Content Themes

All content delivered at Civil Service Live 2019 aims to:

EDUCATE civil servants by sharing information and new ideas that change thinking and allow civil servants to learn new skills.

ENGAGE civil servants by making them feel part of a brilliant civil service, demonstrating excellent cross departmental working and building networks of civil servants who can support each other to improve outcomes.

INSPIRE civil servants to adopt the vision and demonstrate leadership, learn new skills and improve their office environment to provide better public services.

The Civil Service vision ‘A Brilliant Civil Service’ forms the banner under which Civil Service Live sits. 

A brilliant Civil Service that helps to keep the United Kingdom prosperous and secure, supporting the governments we serve in implementing their commitments and delivering high quality services for the public.

United by our strong sense of public service, we continue to live by the enduring values – integrity, honesty, impartiality and objectivity - that run through all that we do.

To make the vision a reality we will deliver improved outcomes for the country, from effective leaders, leading skilled people in a great place to work.

Civil Service Live is your opportunity to delve deeper into these four themes, learn from your colleagues, hear about best practice and be inspired to do things differently.

Alongside the four pillars of the vision, Civil Service Live also plays host to a fifth theme, exploring the international context of Her Majesty’s Government’s work.

Improved Outcomes

This theme focuses on how we can build trust and deliver the best results for the country through efficient services that are designed around user need. Sessions will look at best practice in public service delivery, and the skills and approaches required to achieve improved outcomes. 

Effective Leaders

Great leadership is one of the keys to a more effective and efficient Civil Service. This theme will provide opportunities for civil servants to explore and share experiences and expectations of leaders in the multi-disciplinary and changing environment of Government.

Skilled People

This theme will demonstrate how the Civil Service is investing in its people to ensure they are high performing, adaptable and take personal responsibility. There will be focussed sessions looking at career development, how staff can continue to develop the skills they need to meet the demands of a modern Civil Service, and how can we best develop our talent.

A Great Place To Work

The Civil Service needs to be a great place to work. This means that it will be inclusive, flexible, modern and connected, sitting at the heart of a wider public service. Reflecting our need to encourage openness, challenge, innovation and excellence, by exploring social mobility, how we are becoming a more diverse workforce, operational delivery and our customer focus.

Global Britain

This theme will provide an insight into the international context Her Majesty’s Government is operating within, and prompt civil servants to consider the implications of our international activities on their own role and responsibilities.
