Nadira Hussain, Head of ICT, London Borough of Enfield

An experienced ICT and change management leader with 20+ years of both private sector and extensive public sector experience who has worked in numerous roles across London both at the operational and strategic level; within the ICT service and other wider teams including digital, business improvement, transformation and customer services, the business and across shared services.

As the current Head of ICT at Enfield Council, Nadira is establishing the ICT & Digital Strategy, leading diverse teams to implement complex programmes and projects to deliver business priorities through exploiting digital transformation opportunities, facilitating the change to ways of working and realising efficiencies.

As President of SOCITM (2015/2016), Nadira focused on two key areas: the primary one being the ‘Women in IT’ (WIT) initiative – to attract more women into the Society, supporting the provision of personal development opportunities through the successful launch and delivery of the ‘Empowering Women in the Digital World’ leadership programme and improving the visibility of women more widely across the sector. The second was exploiting ways in which local government can improve service delivery and value for money through sharing. Nadira has continued to champion the WIT initiative to build on the great momentum realised, with the focus turning to how we attract young girls and ‘career returners’ into tech and the public sector.
