Jobs with our Digital, Technology and Innovation service

Newly formed West Northants Council’s Digital, Technology and Innovation service is revolutionising local authority IT.

"Our strategy is visionary and ground-breaking - our aim is to be the most innovative local authority in the country.

We need smart people! Armed, prepared and ready to go - game changers, visionaries and challengers, people who want to go at 1000 miles an hour - we’d rather run fast and break things, than walk slowly and never change anything.

You’ll work with likeminded, smart people; you’ll take old ways of doing things and challenge them. We’re big on removing barriers and busting constraints, so you’ll have what you need to help us transform this into a forward thinking, digital local authority that delivers public services in a progressive way.

People depend on what we deliver so what you do will make a real difference to peoples’ lives. You can be a part of this!"
Chris Wales, Chief Information Officer (CIO)

“If you were to design a council service from scratch, using today’s tools and technology, what would it look like? We’re pretty sure it wouldn’t involve paper forms and 20-year-old systems that don’t speak to each other. This is EXACTLY the sort of challenge the newly formed Service Design team like to get stuck in to! Our new kick-ass service designers will ensure that we’re designing the right things, with the people who will be using them and making their lives easier.”Adele – Service Design and UX Manager
“We are a very supportive and constantly learning team of Senior Project Managers and Business Analysts. We implement systems that underpin day-to-day operations of all council services and we do it for multiple councils at the same time - so think BIG and complex!
