This was a great place to work, you actually felt like you did worthwhile work, although sometimes the hours were long and a very small group of the public could be very demanding, however most clients were great to work with, they understood the limitations and were flexible with their needs.

I enjoyed the work which was varied and the dept provided - more ... opportunities to work within various areas of this super department.

Having said that I was deeply disappointed when we were privatised as I consider that some of the functions undertaken by the dept are difficult to replicate in NGO. - less
