The Civil Service is a whole world you never dreamed existed. It's a far cry from suits, dusty offices and in-trays piled with paper - it's a world you'll want to join.
Our people deal with the most important issues of the day - issues that influence the nation and beyond.
It's vital work - and today's Civil Service is an increasingly streamlined, multi-million pound business where 500,000 motivated people impact on every aspect of life in Britain to deliver first-class services to the public.
