The essential guide to IT transformation

The Government is looking to recruit an Internet luvvie to head up its New Media Team in the Cabinet Office. According to an ad posted on Guardian Unlimited, the job comes burdened with responsibility. "You'll be known throughout Whitehall and the wider public sector not just for taking on a unique job, but for offering advice on Web technology, reporting on the progress through cyberspace of public sector organisations, advising Ministers and representing the team within and outside Government," it says. "There's probably no need to spell out the kind of influence you're going to have," it claims. You're not wrong there. You'll also be responsible for assessing how the Government can use the Web, digital TV, WAP "and more" to deliver its spin. And all for the not very new media salary of 60,000 a year - and not a chance of a stash of IPO cash in sight. It took some 18 months for the Government to appoint its e-envoy. Who knows, this position could even be filled by the next election... if they're lucky. ® Related Links Head of new media team job spec
