We are looking for exceptional candidates who are enthusiastic and innovative in their use of technology. Our legislative environment is still locked in the past. However we need to harness the best of the new technologies available to us, and use innovative and creative ways of achieving our objectives through the use of new technologies, while still working within the constraints imposed on us legislation.
This includes the use of digital tools and applications, social media, smart phones, tablets, GIS systems as well as understanding and using data sets. Our team is able to access and use data from all council services, and using this effectively is critical to our success in reaching and communicating with our residents.
