Digital identity products enable users to prove who they are online, in a safe and trusted way. Over 8 million people have relied upon GOV.UK Verify to access government services digitally. Building on these experiences, GDS is now working closely with a wide range of other departments to develop and pilot a new cross-government solution that will make it easier to find and use public services, whilst continuing to protect privacy. Our vision is for citizens to be able to use one login for all such services, without needing to re-enter information multiple times.
This is a high-profile programme that aims to transform the way people interact with government, and is a central pillar of GDS’s 3-year strategy. We are therefore recruiting and growing a first-class team that is representative of, and motivated to make a real difference for, users and departments.
