In the Public Sector you’ll be making a difference through being a part of the services that keep the country running smoothly. From our schools, to hospitals, to policies that govern our lives, there is a wide range of areas that you could be working in.
You could be working within local government, which is responsible for schools, social care, sports facilities and other state-run services within your area. Within local government you could also work on community events and if you enjoy the feeling of giving back to a community and helping it to thrive you will find this work highly rewarding.
Alternatively, you could work for the Civil Service and central government and be involved with country-wide infrastructures such as transport, education and health. This work is incredibly important and you could even be helping to write legislations and policies that are implemented all across the UK.

Governments tend to be very flexible with working patterns and have quickly adopted a ‘flexi-time’ scheme that allows you to manage your own working hours to some degree. There is also the added bonus of generous pensions and benefits package. On average, the pay tends to be lower than the private sector, but the enviable working conditions keep a lot of people there. They are also dedicated to continued professional development (CPD) and will help you to achieve your career goals.
