More about Department for Education

Diversity & Inclusion

At Department for Education, we are a community that works to achieve a highly-educated society in which opportunity is equal for all, no matter what their background or family circumstances.

Our New Diversity and Inclusion Strategy launched on Monday 15 January 2018, has set out our aims to help us become one of the most diverse employers to work for in the UK.

We don’t have a set ‘mould’ of what a Civil Servant should look like. We welcome anyone who shares our values and has the skills we need to make the difference that we want to make. 

At Department for Education we aim to set an example as an equal opportunities employer. A diverse and representative workforce enables us to deliver our business objectives.

Working With Us

We recognise that many people have responsibilities outside of work, and so promote and support the use of a range of flexible working patterns to enable staff to balance home and work responsibilities. Whether you want to work part time or need to come into the office a little later on certain days so you can do the school run, we are a very flexible employer, and more importantly, we treat people fairly irrespective of their working arrangements.

As committed to the education of the country’s children and young adults, we are equally committed to the development of our own. Our Department focuses on helping each individual reach their potential, and offers many different opportunities from apprenticeships and talent schemes to mentoring and coaching.
