Civil Service Careers in the North

Are you interested in applying for a placement or graduate role in the Civil Service and want to stay in the North? It is possible! 
At this event you will hear from Policy professionals, Economists and Researchers who all work in the Civil Service in the North. They will tell you about their profession, how they got to their position and how you can set yourself apart when applying for roles in the Civil Service. University of Sheffield students who have completed a placement in the Civil Service in Sheffield will also be at the event to share their experiences with you and answer any questions you have. 
You may be surprised by the range of exciting careers in the Civil Service and this event will give you an insight in to what that could mean for you. Book a place at the event here!
We are pleased to announce that we have secured 10 paid Policy Summer Internships at the Civil Service in Sheffield and they are open to second year Politics students! These opportunities will launch at the panel event and the speakers will be recruiters - this is your chance to find out how to impress on your application form and secure one of these high profile internships. 
A previous Policy Intern said: "I knew that after graduating I want to work in either the public or third sector and when considering different avenues prior to the placement, I was interested in learning more about the civil service. In part, this was because the link between the work carried out in the offices and helping those in society was not immediately clear to me. By the end of my time at DWP, I was aware of not only the huge impact policy work can have but the opportunities it presents a civil servant to improve the lives of others"
