Current Employee - Recruitment Project Team

I have been working at Department for Work And Pensions full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

DWP offers the opportunity to work in many different professional areas, with varied locations across the country. The organisation is one of the biggest government Departments and is constantly... evolving so there are new and exciting projects to get involved with, different job roles available and the opportunity to contribute to change the way we work . In addition to this, the Department is family friendly and inclusive with many employees able to work part time, term time, compressed hours or make use of flexible working in their jobs and managers are always keen to support learning and the development of new skills.

Cons

No cons from my point of view.

Advice to Management

In my experience managers have always been supportive and keen to enable my professional development, it's a real strength of the organisation as it helps people develop new skills and knowledge... which is filtered back into the Department. Please keep on supporting and developing your people, it's a win, win.
