We are thrilled to announce that Matt Alcock has joined SmartCo as Client Engagement Director for the Public Sector! Wishing you a warm welcome from the entire SmartCo team.
We sat down with Matt to ask him a few questions about his career path, aspirations in his new role, what he’s looking forward to in the work and what excites him about working at SmartCo.
I’ve been providing services to the public sector for over 15 years now in a variety of roles and functions.
Initially, this was providing staffing solutions to a range of organisations before moving into the service space where I have operated now for the last eight years as a Client Engagement Director.
In this role, the focus is on delivering large and complex IT, digital and business transformation services through a variety of frameworks and partners.
The new role involves wearing a few different hats!
The first (and most central) part of my role is to take our service offerings to market within the public sector. We’re creating something great here that we all stand behind and will deliver value to our customers.
I’m excited to get it out there and grow our footprint in this important sector!
The other parts of my role are to expand our internal talent capability as we continue on our journey of growth.Theres a huge number hires to make across the business to keep pace with demand. in addition, working with and growing our associate community – this is where the third part of my role comes into play, to really take hold of and own the relationship with our all-important SmartCo network community.
I’m really drawn to the sheer variety the role has to offer. I get a buzz from helping clients solve business problems, I enjoy being in amongst it all and adding value where I can.
Likewise, I am passionate about delivering exceptional services to the public sector, as clichéd as it may sound. It’s great to see how our work tangibly improves the lives of people across the country whether they’re dealing with the NHS, the Home Office or the Police.
Cloud has enabled the public sector to modernise in a big way, but there is still a lot of work to do in order to realise the true value and ROI that it brings.
SmartCo has a very entrepreneurial feel that brings a real buzz to the place. They’ve put together a top team, with great industry experience. We all know the clear goals that we are working towards and I can’t wait to start realising them.
At the same time, it’s a very welcoming organisation where you feel like you can be yourself and get on with the job!
