Worcestershire County Council is recruiting for an IT and digital chief to use technology to deliver innovation – in defiance of a budget that the authority acknowledges is diminishing.

The council is advertising a vacant post as assistant director for IT and digital. The successful candidate, who will report into the director of commercial and change, will be a key member of Worcestershire’s newly created “chief officer group”, according to the job advert.

The assistant director will hold responsibility for managing an annual revenue budget of £9.16m, alongside a capital investment pot of £3m. The IT chief will also oversee a total of 83 engagements with suppliers, as well as heading up a team of about 80 full-time equivalent staff.

The council said: “The postholder will be expected to deliver sustainable and transformational improvements across the council, developing strong and effective partnerships with other public, private and third-sector organisations in support of delivery of these strategies and plans and commission effective services that see the desired outcomes being implemented.”

Applications for the position are open until 5pm on 6 January. A salary has not been specified.
