DWP. Digital with Purpose.
DWP is the UK's largest government department. We deliver products, service, support and payments to people at key times in their lives.
We're using technology to transform the way these products and services are delivered to more than 20 million users. We're making our services more efficient, and reliable, and easier for everyone to access.
We're also equipping around 90,000 DWP colleagues with the tech and tools they need to better support our users and spend more time doing the work they love and which gives real value (and less time doing the stuff that tech solutions can do for them).
