“Since joining the DWP in September 2016 I have been provided with opportunities to step out of my comfort zone, in order to gain experience and confidence. This has helped me to move into a leadership role and pushed me to reach my potential.
Working for the DWP also gives you the opportunity to give something back to our society. Whilst it can be challenging, working to support some of the most vulnerable people in our society is incredibly rewarding.
It’s a wonderful opportunity to make a positive impact with your career.”
