Welcome Message from Oliver Morley, Chief Executive

This is my opportunity to say why I think this is one of the most exciting Chief Technology Officer (CTO) jobs on offer in the UK today, particularly if you want to make a genuine difference to the businesses, and millions of people who transact with us every year. In the last two years, we have made three really significant changes to the DVLA, changes that offer you the chance to innovate, to develop world class services, and a highly-scalable digital platform that will be at the heart of motoring transactions in the UK for years to come.

First, we’ve brought our IT in-house as of September this year. For the first time - and unusually for an organisation of this scale - there will be no systems integrator between you and your user. Your agile development teams will lead a mix of suppliers to deliver real change at pace.

Second, the regulatory structure is now in place to enable new services and platforms. We’ve abolished the tax disc and counterpart. We have rationalised service delivery across the UK to support online, and cut fees as well. We have in place what we need to make DVLA a digital business.

Third, we’ve made our first steps to build real local capability in the Swansea Bay area. Our philosophy is we have a really significant role to play here, and we’ve been working with TechHub and local universities to make sure that the skills we need are here, and that we’re putting something back - serving the UK from South Wales.

The change we have delivered over the past two years is only the start. We want a Chief Technology Officer who can innovate, transform, and deliver the next steps. I look forward to your application.
