The Civil Service is divided into departments, which deal with areas such as education, health and defence. Most departments have their own agencies dealing with specialist subjects.
Whatever your passion – from the environment to international development, there’s a department or agency to match.
I joined the Civil Service at the age of 17, starting as an Administrative Assistant and have worked my way up. I'm lucky to have had a varied career offering many exciting opportunities. Thanks to the Civil Service being an inclusive employer, I'm empowered to realise my career aspirations.
Every Civil Service job is also part of a profession – everything from front line work to human resources.
Your profession offers networking opportunities, training and development programmes – plus the chance to work on major cross-government projects.

The Work Coach holds a key role in the Department for Work and Pensions as you will be helping people and their families towards financial independence through work and enabling them to get the support they need as they move towards this ambition. Work Coaches are customer focused, dedicated individuals with empathy and compassion and able to deliver an exceptional public service to people who need support.
