North West talent – Career opportunities closer to home

Join us and you’ll not only help to shape policy closer to home but also have a positive impact nationwide.

We’ll be committed to your growth and development in return. We’ll offer you opportunities to progress your career and broaden your experience that few organisations can match. We’re here to support our people because they support the nation.

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.
