Dstl (Defence Science and Technology Laboratory), is an integral part of the Ministry of Defence (MoD) as its trusted adviser on science and technology. We offer high-integrity and impartial advice on defence-related science and technology issues to the MoD and wider government. Employing the largest number of scientists and engineers in public service, we provide the technical and analytical support that allows our armed forces to operate at a sustained high level of competence.
An organisation with Investors in People accreditation, Dstl is committed to building on a graduate's knowledge with a structured development programme, a Chartership Scheme to help gain membership of an appropriate professional body, and a 'buddy' to offer advice and guidance.
Employees are Civil Servants. Starting salaries are designed to attract the most creative minds, while a comprehensive range of benefits includes a salary related pension scheme, 22 days holiday plus bank holidays, flexible working hours, childcare vouchers, and sports, social and recreational activities.
