What Type Of Canberra Public Servant Are You?
No one likes Toby from HR. He sits in his own corner of the office with a mopey look on his face, opening and closing manilla folders. Every now and then he glances up at a framed photo of his daughter and now divorced wife, and sighs deeply as he thinks of what could have been.
If looks could kill, Belinda the Bureaucrat probably wouldn’t be allowed to work in the public service. She has an affinity for procedure and policy. If you so much as talk to her without filling out paperwork, you’re in for a trip to the disciplinary department.
Since starting his PPE degree, Ryan has always dreamt of working in the public service. And uhh well, he’s technically there, fresh out of his undergrad. He gets paid a respectable amount to sort the mail and deliver packages around the city. Only thing is, this job doesn’t have quite the grandeur he imagined when he commenced his glorified arts degree.
Paul has that unfortunate trinity of traits that make him un-promotable - trawls Facebook all day, complains about how tepid his coffee is, and always talking about how much he’s looking forward to cracking open a cold one with the boys over Friday night work drinks. Unfortunately, ten years into the public service workforce, he’s still not sure why Ryan the Mailboy is getting paid more than him.
SHUT THE HELL UP JANE
