Administrative Assistant in Belfast, County Antrim

laid back experience
a laid back place to work. I have worked here throughout the pandemic and continue to do so. Flexible working arrangements in place, which help with work/life balance

Depends on what department you work for
I did 9 years for DFC/DWP, Belfast benefit centre and this was a terrible experience and I would not advise anyone on seeking employment here. After 8 hard years of trying to get out I finally moved firstly to DfI and the Department of Education. Both departments are amazing and in the last few years my career has advanced since I left the Plaza benefits office. Unfortunately for lower grade new entrants there is a possibility they might end up in this type of department which I compare to a badly run call centre. However for anyone lucky enough to go into Department of Education or Infrastructure, then this is a great opportunity and I’d thoroughly recommend

A fantastic work environment, friendly colleagues and management. Opportunities to undertake courses to improve yourself.Agency staff unable to apply for permanent employment other than through external recruitment drive - despite doing the job.
Confidentail Typist seconded to the Police Federation NI (Civil Service) in Belfast
on 18 February 2022
In Forestry Division mainly office work, good learning experience. Then I worked for Police Federation and loved the work in various police stations.
Days were always exciting and different. Taking shorthand during interrogations and typing from confidential tapes. Hardest job was audio typing serious crimes which was harrowing. Loved the teamwork working with office and police staff in various police stations. We reported to the Chief Superintendent who managed the Police Station.
Administrative Officer in Belfast

Good place to work, very hard to get a transfer to a different department.
On the whole a good place to work, the people are mostly friendly, the work can be hard and stressful, a lot depends on the department you are placed in and therefore the type of work you are involved in. Promotions are very hard to come by, you have to be in the right place at the right time. Job security flexi time and leave is generally good.
