Civil Service Commission

Public Consultation on the Commission's Recruitment Principles (13 January 2014)

The commission has launched a public consultation on its Recruitment Principles –the key document that interprets the legal requirement that selection for recruitment to the Civil Service must be on merit on the basis of fair and open competition.

The Commission has published a consultation document which contains the text of a new version of the Recruitment Principles and a Press Notice.

The consultation document contains a series of questions relating to the revised draft of the Recruitment Principles. The Commission would like to hear from anyone with an interest in the regulation of Civil Service recruitment – in response to the specific questions in the consultation document and also more generally on the Commission’s approach to its statutory responsibilities.
