Civil Service UK

Type: Public
Founded: 1850

Countries don’t just run themselves.  Working with the Government, civil servants draft the laws, set up the systems, develop the ideas and provide the advice to ensure the UK is run effectively.  The range of areas the Civil Service covers is so huge that we have a direct impact on pretty much all walks of life, including yours. Here are some of the things we do:

Keep the UK strong: we create the environment to support industries, small businesses and entrepreneurs to create jobs and put money in your pocket.  We set the education agenda  and provide retraining for those out of work.

Keep the UK safe: we are the secret services and border control protecting you on a daily basis.  We help the Government make choices on the direction of the police, the justice system and the armed forces. We work on climate change, counter terrorism and foreign policy.  

Keep the UK supported: we are generators of ideas, developing public policy on anything from how to keep your Grandparents warm at night to ensuring where you live is a happy place to be.  We oversee the NHS and social services whilst also bringing you super high speed broadband.

And we do so much more (we even helped run the Olympics!) There are about 430,000 of us and we’re organised into almost 100 different departments and agencies across the UK, like the Department for International Development, the Prime Minister’s Office and the British Film Institute.  Once you join the Civil Service you can apply for jobs at any one of these places, giving you the opportunity to develop an incredibly interesting and varied career both at home and abroad.  So if you want to make a difference whilst working in an environment that puts developing you at its core, then there’s no better place for you than the Civil Service.
