Civil Service Commission

Commission launches consultation on revisions to the Recruitment Principles 15 January to 26 February 2018 (15 January 2018)

The Civil Service Commission has launched a consultation  on some proposed changes to its Recruitment Principles.

As we explain in the consultation document, this is not a wholesale revision. The most significant changes are designed to allow the Commission to more easily support government employment initiatives to provide work opportunities for a range of disadvantaged groups.

We have also taken this opportunity to better align the Recruitment Principles with the Commissions strategic priorities, and to provide clarity on a number of points where feedback has indicated this might be beneficial.

We would be grateful for any comments. These should be sent to to be received by 26 February.
