Tom Read, Chief Executive Officer of the Government Digital Service, sits down with us to chat about his first few months and what’s next for GDS.
The GDS Team
Tom Read, Chief Executive Officer and the GDS Team share their strategy for 2021-2024.
To celebrate Earth Day 2021, we spoke to people working in different digital roles in government about how product teams can contribute to greening delivery.
This month we hear from colleagues in the GOV.UK Platform as a Service team, and from some teams across government who are using the service.
This month we hear from some of the teams behind the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable People Service - a critical part of the cross-government coronavirus response.
We share how we worked with other government departments to assure and support their bids to the Treasury for the Spending Review, and how this helped the Treasury in tackling vital technology issues.
The final episode of the Government Digital Service Podcast in 2020 takes a look back at what happened over the past 12 months at GDS.
GDS turns 9 this year, and colleagues across the organisation are marking the occasion by sharing their memories since joining, and what they are doing at GDS now.
This month’s episode of the GDS Podcast is all about GOV.UK Pay, the government’s payment service. Listen to the GOV.UK Pay Team talk about how the product works, and also hear from users across the public sector.
The UK celebrates Black History Month in October. Throughout the month, the Government Digital Service has been hosting events and activities centred on the theme of “Black Excellence”. On our latest podcast, we discuss Black excellence in tech with colleagues and other public servants about careers, advice for young Black people interested in working in tech, and actions for allies to implement.
