The Junior Leaders Network is a fantastic opportunity to hear from successful civil servants, network and learn about different government departments, to be inspired, motivated and encouraged to succeed in making the Civil Service brilliant!
The five-day Middle Managers’ Academy (MMA) returned in June at the Wintergardens in Blackpool following a successful 2016 launch when members of Civil Service Local’s steering group identified a gap in training opportunities for HEO and SEO leaders.
Thousands of civil servants descended on Manchester for the return of Civil Service Live to the North West. They learned new skills, made new contacts, and came away inspired to help deliver the vision of a Brilliant Civil Service.
Inspired by their time at the 2016 ESEL Junior Leader’s Academy the Hurricane family wanted to help other potential leaders and came up with the idea of a ‘Civil Service Leadership Ladder’ for their project.
Civil Service Local is pleased to announce an opportunity for civil servants in the east, south east and London to join our latest cross-departmental Academy programme for junior grades.

Building capability is one of the key aims of Civil Service Local. As part of our ongoing look back at our first five years, Steering Group member Steve Field tells us how empowering people to be the best they can be is at the heart of what we do.
The second part of the Middle Managers’ Academy was held in Preston at Lancashire Police HQ, so the appearance of TV detectives Kojak and Columbo wasn’t surprising. But the serious message of the event was the importance of middle managers developing themselves so they can be better, more inspiring leaders.
How to improve a team’s performance is one of the key concerns of any manager. Paul Brown led a discovery session on how to drive high-performing teams, and his candid, relaxed style found favour with an engaged audience in Birkenhead . . .
