Hi guys,

Do you have any recommendations for recruitment agencies specialising in the public sector/civil service? I've tried Brook Street but really didn't like them. Can anyone recommend anyone else?

Thank you

There was one called "Manpower" who did one of the HMRC Higher Officer campaigns (042R) last year.

I think HMRC might use them for some of their other campaigns as well. Not sure about other Civil Service departments using them though.

But, your best bet is to skip the agencies completely and go straight to the source - you can search for and find all of the latest Civil Service jobs at
https://www.civilservicejobs.service.../csr/index.cgi

One of the critisms of the agency doing the 042R campaign was the lack of feedback - you had to email the agency and explain that they are leagally obliged to provide you with all information and notes they have on you just to get your feedback! However one of the great things about the Civil Service jobs is feedback is provided. So yeah, go direct to source.

Thanks for the information regarding Manpower.

I'm not having the greatest luck actually applying direct to the CS. Sometimes I'm getting interviews and sometimes I'm not. I think my competencies are the issue, and that getting some CS experience will allow me to write better competencies.

I know recruitment agencies can have CS jobs available which are not advertised on the CS website, and I'm hoping that these temp positions will be more what I'm after as well.

If anyone else has any other recommendations then I would be grateful.
