WOW - What a way to launch CS Local Scotland on the back of the 'A Brilliant Civil Service In Action' event in Glasgow today, the first of many events I hope to support or help organise.
We achieved the highest attendance rate in the series of roadshow events so far, and over 120 people signed up as interested in supporting CS Local in Scotland.
Thank you! I can't do this on my own so great to have such enthusiasm and passion coming through from the room in discussions today and those that I spoke to about the things we can do together.
This is early days though, and I want to take a bit of time to come and talk to as many of the 40+ different Departments and Agencies there are covering the 43,000 Civil Servants across Scotland to learn about the different business units, the things you have in place already and the things you struggle with that we may be able to unlock together.
Following this event, teams will be working together on the various parts of the vision - making it real, on the ground, in Scotland. Successful teams will be invited to present their work at the Civil Service Live event on Thursday 7 June at the SEC Centre, Scotland's largest exhibition centre, located in the district of Finnieston on the north bank of the River Clyde, Glasgow.
Registration will be open on Wednesday 25 April and you will be able to register for the event and seminars on the Civil Service Live website
Please let me know if you enjoyed the event - or if you didn't attend and have ideas about building a Brilliant Civil Service. And please don't hesitate to get in touch to share your thoughts or to let me engage with your business unit so that we can build opportunities that meet the needs of civil servants in Scotland.
We are committed to ensuring that wherever possible our events are accessible to all participants. If you have any requirements that would help you access our services, please let us know and we will endeavour to make any reasonable changes.
Please let us know if we are doing something that would discourage you from using our services.
We support recruitment practices to help make sure our workforce in locations around the country reflects the make-up of the local community.
