8 March is International Womenโ€™s Day and this year's theme is inspiring inclusion.

The theme focuses on inspiring women to be included, creating a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment highlighting the crucial role of inclusion in achieving gender equality.

This month we will be celebrating our colleagues and championing allyship through a host of events and mentoring opportunities.

Almost 35% of our workforce are women and weโ€™ve seen an increase of women at Senior Civil Servant level rise from 39% to 50% in recent years.

Research shows that women rate company culture highly when looking for a job in the tech sector. DWP (Department for Work and Pensions) has a dedicated Womenโ€™s Network and Menopause Network providing communities of support, advice and guidance. Alongside the networks within DWP our Women in Digital and Women in Data forums provide a supportive community of women from all levels of the organisation.

The communities weโ€™ve created through these networks have been recognised across the tech industry. In 2023, we won Employer of the Year at the Women in IT awards and Company of the Year at the TechWomen100 awards for our commitment to supporting women and encouraging diversity in tech.

We also won Best Employer Careers Site at the Women in Tech Employer awards for our dedication to closing the gender gap in tech.

We have industrial placement opportunities for anyone studying an undergraduate Business, IT or Management degree.

If you're the sort of person who likes getting stuck into interesting problems, is eager to learn new things and is not afraid to ask questions, then you might be interested in a career in Business Analysis.

Business Analysts work with colleagues to:

๐Ÿ“Œ Focus efforts on building things that people need
๐Ÿ“Œ Bring about changes and improvements to organisations
๐Ÿ“Œ Help improve how citizens interact with government
๐Ÿ“Œ Break down complex information to make it easier to understand
๐Ÿ“Œ Support and contribute to core activities

The placement lasts for twelve months and starts in September 2024. If you perform well in the role and wish to continue, there may also be the option to become permanent. This means that you could complete your placement and return for your final year at university with a guaranteed job on completion!
