This is a fantastic time to join Dacorum Borough Council. We’ve assembled a new leadership team, so you’ll join us at a key time where you can really make a difference.

Our plans for Dacorum can be summed up in one word – Ambition. We have huge ambitions for our towns and villages and the services we deliver for our residents and businesses.  We know that to deliver this we, as a Council, need to be on the top our game.  That’s why we’re driving through a major transformation programme looking at all aspects of our operation and ensuring that exceptional customer service is at its heart.  We know that this will take a cross-organisational effort and we’re committed to working in a highly collaborative and evidenced way to make it happen.

Reporting to the Strategic Director – People and Transformation, you will play a key role in delivering this ambition in leading our exciting digital agenda.  This is a key foundation of our transformation ambition and is integral to improving our efficiency and effectiveness whilst providing that exceptional service to our residents and business that we are striving for.  In particular you’ll be leading on:
