Strategic Head of Digital and Data

Job Title: Strategic Head of Digital and Data
Salary range: ca £85,000 per annum
Hours: 36.5 hours per week
Contract: Permanent


Are you an innovator in the digital field? Can you drive Digital, Data and Technology transformation and solutions across a large organisation? Are you looking to take your career to the next level? If the answer is yes, then this may be the role for you.


We are looking for a dynamic individual to head up our ICT/Digital team, with a focus on designing and delivering our future technological infrastructure.

Leading a technology-related portfolio of work, you'll be responsible for developing strategies and driving organisation-wide change in relation to the Digital agenda.

This is a senior leadership role where you will be responsible for owning and leading a key function within the organisation.


We have grown considerably over the past few years and it's an exciting time to join and help create the platforms for excellence in our ICT and Digital service that support delivery of a number of portfolios.

The West Midlands is at the forefront of innovation including transformation of our transport system through programmes such as the regional transport coordination centre, future mobility and connected and autonomous vehicles as well digital services within our environment, housing, skills and customer services and, of course, WM5G.


Who we are
The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) is a strategic authority working with partners to deliver a stronger West Midlands, with a focus on skills, innovation, transport, economic development and regeneration.

Individual Councils and Local Enterprise Partnerships will still deliver services and retain their identity but on the big decisions we will have the resources to work together.


This is an exciting time for the West Midlands - the Commonwealth Games will be here in 2022, the arrival of HS2 will help make us a world class business location and a new £350m housing deal aims to deliver 215,000 new homes by 2031.


Against a backdrop of a uniquely challenging and evolving environment, we are looking for the right people to ensure we can meet the demands of delivering an ambitious agenda that aims to build a healthier, happier, better connected and more prosperous West Midlands.


In return for your hard work and commitment, we will reward you with a range of competitive and attractive benefits.
