The Civil Service helps the Government of the day to develop and deliver its policies as effectively as possible.
It incorporates three types of organisations – departments, agencies, and non-departmental government bodies (NDPBs) that work in a wide range of areas, touching on everyone’s day-to-day lives, such as education, health and policing.
Because our organisations deal with so many different aspects of government, civil servants work in an enormous variety of roles.
Becoming a civil servant could be as simple as applying for one of the many jobs advertised on our jobs website.
We also offer a variety of fast track routes for promising graduates and experienced professionals.
Our professional entry routes encourage people with skills developed in the private sector to transfer into the Civil Service at the right level. You can then apply those skills to make a real difference to our everyday lives. There are 22 different professions covered, and a number of different ways to apply.
