    I worked at Department for Work And Pensions as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to see the inner workings of government, and how stories that will eventually make the news headlines are managed inside government. There are also potential secondment opportunities in other government departments, private office, and visits to the houses of parliament if you are able to get in contact with the right people. However, the extent of this is dependent upon your line manager. The placement will also be paid, unlike many other private sector internships.

    Cons

    As this was a placement, the level of responsibility given is quite low. However, this is probably best if this is your first experience in a workplace. Also, unlike in much of the private sector, you will not be offered a job of the back of such an internship, with all potential civil service employees having to go through formal channels, such as the fast stream. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but you need to be aware that such a placement will not necessarily give you a huge advantage in getting a job in the civil service full time. If you have political views, it can also be frustrating being in an environment in which you are expected to maintain neutrality.

    Advice to Management

    Overall management of the placement was very good, and most colleagues were kind and helpful.
