It’s more challenging than ever for local government technology functions to recruit and retain staff.

The recommendations and strategies in the infographic are presented in the report Transforming Recruitment and Retention. Within the report is a look into this challenging environment, the rise of flexible working, and experiences and approaches from interviewees: Matt Lewis, chief operating officer of SRS Wales and a Socitm vice-president; the London Borough of Hounslow; Adam Elliott and Andy Campbell-Critchley of Socitm Advisory; and Sam Hall, former chief digital officer for Welsh local government and now a director for Digital Health and Care Wales.
