Working together for a better Wales

Working together for a better Wales

Why the Welsh Government?

Here at the Welsh Government we are working to help improve the lives of our citizens. Our aim is to help the First Minister and Welsh Ministers to build a fairer, more equal and greener Wales.  A prosperous, healthy, ambitious and united Wales for our citizens today and the future generations of tomorrow. 

With around 5000 staff based across our nation, we’re getting closer to the communities we serve.

As a member of our team, you will have access to:

  • a highly competitive salary and benefits package
  • 31 days annual leave (full-time and pro-rata for part-time)
  • 10 privilege/public holidays (full-time and pro-rata for part-time)
  • a generous Learning & Development offer
  • flexible & home working arrangements

Who can apply?

As we continue to prepare for a life outside the European Union, meet the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic and deliver the government’s priorities ahead of the next Welsh election in May 2021, we have a significant number of priority roles that need to be filled requiring a broad range of skills and abilities.

These roles will be in areas such as policy development and delivery, project management and operational delivery.

There may also be roles supporting a range of professions across Welsh Government, such as the Digital (DDaT), Legal Services or Communications profession.

Supporting everyone to succeed

We pride ourselves as being an employer of choice, an organisation in which people want to work and are proud to work. For this reason, we have put the principles of human rights, equality, fairness, dignity and respect at the heart of our values.

We welcome applications from individuals regardless of age, marriage (including equal/same sex marriage) and civil partnership, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, disability, race, religion or belief or pregnancy/maternity.

We are committed to recruiting Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people and disabled people who are currently under-represented in the Welsh Government.

Our staff diversity networks support underrepresented groups within the Welsh Government.
