Role carrying potential £100,000+ salary will oversee £26m transformation programme as well as several major system replacement projects


Norfolk County Council is looking for a new head of ICT and information management .

The county council, which is two years into a partnership with HP Enterprise to deliver a £26m transformation programme, Digital Norfolk Ambition (DNA), wants the new ICT head to lead a 'large and varied' agenda with the post offering a potential salary of up to £115,000 a year.

The DNA programme is designed to deliver a refresh of the Norfolk corporate desktop, provide a modern data centre hosting environment as well as collaboration tools for the organisation. The council says the desktop migration is 90% complete and work is progressing on the design of the data centre to ensure that the disruption to the business is minimal during migration.

The council is also putting in place a replacement voice and data network contract and the 12-month transition needs to be delivered to provide both business transformation and cost savings without any disruption to Norfolk's customers.

The county council will replace its Highways Management system in April this year and the project is integrated into a new CRM and Web content management system, which Norfolk describes as "a critical project delivering channel shift and introducing mobile ways of working."

A social care system replacement project has also just commenced while a payroll system is due to come to the end of its life in 2018 with the Finance/HR system following two years later.

The closing date for applications for the post is this coming Friday, March 4, with a long-list due to be announced on March 9. Shortlisted candidates will be informed on March 16 with panel interviews set to take place on March 21 and 22.
