Building a more diverse Senior Civil Service

The next Civil Service Commission diversity event will take place via Zoom on Wednesday 23rd February, 2.00 - 3.30pm.

Do you aspire to reach the Senior Civil Service but have no idea about the route to get there? Do you think your non-traditional background means you won’t be successful in applying for roles in the Senior Civil Service? Think again.

The Civil Service Commission regulates recruitment into the Civil Service to make sure it is fair, open and merit-based. Our Commissioners personally chair recruitment competitions for Senior Civil Service roles.

Aimed specifically at those from diverse backgrounds who are interested in entering the Senior Civil Service, this free online event will be led by independent Civil Service Commissioner, Natalie Campbell MBE. Other speakers include Paul Gray (Civil Service Commissioner), Seonaid Webb MBE (Deputy Director, DEFRA and Deputy Disability Champion), Gerri Clement MBE (Programme Director, CSHR) and Nagesh Reddy (Portfolio Director, DWP).

- Learn about different pathways into the Senior Civil Service

- Hear a diverse panel of senior civil servants talk about their own experiences

- Find out about the recruitment process and get interview tips and guidance on making your application

- Opportunity for Questions and Answers via Slido

A recording of this event will later be made available via the Commission’s website if you are unable to attend on the day.

Please submit any questions to the panel (including your CS grade) via Slido prior to the event (as well as during) using: #DivSCS
