Civil Service  
Gives an overview of what the civil service does and the extensive career opportunities. The Civil Service helps the Government of the day to develop and deliver its policies as effectively as possible. The Civil Service incorporates three types of organisations – departments, agencies, and non-departmental government bodies (NDPBs). We work in a wide range of areas that touch on everyone’s day-to-day lives, such as education, health and policing. Because our organisations deal with so many different aspects of government, civil servants work in an enormous variety of roles. We employ 492,000 civil servants, almost three-quarters of whom work outside London and the South-East.

United Nations Careers

The issues on our agenda are manifold and diverse as are the careers we offer. Among our ranks you will find staff members who monitor elections, disarm child soldiers, coordinate relief in humanitarian crises and provide administrative as well as logistical support to carry out our complex mandates. These are just a few examples amongst our many other equally critical and necessary functions.
