MI5 is looking for a head of transformation and office of CIO to assist in its "ambitious plan" to overhaul IT at the security agency.
MI5 is responsible for protecting the UK from "threats to national security" and it said it was "increasingly dependent on its CIO organisation and a portfolio of mission-critical IT services" to achieve this.
The agency said it has an ambitious plan to deliver new capability within constrained budgets.
The job carries a six-figure salary and will involve shaping transformation of the organisation. Whoever fills the new position will be required to "capture the hearts and minds of the wider group of MI5 stakeholders" as well as support the CIO in the overall management of the organisation.
The application process will take up to six months and the deadline for applying is 15 June. The successful applicant would need to be experienced in IT leadership and "personal, influential and compelling" in their approach, MI5 said.
