Government Digital Service

The Government Digital Service (GDS)

GDS is helping to redefine how a modern government should serve its citizens. Our work is cutting-edge and award-winning. It is improving the lives of millions of people.

We build and run world-class public services for the digital age. We work in small, agile teams of developers, designers and content specialists. Users always come first and everything we do should meet their needs. 

We run government’s online home, GOV.UK, which is visited by 3 million times a day. We’re delivering GOV.UK Verify, a new way to prove who you are online. We’re building platforms to make transformation easier for departments - things like GOV.UK Pay, the government payment service and GOV.UK Notify, which keeps people up to date with the status of their interaction with government. This is just some of what we do.

We work for the whole population. And we can only do that by being an inclusive, diverse organisation. We work hard to maintain an open, positive working culture and we were recently named as one of the Top 100 Best Employers for Race by Business in the Community.
