I don't quite understand the Band System but I am a recent graduate and I am curious about my eligibility working in the Civil Service. I am assuming EO is the highest I can go?

Hey Charlotte. On the 9th November the DWP are launching their next recruitment round for the EO Work Coach roles.

I have seen that recent graduates have got a position already.

Set up an alert by looking up the Work Coach microsite and apply for that perhaps? They are recruiting thousands of people and at £27,500 starting wage it's a brilliant opportunity.

Good luck with your job hunt

Hey, thanks for getting back to me. I have seen this on a thread. Can you confirm that this is working in a job centre and helping people find vacancies?

I believe that is part of the role yes. Helping people and families become financially independent through work and giving them support and guidence in accessing the appropriate benefits whilst they do.

The DWP provide lots of information about the role, benefits, application process etc online.

EO grade is the sweet spot for graduates with limited work experiences. Many HEO roles require a lot more experience evidenced if you don’t get in through a graduate method such as the Fast Stream. HEO is more difficult for fresh grads.

I would go for anything EO for sure and pay attention to hitting the essential criteria in your personal statement whilst keeping in mind that EO is the first leadership grade in the CS. Junior Manager.

For example if part of the criteria for the role is resolving complex problems for customers, you would evidence a time you’ve resolved a complex problem for someone.
