Think beyond your perceptions.

Responsible for the UK’s economy and finances, our remit touches every part of life in the country. Meaning the work you’ll be involved in here affects the whole of British society, for years to come.

Seeing as our work makes daily headlines in Westminster, you might think we’re solely based in London. Or that only existing civil servants and ministers can work here. Actually, it’s quite the opposite. Especially now we’re here in the North East.

The truth is you needn’t be an economist, policy-maker or have any government experience to join us. We look for people from all kinds of backgrounds, with all kinds of transferable skills. After all, if we’re to serve the needs of every community, we need people who best reflect and understand them.

That’s what our new roles at Darlington Economic Campus are all about. They’ll put you in the heart of government, in the heart of the North East.
