Security Checks

Successful candidates will be required to pass our security vetting check to at least Counter Terrorist Check (CTC) level or higher such as Security Clearance (SC) or Developed Vetting (DV). To undergo our security checks, you must have resided in the UK for a minimum of 3 years out of the last 5 years.

Please refer to the advert to check the security clearance level required for the post you are applying for. For further information about what these checks entail, please refer to our National Security Vetting booklet.


Under the Asylum and Immigration Act (1971), you must have the right to work in the UK when you apply. To check your right to work, please visit Gov.UK's Prove Right to Work. Please note, we are unable to provide sponsorship if one is required as we do not hold a sponsorship license.

Internal Roles

Any roles that are advertised on the Internal Opportunities jobs board but not on the External Opportunities page are open to Parliamentary Digital Service, House of Commons and House of Lords employees only who have been recruited through fair and open competition. If you are not an employee and apply for a vacancy exclusively listed on our internal opportunities page and you have not been recruited through fair and open competition, we will be unable to consider your application.

Our Culture

For our people, we provide an amazing opportunity to bring their talents to an institution that sits right at the heart of society in the UK. The scale of our impact is a true differentiator when it comes to how we position ourselves as an employer – we are changing UK Parliament and strengthening democracy. What matters here is your potential for growth and your commitment to playing your part in our ongoing success.

We’re passionate about providing an environment which promotes equality, diversity and inclusion for all regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage/civil partnership, pregnancy/maternity, race, religion/belief, sex or sexual orientation, or any of the other things that make you, you. We’re proud to be an accredited Disability Confident Leader and welcome applications from people who feel under-represented in the workforce including those who may feel disadvantaged because of their social or economic circumstances.
