If so, now is an exciting time to be joining the Digital, Data and Technology (DDAT) profession in Welsh Government. We’re looking for people with a variety of different skills to help support the digital transformation of services to citizens, transform our internal ways of working, and manage and develop our technical infrastructure and services in Welsh Government.

Through our Digital Strategy for Wales, Ministers have raised the bar for their expectations of how our public services are delivered digitally, taking a modern, user-centred, and agile approach to their design. Within Welsh Government the Permanent Secretary has set out his vision for changing the way we do things with digital, data and technology driving integrated and intelligent services for staff – which at the end of the day will help us deliver better for the people of Wales.

We want people with the right skills and passion for modern, world class, public service delivery to help us drive forward this digital and technology agenda.

What jobs are available?

Joining the DDAT profession in Welsh Government can open a range of possibilities for your future career. You may start your career in one area of work, such as improving internal services with digital innovation, before stepping into a wholly different context where you could be collaborating across the Welsh public sector to shape digital services supporting the Ukrainian people during crisis.

We’ve already got jobs advertised to support our internal digital innovation and technology teams – we’re looking for technical architects, cloud engineers, developers, and business analysts. These posts will be at the heart of our internal change and transformation programme – as well as being key roles in ensuring the organisation is resilient and secure.

This week we will be advertising a range of jobs in our Digital Learning teams across many of the digital, data and technology job families. These jobs support our Hwb EdTech programme of work, delivering a world-class digital learning environment to children and young people across Wales.

Interested? Applying is easy…

Applying is straightforward – go to the job advert and send us your CV in the template provided. Using the template is important to ensure we get the information we need from you about your skills and experience. You’ll then be asked to take a technical test and, if successful in the test, a remote interview.

The deadline is 12 September for the first set of jobs, and the Digital Learning jobs will be available from 26 August to mid-September.
