Working in BEIS Digital

We are BEIS Digital, part of the corporate services of BEIS, and our vision is to use the best of Digital, data, technology, and associated approaches to transform the way in which we deliver services and work with businesses, citizens, partners and our employees.

About BEIS Digital

Delivering great services is not about implementing technology because it’s available, we want to improve the experience of those that interact with us from employees to business and citizens and we’ll do that through a relentless focus on service design, being responsive and adapting to the contexts in which we operate. We will deliver our strategy and vision by applying our guiding principles to our 4 strategic priorities

1. People

People are at the heart of what we do and to deliver the exceptional services we strive for we will need to invest in the development of the digital team but also bring our colleagues with us, sharing our knowledge and experience to help raise digital awareness and capability across the organisation

3. Delivery

We will maximise our delivery capability through strong business partnering to understand user needs with outcomes assured against standards and delivered using the best approach for the context of the problem we are trying to solve. Our core service will be to advise, source and delivery using an in-house delivery model supported by a strong supplier ecosystem.

4. Data

We want to make the right data available at the right time for all our stakeholders, improving the quality of the data available, enabling better analysis and decision-making, and enabling UK consumers to maximise the benefits of accessing our data by adopting an open by default approach.​​

Data and its use bring enormous opportunity and we must ensure we maximise that opportunity by focussing on quality and ease of access.

Our focus is on data driven delivery

We will embed data in our own decision making and service design through user research, workplace analytics, service data and a range of other sources. ​

We will use this data to ensure we are delivering the right services but also to identify areas of commonality across projects to develop shared data structures and enterprise services. ​
