The University of Surrey has ambitious plans for our future. We are looking for a creative, knowledgeable and highly skilled Chief Information and Digital Officer to help us deliver large scale digital transformation. Already an experienced, commercially focused, outward looking and pragmatic individual, you will be used to driving transformational change in a complex matrix environment.

This is an exciting opportunity to shape the I.T. and digital strategy for a successful and well respected UK University, renowned for delivering excellent experiences for our students and world leading research outputs across a range of disciplines. This significant leadership role will also allow you opportunities to deliver improvements to the function’s levels of service, and you will need to establish and develop strong partnerships with the University’s Academic and Professional Services communities and with other key stakeholders.
