    Great people, some frustrating bureaucracy

    Former Employee - Senior Press Officer in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Department of Health UK full-time (more than 5 years)


    The teams working in the Department's core business - policy, private office/press office are passionate about improving the nation's health. Everyone appreciates the pressure people in other parts of the organisation are sometimes under and helps as best as they can.


    Sometimes bureaucracy gets in the way, either from centralised policy (for example procurement or recruitment practices), or DH's interpretation of that policy.

    Like all other government departments, there is little scope for pay increase. Some of the other benefits (pension, generous annual leave allowance) do make up for this, and there are some small (less than £1k pa) one-off bonuses available to recognise exceptional work (these are very limited - c.10% or less of the workforce and most of them being around the £500 mark).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a bit more flexible when it comes to interpreting HR and finance policies from the Centre. The policies are there for a reason, but there are always going to be some exceptions and it would be great if cases could be judged on their merits.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
