Create a great place to live. Enjoy a great place to work.

Join us in playing a vital role
at the heart of UK life.

With vital and wide-ranging responsibilities we, at Defra, work collaboratively with our partners to protect the environment and to maintain and grow the rural economy. We are, after all, responsible for the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe.

As one of the lead government departments charged with the delivery of a successful UK exit from the EU, we are provided with a once-in-a-generation opportunity to fundamentally transform the work we do and how we deliver it.

Working for Defra you will contribute to the development of new approaches and policies affecting millions of people in the UK. You will also enjoy the opportunity to develop your own skills and career.

Our vision is to create a great place for living. We are also dedicated to being a great place to work.
