    I was until last year working in the private sector, but hated it so applied to some public sector places.

    I got offers for:

    Cabinet Office (declined as I didnt want to do the work they had in mind)
    Treasury (as a policy officer)
    Bank of England (grad scheme)
    Ofcom (grad scheme)

    I *may* already be working at one of these places, as two of the offers don't start yet. If you were interested in policy and doing important work, which one would you choose? Which is most prestigious?

    Hey, how long did Ofcom take to get back to you after the assessment day? : )

    Did you accept the Ofcom offer in the end?
