The Brilliant Civil Service vision is clear. Our job is to help all of you working in the largest profession in the Civil Service to do just this. Therefore we’re launching a rolling series of themed campaigns based on the four ‘pillars’ of ‘A Brilliant Civil Service’:

  • Improved Outcomes – a much stronger focus on the difference we can make for citizens, not just on processes and procedures
  • Effective Leaders – with confident leaders who inspire and empower colleagues to be the best they can be
  • Skilled People – our commitment to building a broader set of skills in the Civil Service, to make us more effective and offer more varied careers that will help us retain and attract the best talent
  • A great place to work – creating a truly inclusive environment, in open, modern workplaces, with the technology to get the job done
