The financial support for rent deposits or a bike to cycle to work, the pension plan is great as are the on site facilities such as the gym which run regular classes, and the on site nursery for parents, Flexi time is also really helpful to have more control over you work life balance
Employer contribution is 20%. Benefits package doesn't exist - this is the Civil Service, you know.
Best thing is Flexi time working, so you can build up 3 days per month. However they have no official remote working policy, which is a shame as it could massively benefit the workforce.
Job security is good once you have passed the probationary period. Pressure of work targets can be daunting, but really that just depends on which office you find yourself in.
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.
