Who we are

The UK Civil Service implements the policy of the Government of the day and delivers crucial public services.

The UK Civil Service is made up of a wide range of agencies and departments that cover many different areas of government policy and administration.

Some key agencies within the Civil Service include: Cabinet Office, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Home Office, Ministry of Defence, Treasury, Department for Education, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Department for Transport, and Department of Health and Social Care.

Working for the UK Government

Most government agencies in the UK have flexible working arrangements available, which allows staff to work part-time hours for a reduction in salary.

This policy varies from role to role, however, so please check to see if a job is eligible for "part-time" work.

  • Optional 4 day work week (80% salary) for many positions
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Competitive salary and pension scheme
