DFSI is a service provider and regulator.

ICT Assurance is part of ICT and Digital Government (IDG) and oversees major NSW Government ICT projects. The work we do ensures projects are delivered on time, on budget, and provide benefits for agencies and citizens. We’re a newly established capability in government which means there is plenty of opportunity to help shape and drive the way we are creating value.

Be part of something unique. The work we do impacts citizens every day and defines the future of the IT systems and digital capabilities that underpin critical NSW Government services such as schools, hospitals and justice.

You will work closely with major programme owners to understand their business, technical and delivery needs. You will support senior leaders and agency stakeholders through the assurance review framework, influence the success of projects, make recommendations about their viability, health and remedial actions.

About You
