Chief Digital Officer

The Role

We are looking for candidates who can apply their on the ground experience of driving the transformation of an organisation, with the networking and relational skills, strategic mind-set and vision to lead in helping local government be digital in an increasingly digital world. You will not be doing this alone – a key task will be to build a credible, experienced digital team. You will also build a wider virtual team working with regional level collaborations as well as working well with our partners - Scottish Government, Scotland Excel, SEEMiS, NHS NSS, Improvement Service and SOCITM.

Of course we expect you to understand what it means to be digital but this is more than technology; this will mean being a champion for the customer, for simplification and for outcomes over process.

Your success will ultimately be measured against enabling demonstrable savings, a shift to digital public services, and a culture shift that is driving and sustaining change across local government.
