Civil Service Connect is coming to the new Government Hub, 3 Glass Wharf, in Bristol on 25th February and we want you to join us.
This event provides an opportunity for civil servants to build new networks, find out more about departments in the area and build your skills and knowledge by attending learning sessions on a range of subjects relevant to a cross-departmental audience. There will be a marketplace of departmental stalls and an opportunity to hear from an inspirational guest speaker.
Who is involved?
A wide range of departments and organisations are participating in the event, including HMRC, MOD, ACAS, Environment Agency, DEFRA, Cabinet Office, CSSC, the Surge and Rapid Response Team, Animal & Plant Health Agency, Crown Commercial Service, Rural Payments Agency and the SW and Wales Social Mobility network.
The event supports the vision for a Brilliant Civil Service which encourages departments to be connected and innovative, promoting the Civil Service as a great place to work.
