The company which has delivered savings in excess of £320 million for the UK Government is a unique joint venture between Sopra Steria (a European leader in consulting, digital services and software development) and the UK Cabinet Office.
David moves from NHS Shared Business Services, Sopra Steria’s joint venture with the Department of Health and Social Care, where his strategic focus was on customer experience, transforming services and driving innovation for NHS employees.
Through its payroll, resourcing, procurement and finance solutions SSCL touches the lives of more than 1.8 million people - from civil servants to the Police and the Ministry of Defence.
In January, SSCL announced the successful transition of the £300m Ministry of Defence Service Delivery Contract to digitally transform pay and related services for 240,000 military personnel including reservists, and the provision of access to digital services for more than 2.5 million veterans across the UK.
David said: “I’m delighted to join SSCL at such an exciting time. As we continue to expand our range of digital services for our Government, Police and Defence clients, I look forward to accelerating this work over the next six months. Whilst COVID19 has presented many challenges, I’m impressed with the way SSCL has ensured continuity of priority services and deployed RPA solutions to underpin our critical services.”
