Pride of the Civil Service Awards - deadline extended

The Civil Service vision sets out our shared ambition to be ‘A Brilliant Civil Service’: one 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.

The awards will again bring civil servants together to recognise and celebrate the incredible work they do to improve the lives of people in the north west whilst also supporting our country. They recognise the special skills and abilities developed by individuals whilst undertaking voluntary activity in local communities and celebrates what they bring to the organisation as a result.

The 2017 award ceremony will be held on 17th November at the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue training centre, Manchester.
