DTO Embarks On Recruitment Campaign
The DTO will recruit around 20 developers, designers, researchers and product managers, stating that it is seeking expressions of interest “from anyone with the passion and skills to deliver public services online that are simpler and easier to use”.
Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull described it as “an exciting initiative”, however noted that it is “also complex and requires significant cultural change”.
“Government services don’t face competition in the traditional sense but that doesn’t mean they should be immune from the disruptive technologies that are having an impact right across the economy,” Turnbull stated.
“The DTO needs to adopt an agile, start-up-like culture, so it’s important that we recruit people with the right mix of skills and attitude to speed up the transformation of government services.”
