I worked at Cabinet Office full-time
Senior civil servants are everywhere so the exposure you receive is higher than nearly all other departments.
Very anal and by the book in all matters with historically low pay and repetitive working style.
Advice to Management
Raise pay to civil service average and allow much more freedom to do things independently
I submitted a basic CV and went through one interview.
It was fixed.
