One of the key problems you'll have is most psychology civil service jobs at even HEO will require doctorate level qualifications. The salaries offered at that level are not competitive within the field.

If your looking for non-psychology roles in the civil service then why not look at analyst or project delivery roles?

I work at Cab office as project support, poor pay, I did apply for stats officer but found the test really hard. I'm look for HEO or EO jobs but finding it tough.

Make use of your 5 days CPD and do some shadowing, try networking and explore other departments.
