Director of the Parliamentary Digital Service
In helping us put digital delivery at the forefront of our work, you will help us to deliver a modern Parliament.
Our Digital Service serves a broad and varied audience, from Members of both Houses and their staff, including constituency offices across the country, parliamentary staff, the media, lobby groups and academia, and the general public. To do so, it has around 500 staff and a total budget (including digital investment) close to £50 million.
You will lead the department, supporting both business as usual and change projects and as a member of the House of Lords Management Board and House of Commons Executive Board, you will support the strategic management of both organisations, including preparations for moving from the Palace of Westminster during Restoration and Renewal.
You can expect to deal frequently with politicians in both Houses and will do so in a way that builds and sustains the credibility of the Digital Service. You will be publicly accountable for delivering measurably rising levels of satisfaction with Parliament’s digital services from Members, staff and stakeholders and will have a keen focus on maintaining and improving the delivery of services, projects and programmes.
You will have the energy, enthusiasm and resilience necessary to support and foster change in a complex organisation where ambiguity is a fact of life and differing strategic priorities may be difficult to reconcile.
The skills and experience we are seeking and more information on the role can be found in the job description.
We look forward to receiving a CV and supporting statement demonstrating the required skills and experience, applications must be submitted by 25 June 2018.
