Want to be part of something really big? If you’re creative and curious to learn, want to be empowered to make decisions and challenge the norm, and want to bring BIG ideas to a MASSIVE digital challenge then you’ll love it here. And we’d love to hear from you.
We are looking for Finance Officers to work with us on one of the biggest transformation digital programmes in Europe.
In BPDTS Ltd you’ll join a new organisation with a unique set of challenges for finance professionals. This is a real opportunity for the right person to shape and define this role
You will be part of an organisation responsible for the delivery of digital platforms and services, real-time analytics and flexible infrastructure, providing secure and resilient services to DWP, with the power to make a difference to the lives of 22 million UK citizens.
You and your role
Working with a high degree of autonomy, you will support the Finance Manager with day to day running, with tasks including month-end activity, analysing financial data, provision of month-end accounts, invoice processing, liaising with contractor providers and lots more.
You should have worked in finance before, for example you may be a part qualified accountant. And an accountancy qualification is desirable (but not essential); equivalent experience is just as valuable.

It’s a fast paced, dynamic and we think unique role, and a real opportunity for anyone building a career in finance.

- Strong IT skills with the ability to learn other IT packages quickly, in particular Microsoft Excel skills including using / developing complex spreadsheets for financial modelling.
- Flexible and adaptable approach together with the drive to be self-motivated and be able to work independently without close supervision.
Where will you work?
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.
