Event description

Description

This is a new event called Civil Service Connect, which has been designed and organised by a team of people from different civil service departments in Scotland.

For many of us there is limited opportunity to engage with others outside of our own departments. Civil Service Connect seeks to provide an opportunity for civil servants to find out more about departments in their area, learn about subjects relevant to a cross-departmental audience and develop new skills. This event will involve a market place of departmental stalls together with short workshop sessions on a variety of relevant subjects, some inspirational speakers and the opportunity to network and make new contacts. It is open to civil servants of all grades working in Scotland and from all UK and Scottish Government departments.

There will be:

  • a mix of stalls from a number of departments working across the surrounding area
  • career talks by senior leaders, designed to motivate and inspire you
  • an opportunity to increase your knowledge and capability with informal networking

Find out more about the departments and what they do, look for ways you can connect and build your network, share ideas and ‘see the big picture’. The event supports the vision for A Brilliant Civil Service which encourages departments to be connected and innovative, promoting the Civil Service as a great place to work.

This event can count towards your 5-a-year learning and development days. You will need to seek authorisation from your line manager in order to attend and any travel and subsistence expenses must be met by your home department. Please note that lunch/refreshments won't be provided however there is a canteen on site and you must bring a Civil Service pass with you. Please also be aware there is no parking available at the venue, but the office is a short walk from Hairmyres train station.

If you have any questions please contact margaret.duncan1@dwp.gov.uk

We are committed to ensuring that wherever possible our events are accessible to all participants. If you have any specific requirements that will enable you to fully participate, please let us know and we will endeavor to make any reasonable adjustments.
