Find opportunities that work for you...
You can search for jobs on Civil Service jobs. Once you’ve found a role that interests you and suits your skills and talents, you’re ready to make your application.
There are a number of elements that we use to assess your suitability for a role, so be sure to consider the requirements. Take time to tailor your skills and experience to those requirements. For some roles, we might ask you for a CV and/or personal statement. Give yourself time to make it right. We want to hear what makes you great for this role.
We will assess your application against the criteria listed in the job advert, for example behaviour statements or based on your experience. At this point, we may ask you to take an online test. This helps us see your ability and aptitude in certain situations. The applications that best meet the criteria will be invited to continue to the next steps in the process.
We will let you know what to expect at the next stage. This will include an interview, which may be supported by a presentation, an online test or an assessment centre. We will then be in touch to let you know the outcome. At this final stage, we encourage you to ask for feedback, regardless of the outcome as this can help you in the future.
