The Civil Service influences everything from industry, energy and the environment to social care, culture and justice. 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.

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.
