Most people aren’t aware of everything the UK Civil Service does. Our job is to support the government of the day to implement its policies effectively on behalf of every community across the UK. In practice, that means we touch every aspect of life. It also means we have a truly astonishing range of possible career paths from which you can choose, and choose again.

This year for Careers Week, we’ve created loads of great resources to help students investigate their potential, explore careers in the Civil Service, and find their path to success.
