Welcome to Civil Service in the English Regions (CSER) Programme

Opening up New Opportunities for all

Sir Gus O'Donnell, Head of Home Civil ServiceWhat can CSER offer you?

The programme aims to provide you with the opportunity to:

  • apply for any jobs at any grade in your region
  • join the fast stream with more opportunities in your region
  • gain a recognised qualification through an apprenticeship in your job
  • make more use of interchange to increase your opportunities and develop your skills

CSER is a national programme supported by Sir Gus O’Donnell (Cabinet Secretary and the Head of the Home Civil Service).

"Civil Servants are working right across the country in frontline jobs which are vital to the way the economy runs and the nation functions. The Civil Service in the English Regions programme aims to use that strong regional presence, its scale and diversity, to benefit all civil servants and, through them, the public”.

CSER aims to create a positive culture, identity and brand for the Civil Service in the English regions by:

  • making the Civil Service a career of choice
  • having a diverse and representative workforce
  • building skills we need for the future
  • a happier, healthier and more socially engaged civil service
