Budget Manager (Former Employee) – Central London – 16 December 2016
Employed for just over 9 years - part of which was spent in an 'Arm's Length Body' (ALB) of the Department. Most of my duties centred around the month/year end management accounting processes - including, but not restricted to, completion of monthly finance returns, analysis of monthly budget/forecast data and reporting on same to senior management team, running and analysis of monthly payroll report, collating and analysis of finance data received from other ALBs, preparation of monthly Management Information pack for central finance team, dealing with 'ad-hoc' finance queries. Most of my skills/knowledge gained through experience working in MOJ (and other organisations) - commenced AAT studies (through MOJ professional training scheme) I was personally very lucky in having some great line, and other, managers who were always happy to advise and assist as necessary. Hardest part of job - being able to impress Government finance rules and explain finance processes to 'non-finance' colleagues Most enjoyable part of the job - the people I worked with, the general office environments and the benefits/opportunities
Great benefits e.g.flexible working, generous annual leave, training/development opportunities
Personally, the long commute to/from work but also, latterly, some uncertainty in terms of the Department's future direction, structure etc

Principal Officer (Former Employee) – Wayland prison – 10 November 2016
A typical day at work comprised of ensuring prisoners and staff adhered to laid out policies that were established for very good reasons. It is a challenging environment. Management left me to my operate within my own discretion. I worked with extremely hard working colleagues that were very dedicated. The hardest part of this particular job is to keep within Kpt targets. The most enjoyable part was at the end of a day it was satisfying to know that you have given a worthwhile full time shift
Data Input Clerk (Former Employee) – Leamington Spa – 25 October 2016
A nice occupation with no real pressure, what let it down was a supervisor who berated me in front of the office staff for being late, after I had already warned her about a hospital visit prior to attending in an email, to which she had already ackowleged.
Work is interesting & varied. Lots of good people to work with
Administrative Assistant/Officer (Current Employee) – Northampton – 21 October 2016
Your co-workers are generally the best thing and the work is different and challenging they are always looking to improve. Down side is although looking to improve, change is actually very slow and is never prepare properly and management isn't that good.
Administrative Officer (Current Employee) – Port Talbot – 1 October 2016
Only temp jobs available - if you manage to get a permanent position then its less money than temp workers with a lot more responsibility. Things are constantly changing and you dont tend to stay on the same team for more than a few months. They do offer flexi time which is a big bonus as you can start and finish early.
Administration Assistant (Current Employee) – London – 27 September 2016
working here as a temp. It's a nice place to start off. Management needs to be more organised, other than that decent place to work. I have developed the ability to multi task, deal with difficult clients. My self confidence has grown.
Great place to work, as long as you have got experience in many of the departments!
Caseworker (Former Employee) – Birmingham – 7 August 2016
I worked here for a very long time and was proactive in my personal development. I made sure that when opportunities came up to move to other teams and get involved with other departments I was there. I started off within the post team and did every job from stamping post to mailing to stamping very important lasting power of attorney documentation and letters. After working through many departments I settled as a case work managing individual files and cases and having a strong enough skills set to be called upon throughout the company to support when it was required and during busy times with overtime opportunities. Known throughout the company as an approachable, bubbly and happy to train other individual I not only enjoyed working with other, but enjoyed being able to be honest and ask to take on more challenging roles. All managers where different, like everywhere I had my favourites and still keep in touch to this day. The same with colleagues.
Training, One to one, meetings, flexibility, overtime, projects, various areas to work, progression, free drinks.
high staff turn over, constantly changing manager, job secruity
Productive ,friendly ,Have respect for Family Value
