This is a huge, new and innovative direction for us. That, along with delivering significant cost savings for the authority, means you’ll rarely face a dull moment.

Being a skilled people person, you might be working (or have worked) as a Technical Development Manager or similar, either within or outside of public sector. You will be looking for a role where you work autonomously, flexibly and have an innovative and varied workload within the development, support and strategy space. You’ll be interested in being part of a culture that celebrates and encourages flexible working and champion’s individual impact.
