Whoever is appointed will be paid-up to 105,000, although the Home Office is happy to take the employee(s) onboard on a full time, job share or part-time - making it a pretty flexible role for the right candidate(s).

A key part of the EU Exit Technology Delivery Lead position will be to help the government move away from third-party contracts and bring many of the service and delivery aspects of the Home Office's digital strategy in-house. The ideal candidate will need to make sure this transition goes without a hitch.

"Within the Home Office, as our large multi-year contracts expire, we are leveraging these opportunities," the job posting explained. "Whilst we still use a very large cross-section of 3rd party partners for various aspects of the systems and services lifecycle, we are letting smaller contracts, and increasingly assuming direct responsibility for service delivery and integration."

They will also be expected to design and deliver the Digital, Data and Technology work to support the Brexit settlement scheme that's due to launch in the Autumn.

"The scale and complexity makes this an exciting opportunity to lead a challenging, large-scale cross-department programme of work," the job description added.
