    Any plans to run a similar event in the West Midlands?

    When there's more talk of events outside of London, that's great to hear.

    To most Civil Servants though "outside of London" doesn't mean Croydon frankly.

    Indeed, that's harder for Civil Servants from outside London to get to than say Whitehall, especially for a 0900 start.

      We try and vary where we hold events but wherever we do we will never please everyone. We are looking to hold the next JLNE in Norwich

    I'm looing forward to this event. Normally these type of events are usually geared at HEO and above. I am so happy there is something for AA - EO to attend and gain some knowledge and experience. Long overdue. Well done Funke.

    Brilliant, thank you! I'm absolutely gutted I can't attend this one as I only received approval from my manager this morning after requesting on the 3rd of June and now it is sold out! 🙁 I've popped my name on the waiting list anyway!
