The best thing about the perks is the ability to join the Civil Service Sports Council (CSSC). The benefits are actually insane and only £3.90 a month!
Best perk is flexible time keeping. Allows the individual to keep appointments during the working week & fulfil family commitments.
Holiday and work from home
Average salary pension scheme and flexi time. Salary is average for admin jobs and for junior management jobs, not so good for middle management jobs.
Best - Work life balance, flexible working encouraged, family friendly - Pension - Some discount schemes Worst - No incentive scheme or hope of any pay increases related to performance
Basic pay is now much better aligned to the private sector. Although the pension has, understandably, deteriorated over time, it is still a very good pension.
A good range of benefits.
Good rate of pay for newcomers, flexible working, good IT equipment, great colleagues, pension, sick pay, season ticket loan etc.. Less good for longer established workers at the top of their pay grade, no pay increases for a number of years.
You get training for the specific role you are carrying out
The Civil Service differs across departments on what benefits it has. Pension contributions by the employer are above private sector ones.
