Development Delivery Manager
At Pearson, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.
UK Qualifications Development is divided into a number of discrete development areas. Traditionally this has been organised around platforms, each platform broadly handling one kind of qualification. We are transforming towards a less siloed, more holistic view of quals capabilities and the Development Managers are required to help drive towards the future state, while also delivering projects that bring business value.
Additionally Pearson has a plan to restructure our IT systems to be simpler, to be cloud based, to be more reactive to change, to be cheaper to maintain, and to deliver more scope for global reuse.
