Contract Type: Permanent
Hours: full-time (37 hours per week)
Salary: £61,024 to £65,891 inclusive annual salary + up to 19.7% employer pension contribution

St Albans is a unique English Cathedral City with a colourful history which can be seen in the Roman remains and variety of beautiful architecture, heritage sites and conservation areas. Set within green belt, off the M25, A1M and M1, the District includes a cathedral, vibrant city centre and thriving villages.

Our centrally located offices in the city are near to the station (London St Pancras 20 minutes), shops and restaurants. In short, it is a great place to live and work.
We have put the foundations in place over the last two years to change the way we do business.

Our Strategic Directors are driving our ambitious change plans. We have created a new single delivery team to manage our customer engagement, underpinned by new technology. Now we are recruiting to this key leadership post that will help us to capitalise on these changes.

About the role

This critical leadership role will focus on successfully delivering our ambitious transformation programme. You will lead the development and implementation of new technology solutions to support these changes and ensure we meet the highest digital standards. You will write and implement a new digital strategy for the council which sets out how we will design future digital services and inspire people both within the council and our local communities to become more digitally literate.

About you

You will have significant experience of providing effective leadership, advice and solutions to internal and external customers about digital and transformational change. You will be a confident communicator who can work effectively with a wide range of professionals on diverse projects within the programme including project support staff, business analysts, project managers, finance staff, suppliers, and subject matter experts.

With extensive experience of project and programme delivery in large and complex organisations, your ability to identify and develop innovative solutions, and make powerful arguments for change will be essential for success in this role.

You will work closely with the Transformation Programme Manager to schedule transformation work and with the Customer Delivery Manager to effectively transition to a single customer delivery team supported by effective technology.

While we want to deliver at pace, we also value and respect work life balance. We offer hybrid and other flexible working options and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds. Whilst experience of working in local government would be beneficial, applications from candidates who have worked elsewhere in Government or in the private sector are also welcome.

In addition to working within a great team and a comprehensive salary you will have access to:

  • 30.5 days annual leave + bank holidays
  • Local Government Pension Scheme with current employer contribution up to 19.7% employer contributions
  • Flexible working options including hybrid
