My attention has again been drawn to the Civil Service jobs website, and the latest vacancies being offered within the Cabinet Office – and specifically, the Government Digital Service. They’re looking for, among others:
- 7 ‘interaction designers’, on salary packages ‘up to £97,500 per annum’
- 2 ‘creative leads’, ‘up to £111,000 per annum’
- 4 ‘web ops’, ‘up to £73,000 per annum’
- a ‘Delivery Team Manager’, ‘up to £97,500 per annum’
- 3 ‘technical architects’, ‘up to £97,500 per annum’and… brace yourself…
- 22 developers, ‘up to £73,000 per annum’
Some of these labels are familiar: for example, I blogged back in October about a previous round of vacancies, which included:
- Two creative leads, £80k
- Two technical architects, £90k
- 12 developer positions, £65k
- Two ‘web ops’, £65k
- A delivery team manager, £85k
- Three interaction designers, £59k
Increased demand, with across-the-board salary increases? Or perhaps they weren’t offering quite enough last time to fill those previously advertised vacancies?
Update: Confirmation from GDS’s Tony Singleton – ‘We did not fill all the posts advertised in October so are readvertising those along with additional ones.’
For the record, that current round of vacancies has a potential total just short of £3.2 million; and that’s before overheads, NI, etc etc.
There are also some slightly less glamorous positions, such as an Internal Network Manager and Internal Network Administrator, both on £29-38k. But these are permanent, where the others are Fixed Term.
Closing dates on all of these, if you’re interested, is 11 January; and they are all open to external candidates. Something to keep you occupied over Christmas, maybe.
