I have been working at Cabinet Office full-time
Good current technology, opportunities to work at the heart of Government, very close to ministers/senior officials.
Current bonus is the exciting political context of Brexit and General Election.
Lots of very smart and dynamic colleagues keen to make an impact.
Pay is lower than some parts of Government and it can be unfair when someone transfers in from a higher paying department (e.g. HMRC) to do the same job as a CO employee.
I applied online. I interviewed at Cabinet Office (City of Westminster, England) in August 2017.
The hiring process was fair and simple. The application required 4 core competencies, from the civil service competency framework. However it took 3 months before being contacted for interview, I applied in June and later received an email inviting me for interview in mid August. The interview process was excellent, I waited for a while after my scheduled time. I was escorted by a beautiful young HR staff who took me to the room, she was really approachable and spoke with me whilst making my way to the room. I was welcomed by a mix of 3 bright young people, of various backgrounds and genders, which was really exciting.
