The deputy director will then manage development teams to design, build, and implement new systems, and work with police officers and civil servants to ensure their successful rollout. 
 
“You will work on technology strategy, implementation and transformation on a scale only governments can undertake,” the Home Office said. “You will come from a technical background, probably testing, software engineering or development and have worked your way through the programme route, currently working on large-scale technology change, strategy and implementation projects in the private or public sectors.”
 
The department added: “You will work with partner central government departments as well as blue-light services UK wide in moulding and implementing complimentary systems and services, maximising the data available to them and helping to streamline critical information flow from organisation to organisation.”
 
Applications are open until 21 June.
