Reporting to the Deputy CEO, the CIO will drive contemporary practice across the organisation, with a focus on governance; strategic project management and business intelligence, and continue to build external partnerships to support the growth and complexity of the organisation. With a strong appetite for investment, the CIO will lead the team to deliver innovative products, ensuring strong digital governance and education of the organisation in relation to best practice for a cyber safe environment. The CIO will lead strategic asset management and procurement plans and build internal leadership capability to support the continuing growth of the digital teams and broader organisation.
