I work as a specialist in central government. I like it, and I like the people I work with but the money is appalling.
I've applied for a few in house roles and I'm not getting anywhere.
Is it the case when you've worked for the gov for a few years, as I have, that you are basically stuffed and no-one wants to know ?
It's not a disaster if I have to stay but I have a fairly strong skillset which would suit an in house role, I'm not asking for the moon on a stick money wise. I've had my CV looked at by a rec con and they thought it was ok. I have a decent degree from a good uni and have a good few years pqe.
Am I damaged goods ? Has anyone worked in central gov and managed to get out ?
