The NRC is on an ambitious Digital Transformation journey to become a leader in the use of data and technology to deliver better. Having made the transition to cloud, NRC is now investing resources in building an ecosystem of digital tools that range from back-office ERP to end-user field-based applications. Given NRC’s operating environments, the challenges are many and require context-specific ICT leadership, adaptation and problem-solving.
NRC believes that the use of technology can be the pathway to doing more with less, enabling both efficiencies and new ways of working to tackle “wicked problems”. Recognising we are not alone in this, NRC has coordinated and collaborated with peers on technology implementation and continues to do so through organisations such as NetHope and other forums. Another increasingly important aspect of NRC’s technology ambition is partnering with technology providers who have an interest in putting their solutions to work for impact.
The role of the Regional ICT Adviser will be fundamental to NRC effectively succeeding in the implementation of technology solutions to drive scale and impact across its operations.
