The government is recruiting for two senior IT leadership roles that are intended to improve how Whitehall buys IT.
The two jobs – IT commercial director and a chief technology officer (CTO) – are being recruited by the recently formed Crown Commercial Service (CCS).
CCS was launched in July by Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude to bring a more “business-like” approach to how government purchases goods and services, and maximise buying power through a central procurement operation. The new organisation will build on the existing Government Procurement Service run by Bill Crothers.
The advert for the IT commercial director said the role will be “responsible for all IT spend across government” worth as much as £6bn. The ad states, rather self-evidently, that candidates “will need to know a lot about IT”.
