The National Crime Agency is seeking a director of digital, data and technology to oversee the organisation’s drive to replace legacy technology with digital platforms and agile ways of working.

The role, which will be based at NCA headquarters in London’s Vauxhall district, offers an annual salary of £130,000 and comes with responsibility for leading an organisation of 200 DDaT professionals. The successful applicant will form part of the NCA’s senior leadership team, and will report into director general of capabilities Nina Cope.

“You will be responsible for shaping and delivering our digital, data and technology strategy, leading our transition away from legacy technology stacks and ways of working to deliver agile, digital, data and technology platforms, products and services that truly enable our organisation,” the NCA said.
