Digital, Data and Technology Profession
We’re an organisation that touches the lives of everyone across Scotland, and beyond.
With big ambitions come big opportunities, and the digital profession has some of the most rewarding jobs and careers available today. We’re building new services and redesigning old ones, and we need innovative, curious, and passionate people to keep us moving forward. If you can rethink old approaches, and transform systems and services, there’s a place for you here.
The Digital, Data and Technology Profession (DDaT) profession spans a vast range of roles across government. We currently have over 50 digital, data and technology job roles, organised into career paths within seven job families.Learn more
