Civil Service competency framework

The Civil Service competency framework is the core competency framework that sets out the required behaviours all civil servants need to demonstrate. The framework is used for managing performance, recruitment and promotion.

Take a look at the Civil Service competency framework webpage for links to self-assessment and feedback tools to identify your strengths and areas for development when measured against the core competency framework.
