Job Shadowing is a good way for civil servants to experience what it is like to work in another government department. It is a tool that can be used for your own personal development, showing you new ways of working and to gain new ideas for when you return to your own department.
I am looking to see if there is much demand for this in London - or whether existing departmental arrangements are sufficient. Please leave a comment or email me with your thoughts.
In the meantime I spotted a line on an advert currently being shown in the south west of England and thought I would share it with you. A Policy Lead in DEFRA is offering an opportunity to shadow him. He works once a week in London and is happy to meet people here. Read more in the advert.
Don't forget to let me know what you think about shadowing - and if you can offer an opportunity for a civil servant in London let me know.
