HM Land Registry is recruiting for a digital leader to oversee service transformation and a programme of upgrading systems.

The position of director of digital, data and technology will play a key role in the ongoing implementation of a five-year business strategy that reaches its conclusion in 2022. 

The chosen candidate will sit at the head of a DDaT directorate that, as part of the long-term strategy, has been tasked with “delivering a disruptive programme of transformation to improve our services… including the digitisation of the Land Register, [and] implementation of the multi-year, multi-million pound Local Land Charges programme”.

In addition to these service-transformation ambitions, the digital leader will spearhead “efforts to modernise our systems and operations”.

“The director of DDaT will create and own the directorate strategy, leading and developing a team of around 600 to deliver a resilient and innovative service,” HM Land Registry added.

The organisation is seeking applicants with a “proven track record of delivering customer-focused transformational change”. Candidates will also be expected to provide “evidence of using data to encourage innovation and customer focus, with demonstrable experience of implementing solutions that deliver clear benefits”.

“We are looking for an experienced leader of customer-focused DDaT services within complex and changing environments, capable of also playing a broader strategic leadership role as a member of the executive team,” HMLR added. “You will also be an experienced change agent, with the communication and collaboration skills to galvanise a diverse range of stakeholders around a shared and compelling vision.”

The post comes with an annual salary of £120,000 and the successful candidate will be based at one of 14 offices throughout England and Wales – spanning Durham to Plymouth. Applications are open until 11.55pm on 4 November.
