Commissioners’ Mark of Excellence

Want to know more about innovative recruitment campaigns? 

On Thursday 20 October @1400 - 1530, the Civil Service Commission is hosting a free online event which you can register to attend to hear from the teams that have been recognised by the Commissioners’ Mark of Excellence award.

This event was originally due to take place in September but was rescheduled following the death of Her Majesty the Queen.  

The event is open to all and is a chance to hear about the campaigns and initiatives that were recognised for their outstanding innovation and commitment in recruiting diverse candidates across all grades into the Civil Service.

The event will be chaired by former Civil Service Commissioner-  Natalie Campbell MBE along with Gerri Clement MBE (co-founder and Vice-Chair of the Cross-Government Social Mobility Network), Roxanne Ohene (co-Chair of the Senior Civil Service Race to the Top Network) and Paul Willgoss MBE (Vice-Chair of the Civil Service Disability Network) who were members of the Commissioners' Mark of Excellence judging panel 2022.

The overall winner was the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with highly commended entries also from the Scottish Government, Department for International Trade, Ministry of Justice, Office for National Statistics, the Crown Prosecution Service and HM Revenue and Customs.

There will be short presentations on each innovative campaign followed by an opportunity to ask questions via ‘Slido’.
