Hull is a City that is changing and has a rejuvenated sense of optimism since it became City of Culture; and it is now a great place to live and work.
Hull is Britain’s most connected digital city. By March 2019 ultrafast fibre connectivity will be accessible to every business and household. Citizens also have access to extensive fixed wireless and mobile connectivity. These factors have helped a thriving digital community to develop for which the focal point is the Centre for Digital Innovation (http://www.c4di.co.uk).
Within the public sector the City benefits from a NHS Clinical Commissioning Group with co-terminous boundaries with the council which is enabling integrated working toward a single digital vision.
Building on these strengths the Council has a substantial corporate initiative to modernise the Local Authority’s services and promote Digital First as the primary means of engagement for its citizens.
This approach aims to improve access to services, release efficiencies and facilitate continuous improvement to integrated service delivery.
The Council is now looking to recruit a leader with highly developed knowledge and skill in technology to take forward the City to achieve its digital potential.
