Our purpose is to provide new and improved services that are reliable, easy to use and offer value for money for our customers. With over 49 million driver records and over 40 million vehicle records, the opportunity to work at this scale is unrivalled across the region. Our services generate billions in revenue and directly impact the lives of 9 out of 10 households in the UK.

Technology and innovation

We use cutting-edge technology, including a modern cloud platform, to deliver best in class services. We continually strive for innovation and our very own Emerging Tech Lab is dedicated to testing new technology and assessing where it can add value to our new and existing services.  

People

People are at the heart of everything we do, and that goes for our employees as well as our customers. We are a collaborative and supportive team, working together to deliver a shared goal. We offer a challenging and fun working environment, with a focus on career development and a healthy work-life balance, ensuring individuals succeed on both a professional and personal level. From Software Engineers to Service Designers, we have a range of exciting roles and career paths to choose from.

Place

Swansea City is famous for its culture, coast, nightlife, sports and much more, but it’s now also becoming increasingly famous for its technology sector and we are at the heart of that, offering meaningful careers and building digital skills in the South Wales region.
