At DLUHC, we have committed to becoming an even more outward facing department that reflects the diverse communities we serve. Beyond Whitehall is a Civil Service wide reform programme which will move 22,000 roles out of London over the next decade and, as the department for place DLUHC is leading on this important programme of work. Our new dual headquarters will be based in the i9 building within the historic heart of Wolverhampton City Centre. Over time this move will bring hundreds of jobs and exciting careers in the UK Civil Service to the city and the West Midlands.
A city that’s big on character, Wolverhampton is a vibrant and welcoming city which has plenty to offer. Our location is close to large venues such as the Molineux Stadium, Wulfrun Hall and Wolverhampton Civic Hall, and also hosting some of the oldest and most prestigious schools in the UK with the City of Wolverhampton College rated top in the West Midlands region for both student and staff satisfaction. The city also boasts a good range of independent and high street retailers, with major companies making multi-million-pound investments in the city, Wolverhampton has a bright future ahead.
Our new second HQ will house up to 250 roles over the next couple of years, and in a first for government, it will have a regular and frequent ministerial presence – just like a Whitehall department. If you work in the new second HQ, it will be common to meet with Ministers in the office. We are located a door step away from major public transport links, bus, train and tram, the office is less than 20 minutes from Birmingham and accessible from places across the region. We want to have a workforce that represents the diversity and talent of the entire region, from the great cities to the towns and villages and offer hybrid and flexible working to so that time can be spent working from home and the office – we’re open to your needs.
