Here at Southwark Council, we are very proud of what we have already achieved in meeting our strategic objective to make Southwark a fairer place for all, whilst acknowledging there is still more for us to do to make Southwark an even greater place to live, work, learn and visit. As part of this we are in the process of modernising the way in which we deliver our services to our residents, communities, partners, staff, volunteers, business and visitors in order to continue to improve how we do things.
In leading the ‘Modernise’ programme for the Council, I both recognise, and am passionate about, the role which great technology and digital innovation can play in supporting and driving delivery of our vision and wider corporate strategy.
Our new Head of IT and Digital will be a key member of my Senior Leadership Team, working creatively and collegiately to bring together the best we have to offer in technology and digital, whilst working in partnership with our shared ICT service with Brent and Lewisham. In return for hard work and dedication to our values and mission to better serve our communities, we can offer you a truly great and exciting role in a warm and welcoming Council with ambitious plans for the future and a real desire to make things better for all.
Thanks for your interest in this position and in Southwark Council. I hope you will find our Head of IT and Digital role to be exciting and attractive and I look forward to receiving your application.
