Civil Service Commission

Commission to hold virtual 'Open Week' 24 - 28 February 2014 (13 February 2014)

Building on the success of last year, the Commission is holding another virtual ‘Open Week’ from Monday 24th to Friday 28th February 2014.

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

And as part of the Open Week, we are hoping to receive more response to our publicconsultation on the Commission’s Recruitment Principles.

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.

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.
