Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities

Job summary

Here at the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC), we work on things that make a real difference to people’s lives.

Whether it’s through the homes we live in, the work of our local councils, or the communities we’re all part of, our work is at the top of the political agenda. We have ambitious and far-reaching outcomes to achieve this year and, if you’re thinking of joining us, there’s never been a more exciting time.

We have over 3,500 staff who are based in 20 offices across the UK.

As part of the Local Government, Resilience and Communities (LGRC) group, the Communities and Integration (C&I) Directorate sits at the heart of the Government’s aim to level up opportunities for everyone. Our efforts are at the heart of DLUHC’s goal to establish socially and economically stronger communities. Our work is already helping to bring communities together around the shared values and close connections which unite us, while tackling extremists and other hostile actors who seek to sow division amongst our communities and places.

You will be joining a friendly, inclusive and hard-working team to build a new cross-government service to deliver the new engagement principles (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/community-engagement-principles/governments-principles-of-engagement), – to guide the Government’s approach to external engagement, ensuring that this does not include those groups and individuals that actively work against the Government’s objectives and principles on extremism by inadvertently giving them support, influence and credibility. This work also encompasses the development of best-practice guidance and training to ensure that community engagement is as meaningful and purposeful as possible.

We particularly welcome candidates from an ethnic minority background and other underrepresented groups to apply, as we work to continually improve our ability to represent the places and communities we support through our work.
