Reprographic Officer

I enjoyed working with the people and the equipment within the department. The typical day would consist of Photocopying, Scanning, Printing and Binding, along with fielding telephone calls and emails.

Very Good chances to progress.

I worked at the MOD for just over 18 and fully recommend this place as a great place of work. The chances of career progression are very high and are quite often.

A government department that has been cut to the bone

This department can be a great place to work but has recently been subjected to some areas being taken over by private companies with a lack of understanding - The hardest part of the job is explaining there are significant issues in delivering Defence requirements against Government money. Co-workers are hard working and good fun.


long hours


a reducing work force making promotion difficult
