Job summary

The Government People Group exists to work with departments, professions, and functions to build a modern, effective Civil Service.

We support the government workforce with the right skills and capability. We are working with leaders to get the right people in the right jobs, with the right skills and continuous learning to excel in their roles.

We provide leadership, and in turn, create leaders with exceptional line management capability across departments, influencing partners in the wider public sector and beyond. This involves getting our retention and reward strategy right, to nurture specific skills, and create pride and resilience in our workforce.

Our role is also to provide system leadership across central government in pulling together back-office services. Collectively, we help support the Cabinet Office’s priority to drive efficiencies, and reforms that will make government work better, to ultimately provide a better service to the public.

The SSfG Portfolio sits in Civil Service HR (CSHR) in Cabinet Office and works closely with programmes in six other government departments that between them span all central government departments and several government functions. There are also several internal Cabinet Office programmes delivering parts of the strategy. The Benefits team sits in the SSfG Portfolio team and its purpose is to provide a consistent reporting of costs and benefits across Government departments.

The key role of the Benefits team is to define a consistent methodology for reporting costs and benefits across all departments. As part of a small Benefits team, you will need to engage with Benefits Leads across departments and Programmes to collate and facilitate the flow of information, contribute to the development of cross government benefits reporting for slide packs and briefing documents.

Working with departments and workstreams you will need to form strong relationships across various departments and Government Functions teams to remove roadblocks and promote knowledge sharing.

Reporting to the Benefits Lead, the job holder will need to have strong problem solving skills and able to adopt to new work requirements to deliver to the team objectives.
