Civil Service: Behaviours

This session will introduce you to the Civil Service Success Profiles Framework which has defined a set of nine core behaviours that, when demonstrated, are associated with job success. These are behaviours that candidates, and Civil Service employees, are continuously assessed against at different stages of their application or career. They are specific to the grade level of the job role and there is no expectation that all individuals will need to demonstrate every part of each example to be successful. Come to this session to develop your understanding of the Civil Service Success Profile Framework so you can begin preparing your own examples for each behaviour.
