Job shadowing opportunities in the South West and Wales

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Cymru Wales, South West England

Have you ever considered what it would be like to job shadow someone in another government department? Would you like to explore a different avenue of using one of your 5 days a year for learning and development?

Why not try something different and consider job shadowing. Job shadowing is a great way to develop your skills as well as sharing ideas and networking with colleagues from other departments. It gives you the chance to experience different ways of working and to connect with other departments in your area.

We have a large number of contacts in the South West and Wales, that are willing to be shadowed. All they need is you to apply.

A list of all of our shadowing opportunities can be found here. If you are interested in a department or role not currently listed, please contact us, as we may still be able to arrange this for you.

How do I apply?

Simply complete the application form and email it to Heidi Stephens and we will arrange the rest. You don’t need to write 250 words on the application form, but please give some indication as to why you want to apply for the opportunity and what you wish to gain from it.

You will need to seek authorisation from your line manager before expressing an interest in job shadowing. Any travel and subsistence cost must be met by your home department.

Civil Service Local is committed to ensuring that wherever possible our events are accessible to all participants. If you have any specific requirements that will enable you to fully participate, please let us know and we will endeavour to make any reasonable adjustments.

    Can the job shadowing graphic be reproduced within civil service departments. I would like to use it if possible in our new procedure, and promote this blog.
