When the Academy moved to Government Digital Service (GDS), it put us in an ideal position to collaborate with digital, data and technology communities from across government to understand their learning and development needs.
Before we publish the GDS digital and technology skills matrix on GOV.UK, it’s really important to make sure our users can access all the information they need.
I posted recently about the basics of the recruitment process, I wanted to follow that up with a brief look at how you build a recruitment strategy.
David Richardson joined the Civil Service in 2013 as a Digital and Technology (DaT) Fast Streamer (previously the Technology in Business Fast Stream).
Disruptive technologies, like cloud computing, big data and open source software, demand new technology skill sets.
If you want to increase the chances of your service passing a Digital by Default Service Standard assessment, then make sure you have a service manager who has been on the Induction Programme at GDS.
As the digital transformation of public services gathers pace across government, the need to develop our digital and technology leaders of the future becomes increasingly important.
Effective recruitment, selection, and induction are crucial to running a successful organisation.
