About Civil Service Local

With effect from 1 April 2022, Civil Service Local is no longer in operation.

We would like to thank you for working with us over the last 11 years, it has been a pleasure working in partnership with so many different civil servants across the full range of departments and agencies, and across the whole country.

Who are we?

We were a small Cabinet Office team based in areas across the UK. We delivered a core set of unique learning, development and networking events, available in local areas and online to any government department or agency.

Supporting the vision for the Civil Service by ensuring we attract and support great people, generate new ideas and ultimately deliver better results for citizens. The focus is on using the power of the collective to improve capability, skills and business outcomes, by sharing knowledge and experience.

What do we offer?
