    Interview

    After successfully completing the interview process, I was delighted to hear I was on a waiting list for new opportunities.

    As this would have been an ideal role for me I followed up weekly then monthly, just to see where I was on the “reserve list”
    Was most disappointed to be advised they could not sure my “position” on the list.
    I secured I role elsewhere but found the process extremely frustrating- given the role I was hoping to secure was about placing people in new jobs there was a distinct lack of support

"I joined DWP four years ago, which was the best thing I could have done for my career progression. Prior to my move to the Civil Service, I worked for a couple of private firms where there was limited scope for development. Despite an initial decrease in salary, I was promoted nine months later thanks to the continuous support I received in achieving my goals. The DWP is a safe, secure and inclusive place to work where the possibilities are endless." Megan Renzulli UC Full Service Team Leader
