Featured Review

Current Employee - Administrative Officer

I have been working at Civil Service United Kingdom full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

It’s difficult to find good managers, but having been in several departments I can say there are plenty here. Willing to support with progression in career. Good flexi time.

Cons

Pay is better in private sector, and not always equal across civil service.

Advice to Management

Stay positive.

Former Contractor - Solicitor

I worked at Government of the United Kingdom for less than a year

Pros

Lovely people who care about their work.

Cons

The environment could be a bit staid and dull at times.
