Helping you find a career in the public sector
By working in the public sector, you'll be keeping the country running smoothly. From our schools, to hospitals, to policies that govern our lives, there are a number of areas you can work in.
You could be working within local government, which is responsible for schools, social care, sports facilities and other state-run services within your area. You could also work on community events if you enjoy the feeling of giving back to the community .
Alternatively, you could work for the Civil Service and be involved with nationwide infrastructures like transport, education and health.
Hundreds of professions and disciplines make up the public sector. Typical areas you could work in include:
- Environmental services
- Building surveying
- Project Management
- Teaching and education
- Health and social care

Governments tend to be very flexible with working patterns and have quickly adopted a ‘flexi-time' scheme which allows you to manage your own working hours to some degree. There is also the added bonus of generous pensions and benefits package. On average, the pay tends to be lower than the private sector, but the enviable working conditions keep a lot of people there.
