Discover your next step in Liverpool

It’s that time of year when civil servants start planning our development for the next 12 months. Maybe you’re thinking about making the move to a different department? But do you know which other government departments are in your area? Come to our Discover Liverpool event to find out what opportunities await.

Inspire the next generation in Crewe

Would you like to improve your skills and competencies while helping to raise the aspirations of school children? Do you live near Crewe? Why not volunteer for our Inspiring Young People project? It gives students practical advice to help prepare them for the world of work, while providing you as a civil servant with a valuable opportunity to develop yourself.

Inspired, engaged, energised: Steven Broderick's journey of development

Through my involvement with several Civil Service Local projects, I’ve learned how cross-government working can lead to sharing good practice and discovered the importance of engaging with people at all levels. I’ve benefitted from my experiences, and so has my employer, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

Network helps apprentices learn to develop

As part of National Apprenticeship Week, our blog will showcase how Civil Service Local is supporting the drive to celebrate and promote the benefits of becoming an apprentice. Today, we highlight how our learning and development (L and D) network is aiming to pool knowledge from across the Civil Service to support the government’s aim of increasing the number of apprentices in the public sector.

Networking continues improvement

“Don’t even think about it – just do it!” A recorded address from John Manzoni, the Civil Service CEO, encouraged colleagues to get involved with Civil Service Local and help make a difference to citizens. Colleagues at a Continuous Improvement event in Manchester took him at his word, as I found out.

Celebrating our citizen project volunteers

Civil Service Local North West held celebration events to thank the volunteers whose hard work and enthusiasm has made the citizen focussed projects so successful. Mandy Morris, from HM Courts and Tribunals Service, took part in the Going Forward project at Hindley Green prison and went to one of the events, where she swapped stories and reminisced about how she had made a difference.

Start the new year with a new opportunity

Would you like to improve your skills and competencies while helping to raise the aspirations of school children? Applications are open now for the next phase of our Inspiring Young People project, which aims to give students practical advice to help prepare them for the world of work, while providing Civil Servants with a valuable opportunity to develop themselves.
