The future UK civil service

We have a once in a generation opportunity to make a difference to the UK civil service

The civil service continues to go through a period of enormous change. We now see the perfect storm of rising demand and reduced investment that requires some existential questions to be answered, for example: what is the purpose of the civil service?; how do we organise?; and what is my role as a civil service leader in this?

The temptation with change of this nature is that it overwhelms and under-delivers. Like healthy living, the easy pounds are shed through dieting, but longer term benefits only build from changing ingrained habits and behaviours. This is the challenge facing UK civil service leaders right now.

We have a once in a generation opportunity, and this paper stimulates thoughts about how to seize it by taking you through the practical actions to take.

“It is in everyone's interest to retain the civil service as one of the best (if not the best) in the world. This will only happen if the service continues to reinvent itself”
