Working for Cabinet Office

Operating at the heart of government, Cabinet Office is a vibrant and diverse place to work.

We support the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister and ensure government runs effectively. We are also the corporate headquarters for government, in partnership with HM Treasury, and we take the lead in certain critical policy areas. This means that Cabinet Office’s work is far reaching, providing an interesting and varied workload.

Cabinet Office is a medium-sized department, with the Crown Commercial Service (an executive agency) operating out of the department. Cabinet Office staff have a wide and exciting range of employment opportunities and, like all civil servants, enjoy a range of benefits and a flexible working environment.

Cabinet Office have parental leave benefits that include maternity, adoption or shared parental leave of up to 26 weeks full pay, followed by 13 weeks statutory pay, a further 13 weeks unpaid, and paternity leave of 2 weeks full pay.

We want the Cabinet Office to reflect the very best of modern Britain and encourage applications from all suitably qualified candidates, irrespective of personal background or circumstances.
