La Fosse Associates are operating in the capacity of exclusive recruitment partner for Camden, Haringey and Islington councils as they embark on an exciting Shared Digital journey.


Camden, Haringey and Islington councils have created a shared digital and ICT service. Their decision to share a digital and ICT service will enhance their services to residents and save costs. More importantly, the shared service will deliver an ambitious programme of change and transformation, saving over £6 million a year across the three boroughs.

You will take responsibility for the overall management and control of formal contracts for the supply of products and services managed/delivered by the Shared Digital service.

Working closely with other members of the newly formed leadership team, you will identify and investigate opportunities for achieving the best value for money across products and services while taking responsibility for the negotiation of major contracts. Along with the Chief Digital and Information Officer, you will define, implement and communicate the digital and ICT strategy across the three boroughs and ensure the varied needs of each and their constituents are met.
