So let me tell you about the IS department. We believe that to make a sustained difference to the outcomes of children and young people requires an effective fusion of people, process and technology - the right people doing the right job with the right tools. We exist to enable that fusion. This means we are actively involved in working with colleagues across all areas (e.g. Children's Services, Retail, Fundraising, Campaigning) identifying needs and designing and delivering solutions. Some recent examples have include putting mobile technology into hands of practitioners, analytics into the hands of researchers, and business process advances into everyone hands. We are an agile and creative 100 strong team, passionate about the work we are doing and the difference we are making. Aligned with our basis and values we have a very flexible family friendly working environment, with great opportunities for personal and professional development.
These roles are a superb opportunity for a IT professional who wants an exciting job using their skills to make a genuine difference to the lives of the most vulnerable children and young people in the UK, whilst enjoying a great working environment, access to current\latest technologies and an opportunity to innovate.
I wish you the very best of luck in the process and look forward to meeting as many of you as possible in the not-too-distant future.
