Careers at Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) is the department of the future.

We are responsible for fast growing, forward-looking, strategically important parts of the economy, sectors which make up 14% of GDP, 17% of trade and 25% of UK businesses. Our work protects and promotes local civil society and our cultural and artistic heritage; we are caretakers of many things GDP cannot measure that are nonetheless of enormous social value.

Our great opportunity is to help bring these worlds together. The nexus where digital innovation and creative ability collide will be the heart of the future economy. Our society is defined by local communities; places immeasurably strengthened by civil society, civic institutions and the people, young and old, who contribute to their wellbeing. Britain’s future will be built on a thriving economy and confident society; a solid foundation from which to make bold ventures. DCMS is ideally placed to make this happen.

Our objectives:

• Global: Drive international trade, attract investment and promote shared values around the world – promoting the UK as a great place to live, work and visit

• Growth: Grow an economy that is creative, innovative and works for everyone

• Digital Connectivity: Continually drive the UK’s connectivity, telecommunications and digital sectors

• Participation: Maximise social action, and participation in culture, sport and physical activity

• Society: Make our society safe, fair and informed, online and offline

• Agile & Efficient: Ensure DCMS is fit for the future with the right skills, culture and connections
