Head of ICT
A dynamic and determined digital transformation leader is required to drive forward the programme of change that Nottinghamshire County Council ICT service is undertaking. The c150 staff are going through a restructure to be better prepared and more able to deliver the diverse and constantly changing demands placed on them. The Council must develop agile methods, move to a devops model and have multi-skilled cross cutting teams. If you are determined, know how to get to where Nottinghamshire CC ICT need to be to deliver the services we require and have the tenacity, experience and willingness to be in for the long term then this is your call to action.
You need to be pragmatic and be able to operate in a politically dynamic and complex environment. This is public sector and it takes a certain kind of person to rise to the challenge of delivering commercial level practices and quality all within a limited and defined budget. If you think this is you and you are able to make tough decisions then make a simple one today and apply. There is nothing so rewarding than delivering a service, in a way others think it is not possible, and all whilst serving the most vulnerable residents of Nottinghamshire with whom the Council interact with 24/7.
Our ICT services currently support over 60,000 users, in over 400 sites to more than 600 systems and applications. More than 11,000 corporate hardware devices are supported, often working flexibly from their home, in transit or with our residents. The demand for our ICT support is always increasing and as public services become more joined up around the needs of users.
You will be responsible for the Council's ICT function, which is all in house and covers architecture, governance, product delivery, applications, infrastructure, customer support and customer business relationships. You will report directly to the Service Director - Finance, Infrastructure and Improvement and work closely with senior leadership team to drive forward Digital transformation across the authority.
If you have experience of defining delivering and embedding ambitious technology-enabled transformation in an organisation of a similar size, scope and complexity, we would very much like to hear from you.
