consultancy. Their head office is in Edinburgh, and they have a wide-ranging list of clients from private, to government to public sector. They focus on designing and building software cloud solutions and digital transformation across some huge organisations and this is a pivotal role for them. They are hiring due to an internal restructure and this role will be reporting directly into the company's Managing Director.

In relation to where you will work, this will be a combination of home based (majority) and some office working. Ideally, you could get into the Edinburgh office at the Gyle roughly twice a week, as you will be a senior figure and your presence will be of great benefit to the team. However, this role is working with a client down in Bristol, so you will likely visit them once a month. The role could also be based near Bristol, working remotely and close to the client.

The role:

In this role, you will lead the delivery of complex clients and programmes and will be a key member of the business. You will lead large-scale delivery with a focus on achieving client outcomes, developing senior client relationships (at the C-suite level) and doing this through effective delivery leadership. Your key responsibilities will include but are not limited to:

** Leading a multi-disciplined team to drive highest levels of customer satisfaction

** Leading on the implementation of the company strategy across one main client

** Representing the business across the organisation, in front of clients and prospective clients

** Maximising the return on sales and identifying opportunities

** Lead on the development of the capability across Project Management, Architecture, Cloud and Software Development

This is a client-facing role which combines strong leadership attributes working across all dimensions of the consultancy lifecycle, including pre-sales, commercial, relationships, technology, delivery and people.

Your background:

** Previous experience working in a software/technology consultancy or large end-user

** Background in a Senior Software Delivery role, working with large-scale clients and organisations

** Strong appreciation of modern software engineering and associated development technologies and the full software development lifecycle

** Background in leading the delivery of large-scale, complex technology projects for clients, or lead a portfolio of client engagements

** Ability to develop and maintain senior client/partner relationships

** Contribute to the development of innovative propositions, ways of working and other thought leadership collateral

This is an opportunity to work with a thriving and employee-first organisation. You will get to work with some huge organisations whilst leading and working alongside some very bright minds.

Our clients


It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow
