We are looking for volunteers to share their skills and knowledge in a cross-departmental competency surgery, giving 1:1 advice to other civil servants.
We would like Grade 6 to Executive Officers with sifting experience to volunteer their time to help other civil servants writing competency examples for job applications, at events that we are planning in both Reading, Berkshire, and Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. These events are likely to take place early in 2017. Even if you can't travel, or these locations are inaccessible to you, you can still contribute as we can arrange for advice to be given over the telephone as well as face-to-face.
A pre-meet (via teleconference) to share materials will be mandatory before taking part in any of the events.
Helping to develop others is a rewarding experience and we welcome experienced sifters from across the Civil Service to take part in these events.
Reasons to get involved
- An opportunity to brush up on your skills and learn new ones;
- To help fellow civil servants looking for promotion or a change of job;
- To use one of your 5 a year learning days;
- To network with others and meet colleagues from other departments.
If you can help please contact us telling us:
- your grade;
- your department;
- your sifting experience;
- other relevant information.
Details of how you can attend the competency surgeries will be published here soon.
