I personally think the civil service example is not a great idea for two reasons.
Firstly it kind of is almost code for 'none of your business'. Even before this if someone said they worked in the civil service I always assumed it was something else and more than likely security forces related.
And secondly it is widely known that the civil service are in general cutting jobs not taking on. That could lead to more questions.
Why tell anyone your applying? Only my wife and parents know I'm applying and only told my parents recently.
There's not much hiding you can do from neighbours, people aren't that stupid. If that's going to be an issue it might be worth considering a move.
