Digital careers with challenge, opportunity and impact

You’ll find lots of opportunities to develop your career here, whether you’re interested in digital and technology jobs in engineering, DevOps, agile delivery, data, product design, UX design, or starting your tech career with one of our digital apprenticeships.

Our teams are based in seven digital hubs around the country, and lots of us work flexibly or remotely when we need to.

Build and transform some of the UK’s biggest digital services

We need innovative, curious, and determined people to keep us moving forward. If you can rethink old approaches, and transform systems and services, there’s a place here for you.

Working with us, you’ll be empowered to make decisions, solve big, complex problems, and make a difference to millions of people.

You’ll get to put your skills to the test, using technology and innovation to tackle some of the most complex and important problems you’ll ever face.

A diverse digital workplace where everyone matters

Our diversity is a strength, and we want to be as reflective of the 22 million people we serve as possible.

For us to succeed, we need our people to be at their best and feel comfortable being themselves at work. The more diverse and inclusive we are, the more we can innovate, collaborate and build better services for our users.

As part of our team, you’ll benefit from a range of networks and support groups which benefit and improve the whole workplace, including:

  • Our Women in Digital group, which helps women achieve their ambitions in DWP Digital
  • The Race Action Group, which helps us address issues around race
  • DWP Pride, the department-wide LGBT+ network
  • Diversity and Inclusion Group, which advances and champions equality, diversity and inclusion

“We fundamentally believe that we will best meet our users’ needs, if our teams’ diversity represents the people we serve.”

Simon McKinnon, Chief Digital and Information Officer.

We know that key identities are underrepresented in some areas of DWP Digital. That’s why we want to attract new talent and ensure our existing colleagues can always be at their best — and have equal access to opportunities.

If you’re looking for a digital or technology job with lots of opportunity and real social impact, you’ll find a stimulating and fulfilling career with us.
