This afternoon seeks to provide an opportunity for civil servants to find out more about departments, learn about subjects relevant to a cross-departmental audience and develop new skills. There will be a marketplace of departmental stalls together, providing the opportunity to network and make new contacts.

The theme of the event is 'A Brilliant Civil Service'.

    Are there any plans to hold induction events in other areas of the UK?

    Louisa, you have asked exactly the question which came to my mind. Could you confirm - and if so, could you give an indication as to venues/regions and timelines for further events.
