Director of Technology & Digital Transformation

The UK, emerging from the Covid-19 pandemic, has huge needs. We expect poverty, hunger and indebtedness to grow. We expect churches to respond and be moved to meet this need. Over the coming years CAP’s services will need to scale and respond to meet this growing need. In particular, our flagship debt service needs re-imagining for this new era. We now need a Director of Technology and Digital Transformation to bring strategic leadership to this work. God has given us a mandate to inspire and equip churches across the UK to help people out of poverty and see them become followers of Jesus. If your heart and passion is for this, come and join us.

The role

The role is to work closely with the COO and Core Team to agree our strategy for digital transformation.  The post holder will bring strategic leadership in the areas of technology provision and digital business transformation.  This role exists to transform the way CAP operates: be that in future systems, tooling, processes, or ways of working.

In particular this role will plan a major leadership role in the transformation of CAP’s flagship Debt Service. We expect the demand for this service, from church partners and clients, to grow substantially post-covid, and we are underway with a major transformation programme for our debt service. Digital will be at the heart of this transformation process.

Who we're looking for

We are looking for a candidate who is passionate about the church reaching out with good news and hope to those living in poverty. Someone who will bring their unique skills in digital or tech backgrounds to improve, and at times transform, the way we serve our church partners and our clients.

CAP celebrates the value of diversity and our aim is for our workforce to be as inclusive as possible as well as representing the communities we serve. With this in mind, we welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from candidates from black and ethnic minority backgrounds. We are committed to continue building an environment that embraces diversity and includes all.
