Enriching Lives Driving Growth

DCMS is helping to make Britain the world’s most creative, digital and engaged nation - an exciting place to live, visit and do business. Our work supports strong and resilient communities. It is about creating a world-leading digital economy, promoting the UK’s cultural, sporting and artistic heritage and building a bigger, stronger civil society. Wherever people live and whatever their background, we want their life to be enriched by what we (and the sectors we support) do.

Our sectors are important not only for their economic contribution and growth; they are critical to creating a global UK, an essential partner for trade and investment. And they enrich lives and connect us.  We are there in the big moments of national life that bring us together – cheering on our athletes to gold, the silent reflection of Remembrance Sunday - and in the community spirit of local charity volunteers. We are promoting the UK as the best place for digital investment and innovation, and as the safest place to be online and to start and grow a digital business. From the Arts Council to UK Sport, the DCMS family reaches across the country and into every community.

Our people are not your stereotypical civil servant. They are inspired by and drawn from the creative, cultural and technology sectors. We are diverse and welcoming. We embrace fresh-thinking and ideas. And we hope you will make your career with us.

We are looking for individuals with fresh ideas and different perspectives to join us in locations across the UK. Interested?

DCMS locations across the UK: London, Manchester, Cardiff,  Belfast, Edinburgh.

We are establishing an office presence in the locations above – find out what opportunities are available.

Values & Behaviours

  • One DCMS” – we value & develop everyone, sharing success
  • Respect for all; celebrating diversity
  • We empower and challenge each other within a no blame culture
  • We are professional; prioritising work and taking responsibility to get the job done
  • Keep DCMS a great place to work, attracting the best people.

Diversity & Inclusion

At DCMS the case for a diverse and inclusive workforce is well understood. The Civil Service Talent Action Plan sets out that to build a world class, 21st century organisation, we need to recruit and retain the very best talent, irrespective of their background. It also states that that all decisions relating to the employment of an individual must be made on the basis of merit, blind to any factors other than the ability of the individual to do the job.

All DCMSers should feel able to come to work as themselves, happy in the knowledge that we as an organisation will not discriminate in any way that prevents them doing their job and progressing their careers. In short, happy people will perform well and deliver organisation and business objectives – in our case “driving growth and enriching lives”.

To that end, the DCMS Diversity and Inclusion plan is built around four themes:

Our Talent – We will identify all the talent in DCMS and help them progress, removing barriers that prevent diverse groups from succeeding.

Our Culture – We will be an open, inclusive and fair culture driven from the top. We will be leaders who look beyond bias, who constantly ask, look and reflect on our leadership style and who relentlessly seek out talent on merit.

Our Behaviour – We will have zero tolerance on any form of bullying or harassment behaviour.

Declaration rates – we will take action to increase our diversity percentage declaration rate so we can better understand our workforce.

Our Diversity Plan sets out the concrete actions we will take with key performance measures and owners which will be monitored by our Permanent Secretary.
