In my experience public sector workers tend to stay with their organisations for a long time, possibly due to the good working conditions and opportunities they have had to develop their career in-house. Most organisations of this type have internal HR departments and completing internal application forms and interviews is the norm. This means that when staff eventually leave they generally do not possess an up-to-date CV and have become out of touch with how one should be completed. They may also be experiencing some trepidation around their future prospects for employment with doubts about the value of their skills and perceived lack of qualifications.
