The Civil Service

The Civil Service

The Civil Service provides services directly to people all over the country, including:

  • paying benefits and pensions
  • running employment services
  • running prisons
  • issuing driving licences

We also have staff working on policy development and implementation, including analysts, project managers, lawyers and economists.

We’re politically impartial and independent of government and work in central government departments, agencies, and non-departmental government bodies (NDPBs). The Civil Service does not include government ministers (who are politically appointed), members of the British Armed Forces, the police, officers of local government or NDPBs of the Houses of Parliament, employees of the National Health Service (NHS), or staff of the Royal Household.

We’re co-ordinated and managed by the Prime Minister, in his role as Minister for the Civil Service. The most senior civil servant in a department is a permanent secretary.

As we’re accountable to the public we need to meet the highest possible standards in all that we do. We aim to have:

  • integrity – putting the obligations of public service above personal interests
  • honesty – being truthful and open
  • objectivity – basing advice and decisions on rigorous analysis of the evidence
  • impartiality – acting solely according to the merits of the case and serving governments of different political parties equally well

We employ 450,000 people across the country and overseas. Our work is everything from advising ministers on policy, to delivering front line services to the public.
