  • "We are encouraged to be innovative and see improved ways of working."

Try something different | Try T&C

Thank you for your interest in our current opportunities.

Technology and change is at the heart of change initiatives across the county council working with a wide range of services including highways, adult and children’s social care, health, schools, adult education, libraries, highways, trading standards and countryside services, as well as working with partners in the public, private and voluntary sector. It incorporates our ICT, projects and change teams, working together to provide digital solutions, with a wide range of exciting career opportunities whatever your level of qualification or experience.

TRY T&C image.jpg

The next five years will continue to witness significant changes across the whole of the public sector. But there will still be a need to provide high levels of service to our customers set against the backdrop of reduced budgets, citizens’ changing needs and changing expectations.

With these new challenges will come new opportunities - working with communities to develop innovative approaches to service delivery, innovative use of technology to generate efficiencies; more customer self-service and 'digital by default' services; exploring commercial opportunities to generate income; introducing alternative ways of delivering services and new ways of working.

If you have a 'can do' attitude, strong interpersonal skills, a performance focus, ability to influence key stakeholders and take them with you, have experience of being involved in change projects to a variety of stakeholders’ matched with creativity, passion and resilience then we look forward to receiving your application for posts in one of our teams.

Have a look at the different service areas where we have exciting opportunities below.

Being 'digital by default' enables greater flexibility around where you choose to work from and means that working from home or remote working from another office is one of the major benefits to working for the council. This connectivity can ensure that in extreme weather conditions people can safely work from home instead of risking a treacherous journey.

Northallerton also has great connectivity through the road and rail networks, being close to the A1 but also on the main north / south train line. Technology and change is based at County Hall, which is two minutes' walk from the train station and makes the daily commute much less stressful!

If you live a bit further afield and the commute would be an issue then the options to work from home two or three days a week could be considered, depending on service needs. Due to the digital nature of the functions that T&C perform, many people enjoy the benefits that this flexibility affords.

Projects and Change Services

The teams in projects and change services are responsible for working with all NYCC services to identify, define and plan changes to deliver service improvements and cashable savings.  This includes developing innovative approaches to service delivery, innovative use of technology to generate efficiencies; more customer self-service and “digital by default” services; exploring commercial opportunities to generate income; introducing alternative ways of delivering services and new ways of working.
