We think big at Blackburn with Darwen Council. We’ve done this for 20 years across all our services. Our ambitious digital journey has begun and we are looking for a passionate and compelling advocate of change to join the senior leadership team. We are determined to embrace the full potential of
technology, firmly focused on significantly enhancing the experience of our residents.

This new role creates the capacity and input we need to drive fundamental change across the Council. Your task will be to deliver a joined up, digitally enabled Council, with services fully accessible to our residents through a channel of their choosing. A number of key services come under the remit including business support and the successful candidate will play a key role in commercialisation as well as being tasked with ensuring that new ways of working are enabled and embedded across all directorates.
You will need a keen eye and appreciation of the ‘art of the possible’ within a complex public-sector organisation where delivering tangible value for money for our residents is key.
With exemplary stakeholder engagement and management skills, you will be able to clearly articulate and translate sometimes complex technology solutions into simple, clear, meaningful business outcomes for both a technical and non-technical audience alike.
Experience of working within or alongside the public sector in a strategic digital or technology capacity will be advantageous. More important is a can-do mentality for change and a restless appetite for continuous improvement, guided by a combination of sharp commercial intellect and
intuition drawn from a deep understanding of user needs, behaviours and experience.
