Job Description

  • Drive the strategic focus on digital delivery
  • Capable team with plenty of potential
  • Strategically source, implement and embed a new ERP system
Are you passionate about driving enhancements to digital service delivery and enabling an organisation to be considered contemporary and progressive with its IT and digital capabilities? Do you have the desire to have a positive impact for the community through the work that you do? If you answered yes and yes, we have a great opportunity with a local government client for you to consider.
A role in local government will offer you the opportunity to work within one of the most diverse businesses you will ever experience. It's due to this diversity and complexity that the IT & Digital Transformation Manager will play a critical role in the short and longer term success of the organisation.
Our client, Banyule City Council, has a beautiful office based in Greensborough, Victoria that is easy to get to thanks to the close proximity of public transport (train and buses) and major roads. The organisation prides itself on a customer-focused culture of innovation, best practice and continuous improvement and is striving to continue to get better!
In this role, you will lead a capable team and ensure that operational delivery remains at a high level whilst making decisions at a more strategic level to equip and enable the organisation for now and into the future.
With an IT strategy already in place, you will bring a new perspective to the organisation and be able to refresh the strategy to ensure it is meeting the future needs.
Being a role that is a key enabler and adviser for the business, you will need to build relationships broadly across the organisation and develop a reputation for delivering on your word and achieving results.
A key strategic and long term project you will need to lead is the review of the ERP solution for the business, determining options for new solutions that are fit for purpose and then implementing and embedding the new system across the organisation.
What we are looking for

We are looking for people who have a track record of achievement in delivering digital transformation programs and IT strategies in complex operating environments. You don't need to have worked in local government to be considered for this role as the sector is changing in the IT and digital space and we are keen to bring experience from other sectors into Banyule City Council. If you do have local government experience, that's a bonus of course! 
You must have the ability to build strong relationships across an organisation, empower and inspire your team to deliver at a high level of performance and energy and enthusiasm that is contagious.
