We’re more than digital. We’re improving lives.

In charge of the strategic and business relationship team, you’ll be a strategic leader, driving change and transformation, embracing innovation and exploring ideas. You’ll ensure strong connections between Digital & IT and council departments, enabling us to build a detailed understanding of each area’s digital needs. A champion of creativity, you’ll look for new opportunities for improved service provision, forging strong connections and new partnerships. With your firm grasp of solutions, you’ll have the credibility to persuade and influence.

With experience in a similar role, you’re an expert at building relationships and establishing trust. You lead your team by example, inspiring cross-team working and fantastic performance. In return for your skills, we can offer the chance to be part of an inclusive team, within an incredible borough. Hounslow has green spaces, unique history, cosmopolitan hubs and fantastic transport links – in short, it’s unlike anywhere else. At the heart of all this is our council, offering flexible working, career development and a whole range of generous benefits.

Join us at the forefront of innovation and use your skills to make a positive impact.   

Although we are currently working remotely, it is important that you will be able to travel to Hounslow when required after restrictions are lifted.
