in brief The Territory Insurance Office (TIO) has advertised for a new chief information officer to replace its current executive Tom Higgins.
The TIO is a government-backed corporation that supplies insurance, including protection for banking and motor accidents to the people of the Territory. The company confirmed that Higgins was on his way out, but did not state his reasons for leaving.
"The successful candidate will possess a deep understanding of the [systems development life cycle] and a proven track record of delivering complex [information and communications technology] solutions," the advertisement said. The chief information officer will report to the chief financial officer, the advertisement noted.
Initially offering a three-year fixed-term contract with a $200,000 salary, a bonus plan and relocation expenses to the Northern Territory, the role will entail the chief information officer keeping a close eye on business process management, business intelligence, application development and infrastructure.
