WHO WE ARE
Supported by 46 agencies and public bodies, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is a ministerial department for economic growth, consumer protection and reducing the impact of regulation.
MORE ABOUT US
BIS invests in promoting trade, boosting innovation and helping people to start and grow a business. It protects consumers, reduces the impact of regulation, and helps to develop the UK’s science and research industry. BIS plays an important role in helping UK businesses increase productivity and compete worldwide, creating economic growth and prosperity. BIS works with further and higher education providers to give students the skills to compete in a global employment market. To achieve this we must nurture, develop and value our staff’s diverse talents and perspectives.
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR
All our jobs are advertised on the civil service jobs website. We believe that a commitment to equality and diversity is critical to ensuring that we can deliver BIS’ priorities, as well as the government’s wider goals. Every member of BIS staff has been selected because they have the skills, experience, attitude and values to collectively give us the best chance of success. We need to ensure that everyone can develop and use their talents, share their views and feel valued for their contributions, regardless of their sexual orientation.
