If you’re motivated to make positive changes and enjoy seeing the impact that these can have on communities then a career in local or central government could be right for you. You’ll help to implement a variety of policies and procedures, ensuring they’re delivered effectively and offer value for money.
Operational Delivery Officer
You’ll play a vital role in keeping the country running and making a difference to the lives of millions of people. Roles are many and varied, and can range from carrying out searches on people, vehicles, freight and baggage to issuing passports and processing driving licence applications.
As a commercial professional you’ll need to be forward-thinking and financially astute – you’ll find ways to transform the delivery of public services while securing value for taxpayers’ money.
IT Support Technician
If you’re tech savvy with great problem solving skills then this could be the role for you. As an IT Support Technician you’ll need a good knowledge of computer software and hardware – as well as the ability to explain technical issues to non-technical users.
With strong organisational skills and attention to detail you’ll be the one who keeps things ticking over in the office… Duties could include answering phone calls, responding to queries, ordering supplies or updating databases with relevant information.
Managers rely heavily on their personal assistants so you’ll be required to take on a great deal of responsibility. Your day-to-day activities could include arranging meetings, taking notes, handling telephone calls and enquiries and responding to emails on behalf of your Manager.
Compliance / Risk Officer
In this role you’ll provide relatively straightforward support and advice to your organisation on specific areas of your expertise to ensure that policies are being correctly applied. You may have to analyse data, maintain records, work on audits/reviews and produce reports.
