Working for CO

Cabinet Office staff, like all civil servants, enjoy a range of benefits and flexible working environment. There is also an alumni network for present and past employees.

Operating at the very heart of government, Cabinet Office is a vibrant and diverse place to work. We support the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister and ensure the effective running of government. 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. Like all civil servants, Cabinet Office staff also enjoy a range of benefits and flexible working environment.

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.
