Hackney is London's most diverse and dynamic borough. Reaching from the Square Mile to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, this is an area of rapid economic growth, particularly in technology, media, fashion and other creative industries. Hackney has more green spaces than any other inner London borough; some of the capital's finest schools; first class transport connections; excellent public services; and thriving arts, cultural and retail sectors. We seek people with ambition, creativity and commitment to ensure our economic growth provides benefits for everyone and creates opportunities to transform the lives of residents.
Hackney ICT is a great place to work! Our team support vital public services across the borough and are working every day to make things better for our residents and businesses.
Hackney Council is also a great place to develop your career. We offer a wide range of opportunities to learn new skills through training, mentoring and by working alongside some of the best digital agencies in the country. We are developing a new Digital Leadership Academy and will be launching an exciting apprenticeship programme in spring 2018, with 18 apprentice roles across our service.

Making sure that Hackney’s staff and partner organisations have access to the information they need is a vital part of delivering services to the borough’s residents and businesses. And making sure that the Council is keeping people’s information secure and using it in the right ways is vital to keeping their trust.
As Information Management Officer you will support colleagues across the wide range of Council services, helping them understand their responsibilities, responding to their requests for help, delivering training and supporting projects that will improve our information management practices. You will work creatively, using modern technologies, to transform the way that electronic records are created, stored and disposed of across the authority. You will work as a part of a team to create and update Hackney retention schedules, improve discovery and develop management controls across new and existing systems. You will help review the Council’s management of paper records, onsite and in offsite storage.
You will have a good understanding of records and information management, systems and tools, and also an enthusiasm for sharing this with your colleagues. You will often work autonomously, managing your own time to meet agreed deadlines, developing your knowledge and expertise and helping to identify improvements to the ways that we work across the Council. You will take a collaborative approach to your work, including coaching and mentoring colleagues so that we can deliver successful results through working effectively across our teams and with our partners.
