The Civil Service is divided into departments, which deal with areas such as education, health and defence. Most departments have their own agencies dealing with specialist subjects.
Whatever your passion – from the environment to international development, there’s a department or agency to match.
After experiencing long-lasting depression, I am now a Mental Health Champion, supporting colleagues and Fast Streamers across Government and spear-heading new resilience and well-being initiatives. I love my job and the opportunity to make a real difference every day.
Every Civil Service job is also part of a profession – everything from front line work to human resources.
Your profession offers networking opportunities, training and development programmes – plus the chance to work on major cross-government projects.
