UKGI is committed to bringing together and developing the best talent from both the Civil Service and the private sector.
UKGI provides staff with the opportunity to work on a variety of diverse projects across its broad business portfolio, and access a range of learning and development opportunities. Depending on the size of the project and the nature of the role, employees can expect to work on a number of workstreams simultaneously. Whatever their background and experience, everyone will be given the opportunity to improve their skills and develop their career during their time at UKGI.
UKGI is continually on the lookout for top candidates from both public and private sector backgrounds because, in a fast-moving environment where new projects are regularly identified and new priorities set, posts sometimes need to be filled at short notice.
