Job description

DWP.  Digital with Purpose.

“The scale here is huge; the ask is often complex and the context unique”

We’re looking to add four Business Analysts to our team. You’ll perform core BA functions on a critical and high profile project, directly related to our ongoing covid-19 response.

The pandemic means that accessible, robust digital products and services have never been more important to our users, or to dedicated DWP colleagues working to support them.

We’re the UK’s largest government department, and we’re taking on a generational transformation of government products, services and ways of working.  It is complex, unique challenging and driven by an extraordinary purpose – lifting people out of poverty and helping people into work.

We work across a mixed economy of new, legacy and hybrid systems, so we’ll need you to be adaptable and able to develop and deliver a hybrid approach. Our disciplined digital teams are leveraging cutting edge technology, thinking and user centric design to optimise products and services used by 22 million people and 110,000 DWP colleagues and agents.

What skills, knowledge and experience are we looking for?

We don’t care what industry or path you have taken to build the skills you have, we just need you to show us you have what it takes.

For your best chance to land an interview (where you can really show us what you’re all about), tailor and structure your application to address the above essential criteria. Just submitting your CV/employment history won’t give us the detail we need to assess your application effectively.

You’ll work on our Data and Analytics team

The objective for the Data and Analytics team is to focus on knowledge transfer, transparency, agile, iterative ways of working to support fast paced delivery in a dynamic environment providing best in class services and continually improving them.

You’ll support your team in delivering consistent products with common capabilities, features, and design that meet users’ needs.

The technologies will be shared and able to collect data about use, user experience and performance in a level of detail that was previously impossible. To do this, we will build-in reuse and consistency, rather than reinventing and duplicating products and features.

Details. Wages. Perks.

Your home location will be in your choice of Leeds, London, Newcastle-upon-Tyne or Sheffield.

We also all have the tech and tools we need to enable our people to work flexibly, and many of us are working remotely at the moment due to COVID-19.

Salary in London is up to £45,018, and up to £40,666 everywhere else. We offer a brilliant civil service pension with employer contributions worth 27%, and a generous leave package starting at 26 days.

We also have a broad benefits package built around your work-life balance which includes:
