Company Updates

  • "I joined DWP four years ago, which was the best thing I could have done for my career progression. Prior to my move to the Civil Service, I worked for a couple of private firms where there was limited scope for development. Despite an initial decrease in salary, I was promoted nine months later thanks to the continuous support I received in achieving my goals. The DWP is a safe, secure and inclusive place to work where the possibilities are endless." Megan Renzulli UC Full Service Team Leader


  • "Since joining DWP 15 years ago I have been given plenty of opportunities for professional development. DWP offers many work based qualifications and I have always felt supported and encouraged throughout my learning journey." Kim Lees Business Support Manager

  • "I joined the DWP just over 3 years ago, and can honestly say I love my job! After completing my L3 Apprenticeship in Operational Delivery, I was offered the role of ASG Capability Manager and have never looked back. Working for the DWP has made me feel valued and invested in. There are a wealth of development opportunities out there and I am currently undertaking the L6 Degree Apprenticeship in Professional Management. " Katie Hopkins District Capability Manager

  • “As a Disability Employment Adviser I am given the flexibility to work in innovative ways to help customers with health conditions improve their lives, access all support available and move into work. I help our work coaches and customers explore new challenges; helping to open their eyes to opportunities they may never considered before by sourcing work experience, work trials and voluntary work placements. Each day provides new challenges, with these challenges come some of my most rewarding moments. I feel that people who work on the front line in Jobcentre’s are in a privileged position, we get the chance to be directly involved and make a real difference to people’s lives. It makes coming to work worthwhile.” Karen Jones Disability Employment Adviser

  • Nick's Testimonial “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.” Nick Crowford PIP Operations Manager

  • Mez's Testimonial "In my 27years of being a Civil Servant, I have been privilege enough to have had various career opportunities in DWP, from processing benefits in a local job to providing expert HR advice and coaching to the Department’s managers on complex HR queries to now as a HR Business Partner. I have also had the opportunity to go on loan to two other Government departments and on secondment to a ‘not for profit organisation’ where I gained invaluable knowledge and experience. I was commissioned to project manage the business’s website (something I had never done before). Working for the Civil service has allowed me to develop my career whilst having a family as well as enjoy all the benefits it has to offer." Mez Fokeer HR Business Partner
