All staff employed by the Government Digital Service (GDS) have a mixture of both technical and digital skills. Around 66% of GDS staff are male. The Government is committed to increasing the number of girls and young women studying STEM subjects at schools and university, and wants to ensure that we attract more of the very best people into jobs in technical and digital fields.

The civil service recruits and retains staff on merit.
