The vision and strategic direction of the department is committed to putting staff and students at the heart of everything it does whilst driving a digital first culture and leveraging opportunities for innovation.

With a new, agile structure IDG are in a strong position to build on its strengths and embed new, innovative ways to deliver effective solutions. Set up as seven functional areas which come together to deliver and achieve the collective vision – these are:

  • Portfolio Delivery

  • Library
  • Strategy, Enterprise Architecture and Innovation
  • Infrastructure & Operations
  • Information Security & Compliance

To achieve the IDG vision, the department will be recruiting additional skills within these areas. We currently have roles in the Strategy, Enterprise Architecture and Innovation and Infrastructure & Operations areas that will enable the functions to broaden the services offered to faculties, increase engagement with its end users and help to drive innovative and effective digital solutions.
