We are inviting new entrants, who have joined the Civil Service in the past 2 years, to attend a Civil Service Induction event in Hastings on Thursday 5th March 2020.

The aims of this event are for civil servants to learn about the breadth of work undertaken by the Civil Service, encourage them to build their skills and be collaborative in their approach,  and to support civil servants in their personal development. The event will also showcase the support available to civil servants. As an employer we aim to highlight the multitude of opportunities the Civil Service presents to employees.

What is involved?

The event will have a number of speakers presenting a variety of topics where delegates are invited to ask questions, visit a selection of stalls where delegates will be able to gain knowledge of some of the different departments within the Civil Service and have the option and opportunity to network with colleagues.  Some of the events and presentations on the day will include:  

  • A history of the Civil Service 
  • The Civil Service in your location
  • Diversity and Inclusion in the Civil Service 
  • Networking and engaging with colleagues from around the Civil Service 
  • Discussions on personal and professional development opportunities. 

Date – 05 March 2020

Grade – open to any civil servant who has joined the Civil Service in the past 2 years.

    There are a number of staff in this location who joined when it was a non departmental public body who may be interested. Are there plans to do more sessions to longer standing civil servants?
