MHCLG looking for DDaT professionals for a new Birmingham HQ

A post-it saying MHCLG Digital Jobs

MHCLG Digital Jobs

The Digital Directorate in MHCLG is still less than three years old but things are going from strength to strength. As Chief Digital Officer, I am particularly proud of what we’ve achieved in this time:

we are the highest rated digital function in government, as voted for by senior managers in our departments, and the most improved for the second year running last year our Local Digital Collaboration Unit team won the Apolitical Global Public Service Team of the Year award our office technology helped the department to adjust to new ways of working during the pandemic we recently shipped new modern digital services, such as the Energy Performance Certificates service, and have improved internal corporate processes for our emergencies and resilience team to battle COVID-19

What’s more, important strategic policy in the department such as planning reforms are being designed on solid data and digital foundations.

Now a new chapter in the department’s digital function is opening up and we are excited to announce we are recruiting for roles in MHCLG’s new Birmingham HQ. 

Right now many of us are continuing to work from home where we can, but a new hybrid working environment beckons, and like many others in government we are keen to attract digital and technology talent from a wider pool across the UK

Our local government digital work means we get out and about perhaps more than most across the country during ‘normal’ times, and a fair number of us have home locations well outside the capital. We are no strangers to Birmingham and the West Midlands in particular, but this is the first time we have actively recruited outside London for core digital roles, and we are excited about building a new set of teams here.

Join the new Birmingham HQ

We are recruiting for the following roles:

Grade 7 Senior Delivery Manager (Closing date 12 November)  SEO Interaction Designer (Closing date 12 November) Grade 6 Lead Developer (Closing date 22 October) Grade 7 Senior Agile Business Analyst (Closing date 22 October) SEO Service Designer (Closing date 13 October) SEO User Researcher (Closing date 11 October)

We will also be recruiting for a number of other digital and technology roles in the coming weeks in both our London and Birmingham locations. These are likely to include:

Policy leads Technical advisors User researchers Delivery managers

The strength of our team is down to its people and culture, so please do apply if you’re interested in joining what we think is the best digital team in government.

Paul Maltby is Chief Digital Officer at MHCLG.
