Scottish Ministers have consistently emphasised the importance of digital infrastructure as a key priority in supporting Scotland’s economy. The Covid-19 pandemic has underlined the fundamental importance of Digital Connectivity, and continued delivery of improved Digital Connectivity in Scotland is at the forefront of Scottish Government’s recently updated Digital Strategy.
Scottish Government’s Digital Connectivity Division manages a portfolio of high profile programmes delivering increased capacity and coverage in fixed broadband and mobile connectivity, as well as managing a strategic agenda in relation to core digital infrastructure, green datacentres and international connectivity.
The ability to efficiently collect, manage, analyse and share high volumes of complex project data is fundamental to the effective delivery of digital infrastructure programmes. This function is delivered centrally across all SG digital infrastructure programmes by the Digital Connectivity Information Management (DCIM) unit. DCIM forms a key functional pillar within SG Digital Connectivity Division, working closely alongside Policy and Programme Delivery.
As part of DCIM you will develop an understanding of the current and future digital infrastructure landscape across Scotland. Working collaboratively with both internal and external stakeholders to form a picture of connectivity in Scotland you will use data from a range of commercial broadband suppliers to identify gaps and opportunities, report on delivery progress, and deliver valuable evidence-based insight and understanding of the continually changing picture of digital infrastructure across the nation.
