Companies House opens its doors for digital recruitment sessions
We held 2 digital open days last week. We showcased our digital transformation, our brilliant culture, and the innovative ways in which we work.
Companies House has begun a transformation programme which will change the way we work and the way we offer services to our customers. Digital services will play an essential role in this transformation.
To promote Companies House as a digital employer, we held 2 open days to talk about upcoming roles in our digital teams. It was also an opportunity to show how we work and the projects that we’re currently working on.
Over 300 people registered to attend the sessions at our office in Cardiff. The sessions aimed to attract people already working in digital areas, as well as those looking for a new challenge or change in career. Colleagues from our digital teams were on hand to discuss their roles and the use of agile principles and scrum methodology to deliver our services.
There were also talks from our executive team about our vision for the future. They spoke about how our digital teams focus on meeting customer needs, and how this translates into a collaborative and open culture where we challenge ourselves to deliver the best services we can.
As well as learning more about the work that we do, it was a great opportunity for people to see what it’s like to work at Companies House. Attendees were able to find out more about workplace benefits like mobile and flexible working, and our subsidised gym and canteen. They were also taken on tours of the building to see the working environment and facilities for themselves.
Reflecting on the event, Ross Maude, Director of Digital, said:
The digital open days were an opportunity for people to get a better understanding of the fantastic work happening here at Companies House. I was really impressed with the talented people who came, reflecting the deep pool of talent that we have across the UK.
It was also an opportunity to see the brilliant people we have working here representing everything our cultural change is aspiring to achieve. I’m confident that people went away from the event with a better sense of the amazing things we’re doing here at Companies House and, just as importantly, what a brilliant place this is to work.
We’ll be advertising vacancies in our digital teams over the next few months. These will include roles in product management, user research, interaction design, software development, testing, architecture, DevOps and infrastructure.
If you’d like to find out more about upcoming digital opportunities, you can search for jobs at Companies House on the Civil Service Jobs website. If you have the skills and experience we’re looking for, we want you to be part of our ambitious programme of change.
