      Pros

      Opportunities to move around with plenty of job options once you are in. Excellent training/ CPD Reasonable pay at Grade 7 level Good work life balance Flexi time Good working culture Active efforts in inclusiveness and diversity Interesting and impactful work Job security

      Cons

      Constantly changing, so difficult to get comfortable. You sometimes have to drop projects you have spent a while on because it is no longer a ministerial priority. You have to park your own opinions and work with the government of the day. This can be frustrating if you disagree with a particular policy angle. Pay rises only really occur on promotion and these rises get smaller after Grade 7. Public sector will continue to get hit with pay restrictions following covid19.
