Civil Service Live

Civil Service Live is your opportunity to engage with other civil servants, listen to thought-provoking sessions, and hear from inspiring people sharing their experiences, knowledge and expertise. 

The aims of Civil Service Live are to:

  • EDUCATE civil servants by sharing information and new ideas that change thinking and allow them to learn new skills and innovate. 
  • ENGAGE civil servants by demonstrating excellent cross departmental working and building networks to support the delivery of better outcomes.
  • EMPOWER civil servants to demonstrate leadership, learn new skills and improve their working environment to provide better public services.


We recorded all of the sessions at CS Live 2023 and these will be available to watch on demand from early August, along with the slides from each session. We'll write out to you shortly with more information on this but if you have any queries please contact
