Civil Service Commission

Civil Service Commission to hold virtual 'Open Week' 18-22 March (4 March 2013)

The Civil Service Commission is holding a virtual ‘Open Week’ from Monday 18th – Friday 22nd March 2013.

Commissioners will be available throughout the week to answer questions or respond to comments about their work from civil servants or members of the public via email or twitter.

The Commission was established to provide assurance that selection to the Civil Service is made on merit on the basis of fair and open competition. The Commission also hears complaints from civil servants under the Civil Service Code. The Code describes the core values of the Civil Service: Impartiality, Objectivity; Integrity and Honesty and forms part of the terms and conditions of all civil servants.

The Commission is independent of Government and the Civil Service. The Commissioners  are drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds and are selected after open competition for a five year term. Sir David Normington is the First Civil Service Commissioner.

If you would like to contact the Commission as part of Open Week you can e-mail us at or send us a question or comment via the Commission’s dedicated Twitter account @openweek or follow us on Facebook.

Questions and answers will be posted on our dedicated Open Week Page throughout the week.
