MoD offers £145k apiece for digital director duo
Department seeks leaders in the areas of digital enablement and cyber risk
The Ministry of Defence is seeking two senior digital leaders.
The department is advertising two vacant directorial roles: one in the area of cyber and risk; and the other focused on digital enablement.
The successful applicant for the former position will be “responsible for leading defensive cyber activities, including traditional IT, operational technology, weapons platforms and electromagnetic spectrum security”. The chosen candidate will be tasked with “ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information, systems and services” across the MoD.

The digital enablement post, meanwhile, comes with a remit of “leading the digital transformation of UK defence”. This will entail “developing the overall departmental digital vision and strategy, as well as the information technology policy and standards to which the whole department must conform”, the MoD said.
Each role comes with an annual pay packet of £145,000 and will be based in either London or Corsham in Wiltshire.
Applications for both are open until 15 September, after which the field of candidates will be narrowed over the course of a number of stages, culminating in final interviews during the two-week period beginning on 25 November.
