Quiet week. Not much really caught my eye so only six jobs made the cut. I assume everyone was on holiday or trying to get tickets to the Banksy exhibition instead of advertising jobs.
Also it is pretty much all London again – just one up in Scotland. I have to be honest while I was always aware of the concentration of interesting jobs in London compared to everywhere else it is starting to become a bit disheartening the more I do this!
There are a couple of the jobs I just wanted to highlight – the ‘Open Standards’ role at GDS has the potential to be hugely important if the concept of ‘Government as a Platform’ manages to get support in the Spending Review. An agreed set of open standards will be the glue that holds it all together and the battle will be to avoid the ‘not invented here’ mentality that is often an issue in the public sector.
The other is the job with the EPIC team at DfID. For a start who wouldn’t want to working for a team called E.P.I.C. – you’d start everyday thinking you were in a 60’s spy movie! More seriously DfID have been doing amazing work in the digital/data space for a while now and it is important stuff.
As usual the other jobs are a mix of data, product and user research roles at places I am probably working in various alternate universes🙂
