Public Digital is a very special place to work.

As both an employer and as a community of practice, we create an environment in which everyone can do the work of their lives.

At the same time, our culture isn't set in stone. Every person who joins us helps to shape Public Digital in their own unique way. We encourage and celebrate diversity, making space to learn from each other and all the people we meet during our work.

We share a deep commitment to public purpose and the impact of our work. We know that together, we can benefit people around the world.

What's it like to work at PD?

  • Open

    We work in the open. That means showing colleagues the work you are doing as you’re doing it, and talking openly about mistakes, changes and things you’ve learned. It’s good for governance and powerful for building trust.

  • Honest

    You will get candid and clear feedback from colleagues, and you will be empowered to share your feedback with others - regardless of role or hierarchy. That means you know what is going well and what can go better, helping us all improve.

  • Flexible

    We emphasise the delivery of good work: how you structure your day to do that is largely up to you. We typically work standard office hours, but give everyone the room to take care of life’s admin tasks.

  • Supportive

    You’ll never feel alone at PD. You will have a career coach, a mentor and a buddy to help you thrive, with a calendar of weekly all-hands calls, twice-yearly gatherings, regular socials, and informal groups and peer networks.
