As part of our Academy project we are piloting an event for anyone that is new to the Civil Service or has joined in the past two years. We will introduce you to a range of people from a variety of different departments that you may have a lot in common with. We will give you a chance to hear from other people about the benefits that are available to you and how the Civil Service can support your journey.

What Will I Learn?

  • The role and values of the Civil Service
  • Seeing the Bigger Picture in the Civil Service
  • The benefits available to you
  • Hear from various guest speakers including representatives from Civil Service Learning, Fast Stream and a senior civil servant to learn more about the work they do

      Thank you for your question Louisa. We are trialling these events in the NE and YH area, with the forward look of rolling the event out across the UK. Keep a look out on this blog for any future events,

        By then I'll have been in the Civil Service for longer than two years, so I won't be eligible. 🙁

    What a great way of introducing new civil servants to opportunities available throughout the service, and encouraging networking between government departments and agencies.
