Salary and pension are generally quite good. Bonus package is quite poor, very few financial incentives in place.

Great benefits including very generous pensions and parental leave entitlements. Opportunities to move up through your career in 1000s roles across government.

There were no rewards and the holiday was the standard 28 days per year. The pension scheme was automatic but I left due to finding a more beneficial one.
