A different perspective on the Civil Service

As civil servants we often view the role of the Civil Service through the lens of experience. We know that what we do improves the lives of our citizens - but do they know that? We teamed up with journalism students from Liverpool City College so they can cover events on our behalf while adding to their portfolio of work. These aspiring young journalists have a keen eye and a different perspective. Do they see what we see? Student Liam Bulloch had his first brush with civil servants when he attended the North West Academy.

The thrill of going off-script

“There is no script and no process’. These words could be unsettling to civil servants, accustomed as we are to plans, procedures, standard work instructions and the like. But the idea of working without the usual restrictions can also be liberating, as I found out on my first day with Civil Service Local.
