The civil service helps the government of the day develop and deliver its policies as effectively as possible. We work in three types of organisations – departments, agencies, and non-departmental government bodies (NDPBs). We cover a wide range of areas touching on everyone’s day-to-day lives, such as education, health and policing. Because our organisations deal with so many different aspects of government, civil servants work in an enormous variety of roles. We’re politically impartial. Our workforce includes people who deliver crucial services direct to the public across the UK, such as Jobcentre Plus staff and coastguards. We also have staff working on policy development and implementation, including analysts, project managers, lawyers and economists.
