Jobs currently available are in infrastructure engineering, QA testing, business analysis, product management, service design and user research. Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, successful candidates will get to apply their skills to some of the country’s biggest IT projects, using innovation and technology to transform users’ experiences.

There’s never been a better time to join

DWP Digital is in the middle of a huge and exciting once-in-a generation digital transformation of its services, accelerated by coronavirus (COVID-19). Digital-first services are now more important than ever to customers. This has led to an increased requirement for specialist skills.

Recruitment processes have been adapted to make it easier for tech specialists to join the organisation. For example, they’re video interviewing instead of face-to-face, to keep people safe. New recruits are being provided with the tech to hit the ground running working from home, including laptops and mobile phones. And the organisation has introduced new technologies to support remote collaboration such as Microsoft Teams.

Director of Technology Services, Kenny Robertson, said: “Many people think that government technology lags other industries, it doesn’t! Here at DWP Digital we pride ourselves on pushing those difficult technology boundaries to help make our services better.

“We invest in technology solutions, services and our people for it to stay that way. If you want a rewarding career, with great people and you’re passionate about real technology solutions solving meaningful problems for society, then DWP may just be the place for you.”
