SMRB - £61,370 - £75,635
The London Borough of Newham is a young, culturally diverse, vibrant and ambitious borough with a huge amount to offer. Located within the historic East End of London, we have excellent transport links to the rest of London and South-East England, including Kent, Essex, Surrey and Middlesex. Our Mayor is driving an ambitious and delivery-focussed agenda for the coming term in our Building a Fairer Newham Manifesto, with a relentless focus on ensuring that we continue to be, first and foremost, an exemplary champion for all of our residents, communities and businesses in everything that we do.
About the Service:
Our overarching aim is to ensure that our Business Systems and the people who run them are at the centre of the Council’s transformation to digital and future aspirations to become a leading organisation in the future use of data for the public good. To advance this agenda, we have recently completed a strategic review of our commissioning, management and improvement of business systems, together with our approach to business intelligence across the Council, with the intention of creating the right foundations to improve our systems, data capability and insight for the future. To help us on this journey, we have created a central hub within our Transformation Directorate that will play a key role in developing standards, building organisation wide capability and a road map for integration and significant systems development, with delivery through ‘spokes’ teams within service areas.
We now need to recruit a Directorate Management Team to shape this new and exciting service where the hub and spokes work together to deliver enhanced capability across the Council.
About the Roles:
Reporting to the Assistant Director Business Systems and Management Information Unit, these roles will spearhead the implementation of our new directorate teams into a professional, people centred services that makes the most of the Council’s technology, using the intelligence it produces to support services to take better decision, delivering value for money.
We are looking for talented individuals with the energy and enthusiasm to join a new leadership team that together will deliver either a directorate or hub based service that works to corporate frameworks but delivers to local priorities. You will approach problems differently and aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo. Also, your technical skills and know-how are critical, but equally important is the ability to apply that technical discipline to the service you lead, listening to stakeholders and working collaboratively to support and improve performance. That spirit informs every element of these roles.
There are two roles across our People spoke for Health, Social Care and Education (Data and Insight and Product and Systems). You will need to demonstrate your experience and knowledge of the applications for the service areas you are interested in and express a preference for the specific role you are applying for.
