“One of the things I really enjoy as a Commissioner overseeing appointments processes is the huge diversity of roles and responsibilities in the Civil Service. The new Covid-19 response campaign HereForYou really highlights that.” Isabel Doverty, Civil Service Commissioner HereForYou really highlights that.”
Isabel Doverty, Civil Service Commissioner
From sourcing and procurement and to prisons and mental health support, the campaign showcases the work of the Civil Service in supporting the Government to deliver for citizens.
The Commission regulates recruitment to the Civil Service to provide assurance that civil servants are selected on merit on the basis of fair and open competition and to help safeguard an impartial Civil Service.
“As someone whose career has been largely in the private sector, I was surprised just how many different types of jobs there are in the Civil Service. When I am chairing panels for senior appointments, I’m often struck by how exciting and challenging some of these roles are. Departments are always keen to attract a wider field of candidates from different backgrounds or with new experience, and I hope the #HereForYou campaign makes people think about whether the Civil Service is somewhere they might want to put their skills and experience to use.”
