HR jobs in the Civil Service

I am considering making an application for a role in the Civil Service. Does anyone have any experience in applying (as an outsider) and are there any tips or tricks to make sure my application gets picked? I have looked at the Success Profiles and other application documents they provide.

I applied for one other position before but my application was rejected. I feel that if I can get in front of a panel at interview I can perform well, but can't get past the hurdle of my application being picked.

Thank you for your help

  • I cannot offer any insider knowledge of the Civil Service. I only worked for them many years ago as a temp and not in HR.

    My suggestion is if the job looks interesting then apply. Use whatever additional information they provide and cover every point they raise in your application.

    Good luck
