Job description:

I have been retained by one of Europe's leading digital transformation technology & services companies, looking to hire an exceptional CTO to join their senior leadership team.

Reporting to MD Government Sector, the CTO role is a key leadership role and will be expected to deliver a strategic approach to technology delivery and transformation, supported by 2 x Deputy CTOs, aligned to Central and Local/ Devolved Government.

My client is looking for someone with a passion for improving citizen services and the ability to 'excite' Government about digital transformation and change. You must be highly credible, with a strong presence and able to influence both internally and externally. You do not need to be a deep technologist but instead, someone who can sit in front of any deputy within Government and be confident delivering a strategic approach to technology delivery and transformational activity, ensuring it is followed through.

The CTO will also sit at the top table and be a senior leader within the company as a whole, playing an active role in the corporate agenda. You will also need to be motivational and inspirational to tech people in the company - building a bright future and bringing everything to life.

This is a very good time to join the business. The Government sector has recently realigned its delivery capabilities to support a significant change in strategy and approach. Within many client accounts, new technology makes next generation citizen centric services viable and offers the possibility of real transformational change.

Please forward your CV for immediate consideration.
