A job delivering our digital strategy

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Jobs


We've just advertised a new role in the DH digital team to help deliver the commitments we made in our digital strategy.

The role is Digital strategy manager. It's a civil service grade 7 role with a salary of £48,799 - £51,517. It's offered as a fixed-term appointment for one year. It's advertised openly (so you don't need to be a civil servant to apply). The closing date for applications is 21 May.

The full details and application form are on the Civil Service website:

Here's an extract from the job spec:

You will work in the Department of Health Digital and channel strategy branch, as part of a small team delivering the commitments set out in the December 2012 Digital Strategy.

The digital strategy responds to the Government Digital Strategy and focuses on 5 broad areas of digital transformation:

1. Improving the development and impact of our open policymaking
2. Increasing the effectiveness of our communications to and engagement with audiences and stakeholders
3. Developing the digital skills we need across the organisation
4. Improving our day-to-day organisational efficiency
5. Leading the health and care system towards a health information revolution

You will help lead transformative culture change across the department, championing the digital agenda. You will deliver a programme of work to ensure that the department can become a digital first department of state, equipped to lead a digital first health and care system. You will work with a dedicated project manager, reporting to the head of digital.

You will have the credibility to build excellent relationships with senior staff across the department as well as across government and the health and care system. You will have the practical knowledge and experience to deliver sustained change in the organisation.

You will be familiar with the drive towards “digital by default” across government, and you will have experience working on programmes and projects that have delivered real change.
