Centre for Digital Public Services

Jack Rigby new head of technology at CDPS alongside joint CEO Myra Hunt

The Centre for Digital Public Services (CDPS) has appointed Jack Rigby as its new head of technology. The arm’s length body of the Welsh Government was set up in 2021 to help the public sector in Wales provide better digital services.

Mr Rigby previously worked as an IT architect at HMRC where he designed changes to new and legacy tax systems. In his new role, he will be responsible for communicating complex problems and translating them into everyday language people can understand.

Mr Rigby said: “The digital ambitions of Wales and CDPS really excite me. There’s an opportunity here to set the standard for working together as a public sector and I can’t wait to play my part. Through running innovation labs to create user-centred services and advocating an open data approach across services, I have seen first-hand the pressures faced by local government and the challenges using traditional IT procurement approaches can bring.”

Joint CEO of CDPS Myra Hunt said: “The head of tech is an important role for CDPS and central to achieving our mission of making better use of technology to improve public services for people in Wales. Coming to us from a senior digital role at HMRC, Jack has the right mix of technology expertise and experience to help us deliver on that mission and help shape the future of CDPS.

“I would urge leaders in the sector to get in touch with him to start those important conversations so we can be more efficient in our procurement and get technology to deliver better outcomes and transform services.”
