Vision: A brilliant Civil Service that helps to keep the United Kingdom prosperous and secure, supporting the governments we serve in implementing their commitments and delivering high - quality services for the public.

IMG_6415As well as attending as a delegate why not consider volunteering to help at one of the venues?

We always need enthusiastic and energetic volunteers at all of the Civil Service Live events. They are essential to the smooth running of each event and for the volunteer it’s a great way to connect with your colleagues, to learn from seminars and to be more involved with the conference itself.

To find out what’s involved and to register as a volunteer see how you can get involved. Please register as a volunteer by 7 May 2016.

Registration for Civil Service Live 2016 will be open on 13 April, see why you should attend.

    Great to see this excellent event come to Sheffield this June. I attended last year's Civil Service Live and was really impressed - there's something for everyone, with inspirational talks and interesting awareness sessions throughout the day. I'm looking forward to getting involved as a volunteer this year!

    Disappointed that the event is not in Bristol this year. The Cardiff venue is rather awkward to get to and will increase travel time and costs ,compared to BristoL,l for South West staff.

    Hi can you advise why there is no planned event in the North East this year?

    Thanks for your comments regarding locations for CS Live this year. Civil Service Local doesn't select the venues but we are aware that the intention is to open up the events to as many people as possible. Varying the venues (Bristol and Newcastle have been used on more than one occasion) will hopefully give civil servants in new localities an opportunity to attend, whilst remaining accessible to those from further afield.

    Thanks Ian, The Cardiff venue is situated near the centre which has extensive travel links to both the South West and to the Midlands - just a 20 minute walk from Cardiff Central Station, 15 minutes from Cardiff Queen Street and 5 minutes from Cathays Station. The Sheffield location will also allow civil servants from a variety of locations to experience CS Live. We hope to see you in one of the locations - I'm sure it will be worth the extra journey.
