3C ICT is our shared IT service between Cambridge City Council, Huntingdonshire District Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council. The shared service was established to provide a more efficient way of delivering ICT services across the three partner councils and has now matured into a reliable and efficient operation.
Our team of 70+ staff provide a range of services from digital development and integration, to server management and maintenance as well as standard desktop and business application support. On a day-to-day basis, we manage and deliver all the IT systems and services needed by our partners and customers. We are a modern IT Operation utilising Office 365, Microsoft Azure, DevOps and other up to date applications.
We are looking for experienced leaders to join a new/developing team within the 3C ICT Shared Service.

This is an exciting, varied and challenging role supporting 3C’s Shared Services vision and delivering critical, customer-facing services.
You will work collaboratively with colleagues to track associated change and delivery activities against the broad scope of projects we are responsible for.
You will shape, deliver, and optimise these services and enhance functionality, driving value for money and ensuring suppliers are managed effectively.
You will also manage resources to ensure adequate skills and expertise are shared to provide cover across the full set of services and support functions.
The ideal candidate will understand service needs and business impact, proactively managing services, leading issue resolution, and responding at pace to demands in the live environment. You will be pragmatic and persuasive with strong negotiation skills to influence and challenge
Knowledge of public sector services and professional experience or relevant qualifications (either academically or by professional body) are preferred but ultimately we are seeking someone who is able to manage multiple projects and a self-motivated team player with good written and interpersonal skills, excellent attention to detail with the ability to problem-solve.
