Join us for a celebration of the Civil Service on Public Services Day

Wednesday 23 June is United Nations Public Services Day and to mark the occasion, Civil Service Local is hosting an online event to help celebrate all that we achieve, and to start the conversation about how we will continue to evolve as a modernised civil service for the 21st century.

By signing up for our event, you will have the chance to hear personal stories from award-winning teams and individuals that will inspire and inform you, and gain a much greater understanding of the different work taking place across the whole of the Civil Service, with a particular emphasis on the pandemic response and partnership working.

The event will include:

  • Keynote speeches from Rupert McNeil (Chief People Officer) and Alex Chisholm (Chief Operating Officer for UK Civil Service & Permanent Secretary for Cabinet Office)
  • The HMRC/HMT team which as delivered the CJRS (Furlough Scheme) and SEISS (Self-Employed Scheme) during the Covid-19 pandemic
  • Individuals at the heart of the Covid-19 public information campaigns across the UK
  • Personal reflections on a 40 year career in the Civil Service
  • The CS Rising Star Award winner with her thoughts on public service and community
  • Your chance to hear about the new Civilian Reserve
  • An overview of the new CS Vision and how this gives you the opportunity to make a difference

Our Public Services Day event will broaden your knowledge of the Civil Service, and all that it does, and ignite in you a passion to get involved in shaping the future and ensuring that we continue to have a public service that serves all its citizens!

    I am proud to be part of the Operational Delivery Profession, the biggest in Government, and the part thousands of ODPers have played, particularly over the last year, in delivering vital services to the public at home and overseas ,in the case of the Home Office where I work. Do join in this day of celebration hosted by the amazing CS Local Team with some great speakers and some insight into the CS Vison too!
