Why work in the public sector?
Flexible Working – Government organisations are often quite accommodating to your needs. Flexible working options are considered depending on the role such as part-time, voluntary reduced time, job share, term time, flexi time and home working.
Work-life Balance – On average the public sector offers shorter working hours than in the private sector due to employment awards and agreements that preserve shorter working hours. The public sector is often under less pressure to work more hours due to the emphasis being on improved service over profit.
Training – Public sector bodies can offer you excellent training and staff are pushed to achieve their full potential by continuing their professional development and taking on external training courses.
Progression – As a large multi-discipline employer there are opportunities to develop with a wide range of career opportunities offering progression of responsibility and financial reward.
Diversity and Inclusion – As an organisation that is committed to improving the delivery of public services for everyone in society, public sector bodies are committed to fairness of opportunity. The Civil Service recruitment processes are underpinned by the principle of selection for appointment on merit on the basis of fair and open competition.
Making A Difference – A career in the public sector is the chance to make a positive difference in the lives of others. The sector provides many opportunities for you to do this and can allow you to have a direct impact on the people in your community.
