I’m Benjamin Gill,1 a developer working for you2 and employed by the Government Digital Service. I’m working on GOV.UK Verify, a way to securely access government services online.

I am also an amateur theatrical technician, avid board gamer, omnivorous reader, and really quite fond of opera.

My preferred pronouns are he/him.

I maintain a public salary history.


I can be contacted at <anything>@bjgill.net. My GPG key has ID A597F067 and fingerprint F45F B6FF 33DF DE3A 820D 7BB0 B8D9 0097 A597 F067.

I recently switched to bjgill.net from bgill.eu, which I will lose as a result of Brexit. Please change over my entry in your address book if you have not already done so. I may lose access to bgill.eu at very short notice.

  1. I prefer ‘Benjamin’, not ‘Ben’ [return]
  2. Though technically the Crown [return]
