Be part of our mission to shape the UK’s future and you’ll help to benefit people for generations to come. At the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, we’re tackling climate change, creating jobs across the UK, encouraging investment, innovation and more.

Helping to spearhead Britain’s recovery following the pandemic, there’s almost no end to the impact of the work you’ll do.

Who we are

More about us

With our collective mission of Leading Britain’s Recovery, fighting the coronavirus is just one of the challenges you could be working on. You might also be involved in helping us become a net zero nation by 2050. Or delivering 40 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030. Alternatively, you could be supporting business, job creation or strengthening employee rights.

Promoting investment in our technology industries is just as important to the UK’s recovery. That’s why we’re doing everything we can to turn the country into a true science superpower. It could be research for AI, space exploration, clean energy, or any number of innovations. And here in Darlington, it will be all made possible by you.

This means you can look forward to working in a friendly, open and supportive culture. One where we encourage each other to be bold. Be innovative. And be passionate about our collective impact.
