Civil Service Commission

Civil Service Commissioners

We are appointed by Her Majesty the Queen on the recommendation of the Minister for the Civil Service.
We are recruited on merit following public advertisement and a fair and open selection competition. From our different careers and interests, we bring experience of the public, private and voluntary sectors and a clear and independent perspective. This helps us to support a Civil Service that is effective, politically impartial, and that builds upon its core values to meet the challenges of today and of tomorrow.

There are currently 11 Commissioners.
