Our Departments

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 international development, there’s a department or agency to match.

Jo Ann Moran

I joined the Civil Service at the age of 17, starting as an Administrative Assistant and have worked my way up. I'm lucky to have had a varied career offering many exciting opportunities. Thanks to the Civil Service being an inclusive employer, I'm empowered to realise my career aspirations.
