Further Information
If you’re interested in making a difference to people’s lives, the Treasury can offer you an exciting opportunity to influence decision making that affects the whole of the UK. Working at the heart of government, we collaborate across government to promote responsible public spending and drive strong and sustainable economic growth!

About the Team
The Government Debt Management Function (GDMF) was established in 2017 to provide functional leadership at the centre of government, with the right technical expertise. We are a small team of 15, who support c8000 people that work on debt management across the central government. We engage across 23 Ministerial departments and their ALBs and are extending our reach to support local authorities.
Our vision is to build Fair Debt Outcomes for All. This ensures fairness to taxpayers and those that do pay on time, by taking a proportionate response to those that do not.

The Function builds and delivers products, services and policies that focus on getting people out of debt, not debt out of people.
The Vision of the GDMF’s Capability Team is to ensure Debt Management Professionals across government are supported in developing their specialist knowledge, and that every Civil Servant has access to the Debt Management knowledge they need to do their jobs effectively.

  • Draft detailed design documents, including measurable and business-focused learning objectives, appropriate content, and evaluation interventions. Conducting in-depth research, where required and working with technical experts where appropriate.
  • Support planning, risk management (including scoping and handling mitigation) and reporting requirements for learning design and development.
  • Design and deliver learning in-house and lead commercial aspects such as outsourcing to third parties and collaborating with trade bodies.
  • Liaise with colleagues on skills assessment tools, career frameworks, and professional standards.

We welcome applications from candidates who have not previously worked for the Civil Service, mid- and late-career changers with transferrable skills, people from all backgrounds and circumstances regardless of disability, ethnicity, LGBT+ identity and socio-economic status.
