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.
