East Lothian Council has a pipeline of information systems to be replaced or upgraded spanning several years. Many of the current systems are embedded in multiple processes across several service areas and their replacement will be a significant change for the organisation. It is intended that any new system will be implemented alongside service and process improvements in order to enable the Council to provide a more efficient and effective service to residents while supporting the Council’s aim of rationalising existing systems to reduce cost, risk and complexity.  This post will work with the team to implement the newly procured housing management system and new processes which will transform how ELC will deliver housing services.
