BPDTS Ltd provides dedicated services to the Department for Work and Pensions. Our digital, data and technology specialists work closely with experts in DWP Digital’s community to make digital services quicker, simpler and more efficient for the millions of people that use them. Our mission is to be the partner of choice for DWP for tech services and an employer of choice for the very best tech talent.

Your role will be based in your choice of our easy-to-reach digital hubs in either Manchester, Newcastle, Blackpool, Leeds or London. There will be some travel to other hubs:

We provide our teams with the latest tech and tooling, and foster a collaborative culture to help our agile, multidisciplinary teams think big and try new things.

We have a range of facilities across the sites including coffee shops and restaurants, table tennis, yoga, a swimming pool, gym facilities and loads more. Get in touch to find out more about your preferred location.
