DEVELOP AN EXTRAORDINARY FUTURE IN A WORLD-CLASS DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT
Why us, why now?
This is an unprecedented time for digital, data and technology in the UK government. Countries like the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are modelling their digital transformation on ours. Why? Because we're putting user needs at the heart of digital development to make government work better for everyone. We're 17,000 colleagues across government, and we're scaling up nationwide. Our new cloud model is giving us unparalleled agility and bravery to ensure government is equipped and inspired to deliver real, meaningful change. The potential to shape our society's future is enormous - and we want you to be part of it.
About the role
Being our Junior Developer is about being there for the team. You'll help with planning, reviewing and retrospectives, fixing bugs and addressing functionality issues as they arise. Working alongside colleagues across BEIS, you'll deliver user stories and produce time estimates. All the while, you'll build rapport with the internal and external Digital community, developing a sound understanding of their needs. As well as supporting our Digital processes, you'll also tackle the technical challenges they bring. You'll put accessibility and assisted digital users' needs at the forefront of our mind, and in every aspect of development. In addition, you'll help out with administration and operational support at community meetings, as well as organising events and maintaining information or data.
What we're looking for
You're proactive and you plan ahead, working effectively under pressure and to tight deadlines. As well as being a self-starter, you're willing to learn and not afraid to fail. You're also great at identifying key issues and ensuring they get the attention they deserve, at the earliest opportunity. Quick to make effective decisions, you prioritise what's important. You're familiar with technical languages, particularly SharePoint, Azure, AWS, C#, Typescript and SQL. What's more, you know about GOV.UK and the Government Digital Service, and the service standard. And you're a team player, ready to pick up varied tasks to make sure we deliver.
Help shape a truly digital government
If you're excited by an ever-evolving technological landscape and a fast-moving digital change agenda, this is a fantastic opportunity to apply your skills to do what matters. Here, you'll be helping us respond to the changing needs and expectations of millions of people, delivering services that are simpler, faster and easier to use. And in return, you'll enjoy the fantastic range of benefits the Civil Service has to offer.
