Berwick Partners’ Government Practice provides experienced local and central government recruitment services with unusual levels of market insight. As the public sector continues to feel the effect of significant budget cuts and reduced Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR) settlements, our in-depth understanding of the key issues facing Whitehall and their Agencies – and how these challenges are changing the shape of senior civil service roles – is more important than ever.

Functional areas:

  • Finance
  • HR
  • IT
  • Communications
  • Operations
  • Policy

The Challenges

The evolutionary nature of the political and economic landscape means that Civil Servants are now required to demonstrate a new combination of skills – rarer and more complex than in the past. A government agenda that mixes deep cuts with major structural reform in almost every area of public service calls for experienced candidates with the vision, agility and leadership qualities needed to deliver policies and programmes in a changing environment.

Taking Central Government Recruitment Further

At Berwick Partners, we not only understand the complexities of your requirement but, unlike many of our competitors, we are able to leverage our networks across all UK economies; which enables us to deliver shortlists that go beyond the usual candidates.
