By forming a ‘CrossGov Digital Business Partner’ group, a PDS team hopes to build a sustainable support network, share success stories and navigate difficult terrain that comes with the job.
Two members from the PDS User-Centred Design team went to a leading industry event in the user experience field. Here's what they discovered.
Lucy Crouch started in PDS recently and describes what it's like to work in the fast-paced world of social media.
Vanda Ladeira has always loved solving puzzles and moving images. She's written about how she went from studying pharmacy to making films and encouraging filmmakers at Parliament.
Carol Hindley has written about how curiosity led her to speak at a conference about her work for the first time ahead of a PDS cultural values day.
The HR and capability team had never had an away day before so they've written about what they did and what they learned from taking a day away from the office.
Paul Harvey-Douglas studied English and his first job was selling adverts on a local newspaper. He's written about how he went from a cub reporter to a content designer in PDS.
Emily Turner recently spent some time with the content team and she's written about the overlaps between digital content and explaining Parliament to young people.
Jenny Radcliffe is a senior change and communications manager in PDS. She did a film and cultural studies degree so you might be wondering how she ended up doing this job, which is why she's written this blog post.
Franny Gant is a user researcher in PDS but she wasn’t always one. She's done loads of jobs from being a carpenter to working at Mumsnet so she's written about how she got to where she is.
