Civil Service talent management
Developing civil servants’ skills to their highest potential is crucial to the future of the Civil Service.
We want leaders who demonstrate the qualities of the Leadership Statement and are inspiring, confident and empowering leaders. We want to build a robust succession pipeline to train the leaders of the future.
Good talent management leads to greater efficiency. It delivers a diverse and inclusive organisation in which the best people thrive, whoever they are. It is a key leadership issue and a critical part of any senior role
