Volunteers wanted to give personalised advice on competency writing

We are looking for volunteers to share their skills and knowledge giving 1:1 advice to civil servants on competency writing at Civil Service Live 2017

We are holding competency surgeries at all of the Civil Service Live events this year. Whether you are an Executive Officer, SCS, or any grade in between, if you have sifting experience and would like to help other civil servants writing competency examples for job applications then we want to hear from you.

A pre-meet (via teleconference) to provide you with briefing and to share materials will be mandatory before taking part in the surgeries. Helping to develop others is a rewarding experience; not only do you help others, it can boost your confidence and enhance your personal skills. We welcome experienced sifters from across the Civil Service to take part in these events.

If you would like to be involved, please check your preferred venue and contact us using the links below, telling us:

  • your grade;
  • your department;
  • your sifting experience;
  • any other relevant information.
