Join our team

The PUBLIC team is made up of passionate, mission-driven individuals, with diverse skills and experiences. We come together around shared values and our commitment to reimagine and build digitally-enabled public services.

Our mission

We help public sector bodies transform the services they offer in order to create a better society for everyone.

We strongly believe that public service can be pursued both inside and outside of government.  

Our Values

These are the qualities we seek out when we hire, the behaviours that bind us together, and the qualities we strive to reflect in the way we work.

Work with Purpose

PUBLIC helps product and policy teams integrate emerging technologies within new service models to deliver truly modern digital transformation.

Shoot for Mars

We look for new ideas and approaches and aim big. We don’t let problems get in the way of solutions.

Get it done, Smarter

We deliver while learning lessons and anticipating challenges. We are fast, smart and patient.

All Together

We make room for our colleagues and foster a genuine culture of support and interest that is felt far beyond our four walls.

How we hire

We place an emphasis the varied experiences, backgrounds and skills candidates bring to the table. To remove the biases that cloud judgment, most of our recruitment campaigns are candidate-blind.

We seek to recruit dynamic, creative colleagues who are passionate about our mission and fit into our ethos.

We only care about whether you can do the job and if you will make a collaborative colleague.

We place an emphasis on ensuring consistency and fairness in assessment of candidates.

How we consider candidates

  • 1

    Initial assessment

    For junior and mid-level roles, we blind review your application, to minimise unconscious biases and give you the opportunity to be judged only on your full potential rather than your experience.

  • 2

    Competency interview

    The hiring team will ask questions to explore the skills that are needed for the job. We aim to ask candidates the same questions across the board to allow us to make a fair comparison.

  • 3

    Values interview

    You’ll meet some wider PUBLIC team members, who will ask questions relating to our company values. Focusing on values, rather than culture, allows us to broaden our horizons and remain a mission-driven organisation whilst hiring a diverse team.

Why join us

Mission driven

Join a team that is motivated by mission, to work on projects that will improve the way the world works.

Dream team

You’ll be working amongst the smartest, most talented teams any of us have ever known.

Positive Culture

Be part of collaborative, supportive company culture.

Growth opportunities

Build your skills on the job and through dedicated training as part of a growing team.

Competitive salary & benefits

We offer competitive salaries and a comprehensive benefits package, including an EMI option scheme.

Flexible working

Flex your hours or your location to make working with PUBLIC work for you.

Diversity Plan

PUBLIC wholeheartedly believes that having a diverse team is critical to our strength and ability to innovate. We also recognise that moving the needle on diversity requires constant, consistent effort and focus across the team.

We understand that building an inclusive experience requires an understanding of the full spectrum of diversity, and we hope that with each step we will move closer to making PUBLIC a place where diverse communities are represented, supported, respected and heard.

A team that reflects the world around us

building a team that brings different experiences, perspectives and diversities is one of our key priorities as we grow.

Inclusive culture

an environment where we can all bring our whole selves to work, and where we feel comfortable having an open conversation about our diversities, both visible and invisible.

Community groups

supporting diversity through team-led groups such as LGBTQ+, Women at PUBLIC and Parents & Carers.

Diverse candidates

continued focus on representation of underrepresented groups at senior levels and collaboration with organisations such as 10,000 Black Interns and the Taylor Bennett Foundation at the junior level.
