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, 74% 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.

The House of Commons is committed to being an inclusive employer. At the House of Commons we aim to provide a positive, inclusive working environment where people are valued for the skills and experience that they bring to work. Our aim is to be representative of the society we serve. This means making parliament more accessible, diverse and free from discrimination. All staff deserve, and should expect, to be treated with respect for who they are and what they do. This treatment should be consistent and inclusive. Inclusivity means not excluding people on the grounds of their age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, and pregnancy and maternity, or any other irrelevant attribute.

We are a high-performing, professional and diverse organisation, with staff from a range of backgrounds working in a wide variety of different roles.
