Director Digital Enablement
£145,000 (plus performance related bonus of up to £17,500 per annum)
Location: London or Corsham, with regular travel required between the two sites
Defence has an ambition to put modern digital capability at the heart of how it operates to create a winning advantage. This is driven by an underpinning premise that emerging digital technology together with the effective capture, analysis and use of information will enable transformative military and business performance. To achieve our ambition requires a bold mindset that challenges the way we operate and recognises that success requires fundamental change.
This is truly an exciting time to be part of the Digital and IT (D&IT) Function inside MoD. Breath-taking technology capability, arriving at unprecedented pace, and Defence’s strategic intent to exploit it means that we play a critical role.
The Director Digital Enablement will be directly responsible for leading the digital transformation of UK Defence, developing the overall Departmental digital vision and strategy, as well as the information technology policy and standards to which the whole Department must conform. S/he will also ensure that the underpinning capabilities (people, processes, technology and information) are in place to deliver warfighting advantage and business efficiency.
The successful applicant will be a senior leader who is able to demonstrate strategic judgement and the ability to make decisions at the appropriate time, considering the needs of the situation, priorities, constraints, known risks, and the availability of necessary information and resources. You will be comfortable at building relationships across the most senior levels of government, along with the ability to communicate complex issues simply and resolve conflicts. You will also be able to demonstrate an understanding and interest in emerging technologies and their potential uses.
Closing date: 23:59 on Sunday 15th September 2019.
