A new public body replacing the Office of Fair Trading and Competition Commission is searching for a new chief technology officer (CTO).

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), which launches in April, is looking for a CTO who will design, deliver and maintain a technology platform for the organisation.

“[The CTO] will play a key role in the early days of our organisation and beyond, designing, delivering and maintaining a resilient and effective technology platform that underpins our business objectives and supports a well-connected, responsive and agile workforce,” the CMA announced.

The CMA also wants the CTO to help establish the organisation as a “pioneer” in its use of technology and as a “desirable place to work”. Business skills are also important for the job, which will require the CTO to communicate the CMA’s technology vision to technical and non-technical audiences.

“You should be confident translating business goals into practical action on the ground and offer experience in delivering a wide range of technology and communication infrastructure,” the job advert states.

The salary range is between £57,500 and £64,400. The deadline for application is 17 March.

The CTO role is one of a number of senior roles that the CMA is looking to fill.
