The Government Digital Service is offering a salary of more than £70,000 for a head of EU exit digital delivery and strategy.

The central digital agency established a dedicated Brexit team early last year, staffing the unit with a mixture of existing workers and new recruits. The importance of its Brexit work was signalled by the decision to move incumbent GDS chief operating officer Alison Pritchard – who had only joined the organisation a few months previously – to a role heading up the new EU exit function.

“You will review and advise on the overall delivery readiness across all government departments and support departments in achieving their strategic ambitions for EU exit digital delivery and strategy in the short, medium and long term,” GDS added.

Applications for the post, which will be based at GDS headquarters in east London, are open until 21 April. The position will come with an initial fixed-term contract of two years, and an annual pay packet of up to £70,877.
