East of England talent – Career opportunities closer to home

Nationally, the Civil Service influences everything from employment to social care, education to energy, and industry to inclusion.

In the East of England particularly, our work touches subjects as diverse as the rural economy and energy security, regeneration, borders and defence.

The Civil Service career offer

When you begin your career in the Civil Service you will join an inclusive team, with exciting opportunities to help shape what happens within society.

In recent years, civil servants have worked on areas that have had a big impact on citizens, including the COVID-19 response, EU exit and international trade, cyber security, and the economy, to name a few.

The UK Civil Service offers many different avenues for potential applicants to join our organisation, including the Civil Service Fast Stream and Civil Service Apprenticeships.

Have a look, and see if any of them are right for you.

“The Civil Service is simply amazing. There are so many different types of roles on offer, you work alongside supportive colleagues, and most importantly, you go to work each day knowing you’re making a difference to your community and how the country operates.”

You won’t need to focus on one area either.

The great benefit of a career with us is that you can move around – as well as up – experiencing a wide variety of career challenges and experiences found almost nowhere else. These are roles of real influence.

As well as having a national significance, you’ll join a group of people acting as the collective voice of the East of England, ensuring that Whitehall and Westminster understand the needs and goals of diverse communities from Cambridge to Colchester, Norwich to Southend, and everywhere in between.
