Dear candidate

Thank you for your interest in Warwickshire County Council and this fantastic role of Chief Transformation and Digital Officer.

This is an important time for Warwickshire County Council as we are transforming the way we work and deliver our services. Like all public sector organisations, we face challenges; the impact of population growth, increased service demand, and changes to local government funding. As an ambitious council we are working proactively to respond to these challenges. 

We have developed a new operating model designed to ensure we are financially sustainable that we manage demand effectively, and deliver our economic growth priorities. Strategy and commissioning is core to our new operating model and we are introducing new structure designs to support our model. 

Underpinning this new model is a set of five values; known collectively as the Warwickshire DNA, that drive the way we do business, as well as a set of six behaviours that we expect of our colleagues. We’ve included information about both in this candidate pack and we encourage you to think about how you can demonstrate in your application not only your experience, but also leadership and management capabilities. We will be evaluating both in this recruitment process. 

We have done a huge amount in reshaping the organisation, and this has been delivered with real pace and focus. There is a lot more to do as we embed our new operating model and new ways of working into business as usual. And this is where you come in.

The role will focus on releasing savings from our digital and technology strategy, our people strategy and through better use of business intelligence and predictive analytics. You will work across the whole Council, leading on engagement with key sponsors as a coach and advisor on all transformation matters to ensure digital capabilities are fully integrated. The role offers the opportunity to do things differently and push traditional boundaries.

We are looking for someone who can blend strategy with execution. Someone who can bring new skills which complement those we already have, and can add value to the journey we have started.

If you have transformational leadership experience and the desire to make a real impact in Warwickshire, we would like to hear from you.
