Important and responsible position
Executive Officer (Former Employee) –  London14 November 2017
No day was typical. A different challenge was faced every day.
My work involved extended periods away from home, travelling nationally and internationally. Often working under alias with no backing from the UK government, you had to think on your feet.
The work was of vital importance to the UK national security, which obviously bought pressure.
Pros
Expenses
Cons
Never knowing when you would go home.

Very structured and very loyal people
Executive Officer (Former Employee) –  Nottingham29 September 2016
Everything i learned whilst in the MOD was worth while. They taught me how to do things properly, to cover all bases, be systematic and plan.

Can be frustrating when military personnel move on and your suddenly faced with a new team or new managers every 2 years but worth the challenge.
Pros
Excellent Training and Support
Cons
Can be redgid and inflexible
