The Department for Work and Pensions is committed to providing services which embrace diversity and which promote equality of opportunity.
Who we are
The DWP is the largest government department. We promote opportunity and independence for all through modern, customer-focused services by helping people to achieve their potential through employment, so that they are able to provide for their children and to work and save for secure retirement.
What we do
What we do can transform lives ¬– helping children out of poverty, people to find jobs, supporting those out of work or providing security in retirement.
What we can offer
We offer a wide range of career opportunities for senior civil servants at Board level, for Directors and Deputy Directors. DWP is probably the only organisation where you could have extremely different careers every few years, ranging from law to communications to HR to IT to policy formation.
What we ask from you
We need a diversity of knowledge and experience, a commitment to continuous improvement in a fast changing environment and the ability to Lead and motivate performance within our demanding and challenging department.
Why a diverse workforce is important to us
We want the best people from all backgrounds; we want to attract leaders and professionals from every part of society, to bring further understanding and fresh insights to our organisation.
Government diversity programme
The DWP has led the way in implementing the Governments diversity programme. The principles of the 10 point plan are embedded throughout the DWP; our values mirror this commitment, but we are never complacent, and strive to improve and be an exemplar for diversity.
