The Centre of Excellence for Information Sharing is growing

stephen-curtisI’m delighted that you are interested in joining the Centre of Excellence for Information Sharing. This could be one of the most challenging, exciting and rewarding career moves you ever make.

When it comes to the ways in which information is shared, across the public sector, we are already changing the game. In breaking down barriers and breaking new ground, we have built a team that is second-to-none – could you see yourself as part of it?

We’re seeking people who can challenge, inspire and collaborate with others. People who will thrive with genuine autonomy, as part of a virtual team. And people who are keen to develop their skills in an innovative environment.

Ultimately, your knowledge, experience, passion and drive to succeed as part of a supportive team is what counts. In return, you will be supported to achieve within your role and given the flexibility to do so. I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Stephen Curtis
Director, Centre of Excellence for Information Sharing

The opportunities:
These are unique roles. So we’re seeking unique people, who can hit the ground running and seize every opportunity to change information sharing in the public sector. You’ll help transform public services – and shape the way we work, too.

We are looking for talented people who can deliver results autonomously as champions of best practice. As a member of a virtual team that’s dedicated to breaking down boundaries, you will work remotely and flexibly, often splitting your time between a range of locations – travelling far and wide to capture local stories and sharing them through our networks.

You’ll work closely with a wide range of people from diverse organisations, at both the local and national level. So it’s essential that you can build relationships. We expect you to be able to challenge the norm, ask searching questions, and support innovative solutions.

We’ll need you to be flexible – but we promise a lot of flexibility in return. Wherever you’re coming from, and wherever you plan to go in the future, you can rest assured that the advantages you’ll gain in terms of professional development will be great.
