A wide range of exciting roles available to people in IT are being promoted with the launch of a new creative campaign.
The unique and humorous approach to the recruitment campaign hopes to attract a diverse audience to join our #ITcrowd in one of many technical and non-technical roles.
The campaign is hoping to encourage people to join the growing Digital and Technology team, which now services the digital and technical needs of Northamptonshire Police, Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.
From online hate to cyber fraud, technology has shown unprecedented growth presenting new opportunities to commit crime. We are expanding our digital team to meet the challenges we now face.
With better technology, we can be more effective in predicting and preventing crime. Share information more efficiently and deal with ever increasing digital evidence.
The public’s expectations of how they choose to interact with us are also changing. The public now expect us to have a significant online presence and ease of access for services.
We’re adapting and responding to the digital change to ensure we can be more effective in problem solving and ensuring our frontline officers and staff have the best tools to protect the public.
Clare Chambers, Chief Digital Officer, said: “We want to be known as a great place to work, but to be this, we need attract the right employees, and to add great people to our workforce we have launched a campaign that will stand out.
“The campaign has a measured balance of humour and pays homage to the 80s – a time that saw significant technological developments. Not to mention that this is an era that has made a real comeback in popular culture. We hope that this approach will not only attract attention to the vacancies but will promote the organisations as accessible and relevant to today’s audiences.
“While we hope the creative approach will attract attention, there are real opportunities for people to begin a fulfilling career with us. We are one of only a small number of forces that also has a unique police and fire collaboration. This means that our joint digital and technology departments service the bespoke needs of both public services, as well the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.
“We also offer hybrid working, recognising the benefits of improved wellbeing from having greater autonomy and less commuting, meaning you can live anywhere in the UK and still connect to our systems.
“The satisfaction of creating, developing or managing systems that ultimately help the public offers job satisfaction like no other.”
