Even though it probably isn't as easy as some of the larger organisations. Most people will get promoted to APS4, 5 & 6 quite easily.
Plenty of opportunity to grow and for promotion.
It is relatively easy to get promotions to APS4/5 level. After this it can be quite difficult. The agency is quite small and promotions are reliant on others vacating positions and then when they do there a lots of people applying for a couple of roles.
The organisation can be quite 'top-heavy' so it will potentially be difficult to move up quickly
clear process to go up an APS level, process happens every year
Don't know yet but It looks like there are opportunities for capable people if they accept the conditions of the role.
