Civil Service Government Statistical Service (GSS) placement Watch
I recently applied for the role of Statistical Officer at the GSS and just found out that I received a provisional offer at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
I guess I feel disappointed because given that I have over three years of research experience in molecular plant pathology I hoped that I would end up in DEFRA or at least something vaguely science related.
I have no doubt that MHCLG carries out important work. I just do not have any experience relevant to the work of that department.
Does anyone have any idea regarding how and on what basis a statistical officer is assigned to a department?
Any info would be greatly appreciated - thank you in advance!
