St Helens Borough Council

Ste Sharples

Ste has worked at the Council for almost 40 years, and spent many years in the Councils Development section designing and implementing a wide range of in-house systems, as well as supporting most of the package systems that the Council operates.


A developer by background, Ste moved on from Development to become Head of IT, and then to his current role of Assistant Director for ICT & Digital, where he has recently delivered the Councils new ICT, Digital, and Data strategies, and is currently taking the digital lead in the Councils Customer Experience programme, and the introduction of Artificial Intelligence across Council services.


His background and experience across all things ICT and Digital meant that he was well positioned to deal with the Cyber Attack the Council suffered in August 2023.
