Working for the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Our collective mission is Leading Britain’s Recovery and this underpins our objectives as we move forward to tackle the challenges that lie ahead.

Leading Britain's recovery

At BEIS you can help shape the UK’s future, making contributions that will benefit people for years to come.

From fighting coronavirus to tackling climate change, our priorities reach far and wide across the country and into the homes of many. We are here to back businesses and unleash innovation in the varied and exciting sector that the UK has to offer.


At BEIS we are friendly, open and supportive. We encourage each other to be bold and innovative and are passionate about what we do. We want to nurture a diverse and inclusive environment where we value our people and the people we serve, whoever they are, wherever they are, and whatever they do.

BEIS  is playing a leading role in levelling up every region in the UK. Our department's second HQ is in Salford and by 2025, 30% of our workforce will be based outside of London. We are particularly focused on growing our presence in Salford, Birmingham, Cardiff and Darlington with a variety of role types, grades and professions.

I wanted to join BEIS to get involved in the important work affecting businesses, as someone with previous experience of part owning one. I've loved the opportunity to learn on the job and have completed an apprenticeship; the support from my colleagues to succeed has been amazing.
