Here’s a job for those that enjoy a challenge: the Government Digital Service (GDS) is looking for someone to deal with all things digital in the wake of the UK’s exit from the European Union.
I think the GDS is aware this is a big ask, hence up to £117,800 a year’s on the table for whomever wishes to become Deputy Director, EU Exit.
But what will you be doing? Well, you’ll be expected to develop ‘an expert understanding of departmental EU exit and transformation-related activities and champion these in the delivery of the EU Exit transformation activity’. Clear as daylight. Good. Luck. With. That.
Furthermore, you’ll ‘proactively engage with senior stakeholders across government, balancing the need for short-term solutions for day 1 exit with longer-term strategic considerations,’ which will include ‘identifying and bringing together the resources needed to promote the right culture and processes for supporting successful EU Exit related transformation, including influencing Permanent Secretaries and heads of the wider professions across government’.
With people like David Davis running the Brexit operation, this should all be a piece of cake.
Anyway, if you’re interested, or would just like to read some dense verbiage, here’s the job.
