What opportunities are there?
How can I progress where I am?
What else is out there that would suit my skills?
At DVLA, we aim to make sure that staff have access to the resources in order to answer these questions.
We believe in giving staff clarity of what is expected of them in their role, highlighting the skills needed for today, as well as those required to progress within a chosen field. Providing our staff with Career Frameworks, enables them to sustain higher levels of personal achievement, giving individuals and their managers the tools to have effective development conversations.
In our digital department, we have been working to build on existing Government career frameworks, tailoring them to the needs and objectives of colleagues. These frameworks are housed on our internal SharePoint site and contain the skills and behaviours required to both excel in a role and progress.
You can find the high-level digital Career Frameworks on the individual career pages. You’ll see a list of skills and job roles, along with the required levels of mastery expected in the Digital Data and Technology Profession Capability Framework.
