Data. Work. Projects.
We're looking a service design-focused Data Scientist to work on our Universal Credit team.
You will be responsible for studying user behaviour, strategic initiatives, and new product features to bring data-driven insights and recommendations into every decision we make. Above all, your work will directly impact the way the Universal Credit digital service is designed, developed and delivered.
As the Universal Credit service grows, it will scale to provide services to 7 million claimants. It will be used daily by thousands of DWP employees and third parties at DWP service and job centres across the country. It is big.
DWP is undergoing a major digital transformation programme and data science has a critical role to play; facilitating better design of our services, and making them more personalised to individual circumstances, and making big shifts in our effectiveness and efficiency.
You are a self-starter who is motivated by using impactful and creative applications of data science to deliver to user needs.
You're interested in wider Data Science trends, best practice and emerging technologies. You'll help us be better, actively participating in the wider capability development of Data Science in DWP through code sharing or 'show and tells' (via collaboration tools or presentations).

You'll join us in one of our easy-to-reach digital hubs in either Leeds or Manchester.
