Main information

This is your opportunity to do vital, meaningful and society-enhancing work right here in Northern Ireland. Hundreds of influential UK Civil Service rolles, traditionally based in London, are being made available in Ulster

Join us and you’ll be doing important work on behalf of the people of Northern Ireland and of the United Kingdom, more broadly.

The Civil Service influences everything from industry, energy, the environment, to social care, culture and justice. You won’t need to focus on one area.

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.

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 and cyber security.

The 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.

Joining the Civil Service has truly been an enriching experience. The team work, the selflessness and the dedication shown by civil servants is extraordinary. I would encourage others to look out for opportunities to work in Northern Ireland or as part of the Civil Service generally.
