Top 10 reasons why you should work at the Cabinet Office

Category: Cabinet Office

With over 1600 employees, the Cabinet Office compromises one of the most senior and critical layers of the Civil Service and offers a wide variety of benefits to its employees.

1: Pension plan

The “Defined Benefit” Pension plan offered by the Cabinet Office is considered one of the very best available in the public sector, with personal contribution rates increasing the higher your salary gets.

2: Carer Confident Scheme

The Government has recently started to promote its commitment to support those who provide care for others, such as sick family members or disabled children. The level of support afforded to those employees in such circumstances is of such a high standard that Carers UK, who organise the scheme, have given the Civil Service level 2 accreditations.

3: Flexible working and “returnship”

A Flexible Working Network has been setup to demonstrate the Cabinet Office’s commitment to giving their employees more control around their working hours. In addition, the Civil Services Returners Programme enables those who have been out of work, perhaps because of maternity leave, a chance to re-integrate into the workplace and develop new skills.

4: Military leave

To demonstrate its commitment to the Armed Forces and the Civil Service, the Cabinet Office now offers active-duty reservists, an additional 10 days paid leave, in order to allow them to more easily complete their annual training requirements.

5: Training and development

The Cabinet Office constantly looks to ensure its employees feel they are receiving the kind of on-the-job training and support they need to advance their career. This includes granting five Learning and Development days a year and informal weekly mentoring sessions.

6: Time off

The Cabinet Office seeks to ensure its employees have every opportunity to develop well-rounded lives outside of work. Civil servants are encouraged to take one day off a year for volunteering, although this can be spread out over a longer period of time; for example, an hour a week over seven weeks. This is in addition to things like family medical leave or unpaid extended leave.

7: LGBT support network

As a part of its bid to tackle diversity and inclusion, the Cabinet Office maintains a support network for LGBT employees, run by its members. People can go with questions or concerns regarding their sexuality which relate to their work-life.

8: Race Equality (CORE) Network

In a similar fashion, CORE was established to help work with both the Cabinet Office and the Executive Committee to help maintain ethnic diversity and representation in all departments. Again, this network is run and maintained by its members.

9: The Gender Equality Group

The purpose of this organisation is to help ensure full gender representation across all levels of the Cabinet Office, and to enable all staff to achieve their career aspirations regardless of gender.

10: Perks and benefits

Working at the Cabinet Office comes with various other miscellaneous benefits, such as participation in the Ride to Work Scheme, gym memberships, car allowances, employee discounts and season ticket loans.
