This is a challenging time for government. Growing demand on government services, as a result of the economic crisis, combined with the increasing pressures on public spending, are creating some challenging scenarios for Managers in this sector.
Meeting the objectives of the Gershon report is a reality for every arm of government; the scale of transformation seen in many departments is vast, whether supporting moves to Shared Service provision or adapting services to the reality of a new economic environment. It all places demands on existing management and creates a need for new skills and ways of working.
Equally this is a time of significant opportunity; a career in government is more attractive then ever before. The Cabinet Office drive to build professional expertise across the Civil Service has created opportunity for both Civil Servants looking to grow their own careers and professionals looking to work in government.
