Asim and Michelle talk about their career journeys and development within the Civil Service.
The Civil Service is divided into departments, which deal with areas such as education, health and defence. Most departments have their own agencies dealing with specialist subjects.
Whatever your passion – from the environment to promoting the UK's interests overseas, welfare & the economy to keeping our country safe, there’s a department or agency to match.
In 2020 I rejoined the Civil Service working on a part-time basis at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. I began my Level 5 Apprenticeship (Foundation Degree) a few months from starting in post. I knew I'd come back when I left the Civil Service 3 years ago and I'm so glad I did.
Every Civil Service job is also part of a profession – everything from front line work to human resources.
Your profession offers career development pathways & frameworks, training and development programmes and networking opportunities – plus the chance to work on major cross-government projects.
