Centre for Digital Public Services appoints joint Chief Executive
20 October 2021
In a first for the public sector in Wales, the Centre for Digital Public Services (CDPS) has announced a job share for its new Chief Executive Officer, with the appointment of Myra Hunt and Harriet Green.
They will be joining from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), where they held the role of joint Chief Digital Officer for five years, leading on digital service transformation. Before this they led the global digital transformation of education services at the British Council.
Jessica Leigh Jones, Chair of the CDPS said: “I’m pleased to welcome Myra and Harriet as our new joint Chief Executive following a rigorous recruitment process. It’s an exciting time for the CDPS, for digital and for Wales. They bring with them a wealth of experience in digital transformation and communications as well as a unique and unrivalled partnership for strategic success.
“It remains to be said that we are very grateful to Sally Meecham, for growing the profile and impact of the organisation. She will leave us in a strong position to achieve the aims of the Digital Strategy for Wales.”
Congratulations to you both. We have a job share network at Welsh Government and I’m sure we’d love you to talk to a future meeting of our network as we are keen to promote job sharing. Please get in touch if you can in due course
