Capgemini recruiting its way into the public sector

Hot on the heals of its appointment of former NHS shared business service head, Ruth Ormsby, Capgemini has appointed a policeman of 30 years to head its division focussed on serving police authorities.

Roy Toner has been appointed to the newly created position of chief information officer of the Criminal Justice Sector at Capgemini UK Outsourcing Services.

The importance of understanding the businesses of public sector organisations is essential if IT suppliers are to help them meet their tough cost cutting targets without reducing service levels too steeply.

With hundreds of thousands of public sector workers set for redundancy, now could be the time for the private sector to pick up a top human resource. Not only do some of these individual have good understanding of business requirements in public sector organisations, but they must have good contacts as well.

On the subject of public sector employees moving to the private sector, I wonder where John Suffolk will end up. Apparently he has a farm, so he will have to get tired of that first. You never know the cold spell might get him back in an IT driving seat sooner than expected. Herding sheep in this weather doesn’t sound fun.
