Launch your digital career with an apprenticeship at DWP Digital

Join our digital and technology apprenticeships programme and you’ll get a permanent job in the Civil Service, with a starting salary from £27,565 and full benefits. You’ll work on real projects that make a positive impact on millions of people’s lives and gain industry-standard qualifications.

Register your interest in future apprenticeships

Our first round of apprenticeships are now closed, but we’ll be launching other digital apprenticeships in the future. Register your interest, and we’ll contact you as soon as we have any opportunities.

What you’ll get as an apprentice

Depending on the apprenticeship you choose, you’ll have the opportunity to gain technical skills in:

  • using big data and analytics
  • artificial intelligence
  • micro services
  • application programming interfaces (APIs)
  • hybrid cloud services
  • cyber security
  • network design

We combine this hands-on experience with virtual learning, delivered by our partner provider, including one-to-ones with tutors and mentors, lab tutorials, and proper research projects. You’ll work on a one-to-one basis with a dedicated skills coach, and have weekly meetings with your tutor.

You’ll benefit from a stable job within the Civil Service, with plenty of career prospects, as part of a diverse, vibrant community.

You’ll also be based in one of our digital hubs, but we’re set up for remote working too. You’ll benefit from all the tech you need to get you up and running at home while social distancing.

DWP Digital has diverse customers, and is an inclusive employer. We welcome applications from diverse candidates.
