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. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cabinet Office (City of Westminster, England) in May 2017.
Interview on may 4th 2017 with Kieth Turnbull really nice guy made me at ease. I think it was supposed to be 3 people interviewing me as when heading to the interview room he asked two people to join but only one showed up. I had no idea what I would be asked, job description did not say nor anything found online so you can imagine how I felt. I assumed it would be in the competency questions asked in job app like previous jobs I had applied to, however this was not the case. Questions were more technical. I wasn't asked for passport documents etc even though message said to bring it. Interview was hard but Keith tried his best to help me which made it easier and didn't feel the pressure as I would if he hadn't. Great guy. There were other questions which were hard but can't remember. No offer yet, awaiting to hear from him.
