About the role 

You’ll join us at the very heart of our transformation.

You’ll lead your team to deliver digital and IT programmes and projects from inception to roll-out, keeping them aligned to our strategic outcomes.

You will collaborate with key stakeholders throughout the organisation, ensuring our programmes and projects are delivered in partnership, leading transformational change across the borough, promoting new ways of working and reporting progress at key governance meetings.
