Home Office looking for EU exit technology delivery lead
The Home Office is offering an annual salary ranging from £95,000 to £105,000 for a senior manager to ensure its IT systems are ready for Brexit, Public Technology reports.
“As the UK prepares to leave the EU, the demand is likely to leverage new capabilities already planned for delivery, but it could also require significant changes to existing plans, and the standing up of entirely new projects,” the job post noted. “The activities will reach across DDaT structural boundaries, but will be most heavily concentrated within the immigration, borders, and biometrics portfolios.”
The successful candidate will report directly to the Immigration Technology Director and will be required to provide day-to-day effective leadership and successful delivery of the program of work. Candidates must have a proven track record in delivering large, high-profile projects and programs in a fast-moving environment and managing large capital budgets. Other must-haves include the “proven experience of senior stakeholder management in a political, pressured environment”.
Desirable credentials include good knowledge of the UK’s borders, and the immigration and citizenship landscape, and being a graduate of the Infrastructure and Projects Authority’s Major Projects Leadership Academy.
Applications for the role are open until September 2nd.
