Director of Digital
Location: Based in London
Salary: circa £60,000
Contract: Permanent

To help them do this they’re looking for a Director of Digital to lead them, towards a digital-first approach. Naturally such a person will have outstanding technical expertise. Your background might be in the commercial or non-profit sector, but you’ll have extensive experience of developing and delivering transformational digital strategy in a fast-moving environment. A talented digital team will be taking their lead from you, so proven skills in management, plus a strong interest in developing people, will be essential. Working in partnership with colleagues from across the organisation will come naturally to you. You’ll probably have a degree and possibly a business-related Masters.

First and foremost you must be someone who can create, and see through, a compelling vision for digital that will change the way we interact with our audiences. There is great enthusiasm for digital development across the organisation, so we are looking for someone who can leverage this enthusiasm but who also has the drive and determination to make the rapid progress they need. More than anything else they need someone who believes in the ability of digital to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged children and young people in the country who they are there to serve – and make it happen. 

Closing Date: Monday 26th November 2012.
