the changing civil service

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Civil Service United Kingdom

Prosjob security was always one but job cuts and redeployment not suited to employee now rule the day . service now looks to cost cut everywhere but where it should really be made.

Conslack of real inclusion especially if siting in provincial (non head office type )offices. Civil service often for politicla reasons has various sites. If you are not on the site where cheif mandarins sit (ie london) you do not matter. Do not get cream or important "contracts" and consequently non of the recognition

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to be more inclusive and less nepotistic with only opportunities for favoured staff arising as they by postion they are able to show they have carreer progression potential

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
