WHO WE ARE
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) is the central government department that works to secure a healthy environment in which we and future generations can prosper.
MORE ABOUT US
The environment is the natural foundation on which our society and economy are built. Our long-term prosperity, economic success and quality of life are enhanced by our environment. If we use and manage our natural assets in a sustainable way, they will continue to meet not only our needs, such as for energy, sustenance, minerals, fresh water, clean air and fertile soils, but also the needs of future generations.
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR
All government departments are facing a challenging period of reduced recruitment. Exceptions will be made for our graduate recruitment programme and individual ‘business critical’ and ‘key frontline’ posts which get top-level sign-off. Defra employs experts in their field who are passionate about the environment. We’re looking for people from a broad range of professional backgrounds who can make a real difference to the organisation and who are representative of the communities we serve.
