More than just a job
How many people can say their work impacts millions of people every day? Not many, right?
A digital role at the Department of Customer Service (DCS) means you’ll wake up every morning knowing you're make a difference, a difference to the lives of everyone living in NSW – all 8 million+ of us.
At DCS we’re out to make the NSW Government the most customer-centric, digital government in the world.
We are a leading central service agency, made up of over 30 agencies, entities and business units, including Service NSW, Digital.NSW, Revenue NSW, and the State Insurance Regulatory Authority, which makes our work incredibly diverse.
We work with the latest tech on pioneering digital projects that make an impact. Think award-winning projects like bushfire relief, the Active Kids program, and Digital Driver Licence – that’s our work - innovative digital services that make life easier.
More than perks, this is what we promise
Our people come first. We look after you, so you can help us look after the people of NSW.
The way of the future
We’re not your traditional government agency – we will empower you to source the latest contemporary technologies and tools - React, Apigee, Figma, and Kubernetes – you won’t be restricted by monolith code here!
Work in an agile environment with a chapter and multi-discipline squad structure. We are nimble, lean and agile, and you will get opportunities for rotation to experience different products and projects to build your skills and experience.
It’s not just the tools we use though, it’s also the mindsets and frameworks we adopt from human-centred design to simplifying UX to pair programming and test-driven development.
What our people say
"DCS give importance to architecture and information security, following best practices, implementing latest industry standards, with scope for innovations that deliver positive impact to thousands of customers."
- Ganesh Gowthaman, Technical Architect, Licensing Program, Digital.NSW
"The culture, especially the flexible work style, has given me good work/life balance and encourages me to give my best. Since day one at DCS I have been supported, trusted to take initiatives and I am appreciated, even for the smallest effort."
- Deepak Babu, Senior Product Engineer, Licensing Program, Government Technology Platforms, Digital.NSW and ICT
Flexibility that works for you
We know flexibility looks different to everyone, and a digital role within DCS will let you work in a way that works for you.
We champion remote and hybrid working, and have state-of-the-art offices in Parramatta and Central Sydney, plus a network of regional offices across the state, meaning you can live and work from a variety of locations.
The opportunity for compressed hours and generous leave conditions including up to 16 weeks parental leave, 20 days recreation and 15 days sick/carers leave, plus community and study leave, mean you can make time for what really counts.
Flexibility is not a buzzword for us – we live and breathe it every day!
