Being engaged in work that makes a positive difference in people's lives, the Exeter HQ site is amazing, and the breadth of opportunities in a huge range of disciplines makes for a diverse way of... thinking.

Some legacy traces of old civil service ways of hierarchical thinking still remain .

Advice to Management

Consider whether all the different careers have clear progression opportunities.
