Developing Civil Servants

Special Issue Call for Papers

Building, developing and retaining an impartial, informed and excellent civil service to work for parliaments is a major problem in many countries, particularly since austerity management was introduced following the global financial crisis.

This PMM theme, also the subject of this year’s PMM Live! in the House of Lords on 7 November, will present a collection of articles on the latest thinking on how to achieve transparency and fairness in government and to create a paid service that can really ‘speak truth to power’ but also one that is capable of managing major projects, commissioning services and demonstrating creativity and enterprise.

Articles can cover all aspects of civil service development, for example:

  • Recruitment
  • Retention
  • Training
  • Secondments
  • Appraisals
  • Career management
