Senior Policy Advisor in London, Greater London
on 22 April 2022
Fantastic people and progressive
Look no further for great work/life balance. You can take time back after busy periods. Excellent and supportive line management at senior levels. Fast paced and sometimes lacks structure around tasks from top down.
Senior Executive Officer in London, Greater London
on 13 April 2022
Good workplace
Defra is a good department to work for, interesting subject areas and a kind culture. It is let down by significant siloes, lack of collaboration and organisation and too many project managers who don't seem to help.

slow and boring
very slow-paced and boring place to work. Few great people though but the executive team is not talented individuals and tries their very best to make a decision when it really needs to be made.
Inspector in York

Great working culture
Moving from the private sector everything is very different, less micromanagement and no expectation to work long hours. Trusted to get work done at a reasonable pace by management. Fantastic training provided and great benefits.
