Queensland government seeks CIO to drive IT reforms

CIO will lead the Queensland Government ICT Strategy

The Department of Science, Information Technology and the Arts (DSITIA) in Queensland has gone to market for a new CIO to lead the state government’s recently announced ICT reforms.

The DSITIA posted an advertisement on Seek on Friday for a new CIO to drive “significant transformation, creativity and change in partnership with agency CIOs.”

The role is paying between $331,456 and $393,355 per annum, which includes superannuation and a motor vehicle allowance.
