Our recruitment ethos
Our values are what shape our perspective on recruitment at FutureGov. Being untraditionally professional means shifting away from traditional recruitment methods. We’re in this with you, which is why our tailored method for seeking and nurturing top talent is as individual as you are.
We’re ambitious in the change we’re seeking and that starts with you.
What makes us positively different?
We have an incredible opportunity to create real change for communities and citizens. Better outcomes and lasting impact are at the core of our vision for 21st-century services.
The health and wellbeing of our team is always important, which is why we offer flexible working opportunities. Life doesn’t always follow the nine-to-five routine and neither do we.
We’re always learning, growing and building together. Because of that, we include everyone in our collective development by hosting weekly communities of practice and lunch-and-learns.
A holiday gives you a chance to recharge your batteries, so we offer our staff 25 days in addition to public holidays - but please bring us back a souvenir.
Team breakfasts, a snack cupboard and team trips are built into the foundation of life at FutureGov. But we know that it’s so much more than that. We’re a close-knit bunch, with daily collaboration, a supportive environment and a passion for empowerment.
We’re untraditionally professional. Working with us will feel different. Your progression is in your hands and we’ll give you every tool to help you achieve your goals. We’re here to offer you support.

Meet some FutureGovers
Few organisations have a project portfolio that is quite as diverse. At any time, you could be working on an international UN project or with a local council, and everything in between. We’re often working with clients on a digital transformation journey, meaning our projects have a strategic profile and visibility. I feel insanely lucky to work alongside such a curious, bright and passionate bunch of people. It’s a very special place.
Jen Project director lead
We have a chance to approach interesting projects in different ways. No project is the same, and so, we’re constantly evolving and improving the way we do things and that is super rewarding. You get to constantly apply different thinking, knowledge and techniques to the work that you do.
Will Lead delivery manager
The reason I love working at FutureGov? It’s the people and the work, it’s all about the people and the work. We’re a motley crew of extremely passionate people who care about making an impact. But equally, it’s the work we do. It’s meaningful work, and it’s hard but every day you're making a change in real people's lives, and that’s something not many companies can offer.
Elle Product design lead
There are so many opportunities to constantly learn and develop at FutureGov! From sharing project learnings at team meetings, strengthening our craft at Service Design meetups, and seeking inspiration from the outside world at Community of Practice. There’s always something new to explore and grow from. Not forgetting the people - everyone is so generous with their time and always up for grabbing a coffee and sharing best practice.
Sehel Service designer
To be able to do work that helps real people and have a positive impact is both rewarding and challenging. I have grown and learned so much as a designer and it’s unlike other places in the way you have the autonomy to try new things and can contribute and shape the design practice within the company. Everyone has so much passion for their craft and are so supportive, that makes a big difference in making it a great place to work.
