Do you like the idea of helping to solve some of the most important strategic questions facing government today?

Do you like using architectural tools to help execute that strategy?

If so, DWP is looking for senior Business Architects to help design the services of the future.

DWP is massive.

We pay out nearly £1bn every single day and help some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

We support over 20 million people and have a huge responsibility to ensure that everyone can depend on the state when they need it most.

Our services cover everything from helping children and families right through to supporting relatives of lost loved ones with bereavement support and funeral care.

In between we find jobs for people, we support people financially where they are unable to work due to health conditions and we ensure everybody has the money they need to live during their retirement years.

We are first and foremost a people focused organisation and that’s why we want to attract the best possible people to come and help us create the best possible services for the people who need our support.

That’s where you come in……
