Civil Servant



How to Be a Civil Servant

For new recruits to the Civil Service - and indeed for many already working within it - the do's and dont's of being a civil servant are not always readily understood. In How to be a Civil Servant, Martin Stanley -formerly a senior official in the Cabinet Office and now Chief Executive of the Postal Services Commission, provides comprehensive advice on how to deploy professional skills, handle ministers, prepare policy papers and oral presentations, and a wide range of other duties.

"This is the first book about the British Civil Service ever published by a serving Civil Servant.

The Civil Service is a profession, just like any other, although it is seldom recognised as such by the public. And the Modernising Government initiative is rightly leading to increasing interchange with the private sector. Newcomers - as well as their more exerienced colleagues -therefore need access to the store of knowledge which is one of the corner-stones of the profession.

The book and its companion web site accordingly provide up to the minute advice about how Civil Servants should most effectively carry out their professional duties, and how they should respond to unfamiliar professional, ethical and scientific etc. issues. In particular, they explore:

- the way in which Civil Servants work,

- Civil Servants' relationship with Ministers,

- the constraints within which Civil Servants must operate, and

- the way in which Civil Servants are managed.

The book is therfore required reading for newly appointed Civil Servants as well as for students, academics, journalists, politicians and others interested in British Government."

Selection Tests


How to Pass Selection Tests

Many practice questions and specimen papers are provided here, enabling job applicants to put in plenty of practice in advance of the real test date.

The book also explains how the recruitment selection tests now conducted by many large employers (including the Civil Service in particular) work and looks at a variety of techniques designed to improve test scores.

Statistics say up to 12 hour's practice will improve a candidate's score by an average of 16 per cent; alternatively, since records prove that there are many absentees from any test interview, the chances of success may also be increased by simply turning up.
