The hybrid cloud head “will play a critical role in design, build and operation of the department’s strategic hosting environments in hyperscale public cloud providers as well as its on-premises hosting infrastructure”. The successful applicant will work with other senior managers in DWP’s digital and tech team, as well as representatives of other departments.
