    The work that the CS Local teams do is really important to help us deliver A Brilliant Civil Service. I know linking to Nita and the teams in South West and Wales they do some really great work to help us develop and grow across the departments by collaborating and working together. Indeed these are great opportunities!

      I 100% agree with you Derek Thomas. CS Local is a great initiative in helping The Civil Service to reach it's goals outlined in both the CS Reform Plan and Work Plan. I have attended an event organised by the CS Local team and it had a profound impact with regards to my personal development. I would 110% recommend that those interested in their personal development and that of their colleagues to fully support the work the CS Local team undertakes. Such an opportunity for people to stretch and grow. Well done!!!
