Digital and data roles

We live in a world where digital technology is more important than ever.

At the Office for National Statistics (ONS), we want to make it as easy as possible for people to interact with our data and analysis.

To help us do this, we employ the best people to create, develop and support our innovative digital solutions.

Government Digital and Data at the ONS

From data analysts and software developers to test engineers and network architects, our teams make sure the ONS continues to improve lives through data.

You could be building the surveys that gather and process data or helping to analyse and publish it, so that we can understand what it’s telling us.

You might be providing support at one of our tech bars, making sure everyone has the right equipment and software to do their jobs well. 

You can find out more about our work on the ONS Digital, Data and Technology blog.

“The ONS provides great career growth opportunities, and the technology we use is more advanced than I expected. It’s such a supportive and dynamic work environment.”

Rachel – Senior Agile Delivery Manager

Learning and development in digital and data

At the ONS, you can set time aside to support your own learning and development.

It’s up to you how you use the time. You could complete a qualification or training course, learn a new skill or improve one you already have.

You can also join our Communities of Practice, where people in similar roles share the latest innovations, knowledge and learning opportunities.

One thing that stood out to me was how the ONS is committed to upskilling its employees. You can access support and training right away.”
