Welcome to Civil Service Local

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: A National Spotlight

LeoCastledineCivil Service Local is a cross departmental initiative, part of Civil Service Resourcing and working closely with the Cabinet Office, that develops significant local influence over the delivery and effectiveness of the reform agenda.

I lead a team of 13 staff based in 8 locations around the country and our challenge is to identify, develop and deliver practical solutions that offer:

  • improved value for money
  • better opportunities for staff and
  • more efficient services to the public

Our work is guided by this challenge and that of the Civil Service Reform Plan.

Through these blog pages my team will be introducing themselves, the many volunteer helpers and secondees who work with us, our programmes and the success stories of ordinary civil servants from across the country. I hope you will enjoy reading about us and then getting involved with what we are doing in a place near where you live or work.

      Civil Service Local do not currently operate in Scotland although we are aware of fledgling Civil Service Learning Networks and discussions that are happening within the Scotland Office about an offering similar to ours.

      Leo Castledine the Head of Civil Service Local is soon to speak to contacts within the Scotland Office and we hope to be able to report progress in developing the offer for Civil Servants in Scotland.
