Who we are:

At NTT DATA we are exceptional together and we believe in growing by helping others grow, whether that be our clients, partners or employees.

To achieve our goals our diverse and talented team leads by example. As a Leader you will uphold the essence of the company, be a focal point for your team, colleagues and clients and be involved in decisions to ensure the long-term sustainability of the organisation. 

We support each other to be who they want to be, work how they work best. This is how we bring innovation, and we build a better future for our people, our business and our society.

We provide a safe environment in which all of us can be ourselves and reach our full potential. Our success comes from our people, regardless of ethnicity, cultural background, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, or anything else that can be used to differentiate people because we are exceptional together.


We understand you may not tick all the boxes of the requirements lists but if you are interested in this or other opportunities within NTT DATA, do not think twice and apply!

As part of our continuous growth, we are looking for a Release Manager to join our Application & Engineering Management department, who will work in our London-based office, in partnership with our clients to deliver successful technology projects, programmes & services.  As a member of the team, you will be expected over time to gain insight into various technologies deployed to our clients including best practices like DevOps, ITIL and Agile ways of working. A hands-on approach to technology and exception engagement skills will allow for the successful candidate to achieve success within the role.

What you'll be doing:

You will own the Release Management Lifecycle which includes scheduling, coordinating and the management of releases across the enterprise for multiple applications. The releases will include application enhancements, system patches, security improvements, projects and programs.

The Release Management Lifecycle will include managing the release calendar of code deployments into Development, Test and Production Environments.  Our intention is to continue with code deployments following a release train methodology, where overall signoff for the release into production is provided by the Head of IT.

The Release Manager will assist in managing projects and interdependencies, to ensure milestone adherence and integrity of the release.  You will be working alongside a range of experienced and passionate technology and retail professionals, including Governance Team, Devops and Agile teams, and wider Business colleagues.

What you'll need:

  • Strong communication and stakeholder management skills
  • +2 Years hands on Agile Project Management experience, within a large multi-national organisation
  • You have experience in planning and leading the implementation of Technology Solutions
  • You have managed risks and resolve issues that could have affected release scope, schedule or quality
  • Co-ordinated dependant teams/colleagues, to achieve overall release success
  • Produced implementation plans and checklists
  • Communicated release details / release schedule
  • Championed release measuring, monitoring, reporting and improvements
  • Facilitated CAB meetings
  • Managed a release repository of key information
  • Facilitated post release reviews
  • Nice to have: Bachelors or Master’s degree, Retail IT Knowledge, consulting experience, fluency in second language, Excel skills, release automation experience


...and finally:

Where you’ll be:

Our employees' safety is priority, so currently you will be working from the comfort of your own home most of the time. In the future when we can spend some more time in our offices, either Oxford Circus, Bank or Epworth House, you will be able to enjoy London’s vibrant dynamics!

.... And another thing, you will be joining a close-knit team that is supportive and approachable. Which means that as a new joiner, you will always have someone available to offer help and guidance.


How to apply:

We appreciate that you may not have an up to date CV, so please just send what you have and let's organise a chat!
