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.
I joined the Civil Service at the age of 17, starting as an Administrative Assistant and have worked my way up. I'm lucky to have had a varied career offering many exciting opportunities. Thanks to the Civil Service being an inclusive employer, I'm empowered to realise my career aspirations.
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.
