Many thanks for your interest in this important role.

This is an incredibly exciting time to join Manchester City Council in a critical role.  We are privileged to live in one of the best cities in the world and are committed to ensuring that our citizens enjoy an outstanding quality of life, with access to sector leading public services and education.  It’s imperative that our economy thrives and our ability to attract world class companies and academics to the city is vital. 

Over the past two years, we’ve played a leading role in CityVerve, working with a range of public and private sector partners and real-world experts to pioneer new technology to redefine ‘smart’ in the context of a living, working city.  Together we’re building a smarter, more connected Manchester, creating a city that uses technology to meet the complex needs of its people. The programme is broad in its scope, sponsoring new businesses and creating new jobs, delivering better healthcare and transport, safer streets and more engaged and empowered citizens.

As our new Head of ICT Service Operations, you will play an important part in delivering the Council’s contribution to Manchester’s Smart City journey and our own ambitions for an all-encompassing ICT and digital service, helping us to maximise our performance by becoming more agile and confident in our decision making whilst providing an exemplary user experience. 

You’ll be joining us at a key delivery stage, ensuring that we are able to support the Council through the provision of the right technology, infrastructure, platforms and services to realise our ambitious plans for the City of Manchester.

If you’re a gifted Service Operations leader with an appetite for technology and change, we’d love to hear from you.

Best wishes

Bob Brown
Chief Information Officer
