Flexible working hours are ideal but there can be a lot of travelling when working in commercial. Salary is non competitive compared to other govt departments. Bonus scheme is not very good

Most Senior management ar CCS are awful. Bullying in this company from said management is rife. The last staff survey clearly identified this but nothing was done to correct it. If your face does not fit you won't progress. If you don't agree with a suggestion from management you won't progress. If you dare to question any negative parts of the job you won't progress. It is common knowledge amongst staff that certain managers fix interviews to have who 'they like' the salary scale is not a scale, you start on the baseline and only increase with the 1% annual gov pay rise. While there are some very good managers at CCS they won't last as with all the good staff, they eventually get tired of the way it's ran and leave. It's a shame the company don't REALLY listen to it's staff as maybe they could make it a positive place to work to do good for government savings. Instead it's an office full of people on power trips.
Pros
Flexi time - when allpwed to use it.
Cons
Many!

Delivered a managed service for the procurement of all contract requirements, goods and services as part of a niche team to HM Treasury and the Cabinet Office. Supported a team within the departments procurement administrative functions, eg. publishing opportunities to tender for contracts through to awarded contracts on the governments 'Contract Finder' website. Learned and further improved my awareness of frameworks, procurement policy and governance through regular training and refresher courses. My direct managers were a pleasure to work for, always available to help and offer guidance, always encouraging. Working for a niche team, each procurement was different which offered a variety of challenges and kept the working day both stimulating and enjoyable.
Pros
All the benefits of working for the Civil Service
Cons
A fixed term assignment
