    I have been working at Cabinet Office full-time

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cabinet Office (City of Westminster, England) in August 2017.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked the 4 core competencies in my application. Along with follow up questions, such as reflecting on your answer, what would you do different and why? this was a question that will challenge you. They asked me at the end, to tell them a bit about myself, which was not assessed.   1 Answer
