About House of Commons

About us

Working at the House of Commons is a unique experience. There is a broad range of interesting, sometimes unexpected, jobs held by people from a wide variety of backgrounds. We're also a friendly and supportive employer, committed to diversity and inclusion, and learning and development. We are positive about work/life balance.

And you don't just have to take it from us. In last year's staff survey, 85% of respondents said that they would recommend the House of Commons as a good place to work, whether they have been working here for some time or have recently joined us.

Diversity and inclusion

The House of Commons passes laws relating to equality, diversity and inclusion. We believe that we should lead the way in implementing these laws, including in our recruitment and selection.
We are committed to making the House an inclusive and accessible place and to attracting people who may not have considered working here before. We want the people who work here to reflect society as a whole. We work hard to embed diversity in the way we treat our staff, customers and suppliers. 

Learning and development

The House of Commons is committed to the development of every member of staff. We want to help them perform their roles to a high standard, develop broader skills and knowledge as well as supporting longer term career planning.  You can access our Learning Management System even before you start work so you know what to expect. We also run a wide range of one-off training events and have been accredited by Investors in People (IiP) since 2003. 


Our approach to learning is supported by our appraisal process, which has a strong focus on identifying development opportunities and by our bespoke competency framework. We are committed to offering learning and development opportunities both to those who stay with us for their whole careers and to those who are with us for a short time.
