    Unsurprisingly, both positions call for strong IT skills, leadership abilities, and experience managing a variety of stakeholders

    Broad shoulders and low self-worth would be of benefit.

      Must have a very thick skin and be a glutten for punishment, if El Reg reader, this can be demonstrated by achieving and maintaining an El Reg negative(?) silver badge (ie. more than 2000 down votes and still posting new comments for further down votes...).

    "bold plans" to create a "dynamic, agile technology organisation".

    They forgot "disruptive" the one word that will have the most effect on those affected.

    The true meaning of 'Network Manager'

    That's one crazy way of doing things

    Turkeys planning for Thanksgiving and Christmas, just as heads of networks and bosses for Crown Hosting and enterprise cloud services becoming part of HMRC IT and digital services teams, are never going to be great lovers of the task, are they, and pay to play with peanuts as a reward are no engaging incentive and such always compounds and exacerbates the problem to guarantee spectacular failure/abject performance from the sub-prime candidate executive base.

    "We're from the government and here to help you" ..... always has that creepy and unsavoury wicked Uncle Ernie edge as they fiddle about in the past in some of the greatest of fiddles.

    Jeez, way to underpay. I think I was earning more in a network manager role a decade back. Pay more and ensure you take someone from the private sector if you want a) something that works and b) something that's cost effective.

    Needs to be at least 50% bonus on top for that to be of interest.
