We work in a wide range of areas that touch on everyone's day-to-day lives, such as education, health and policing.Because our organisations deal with so many different aspects of government, civil servants work in an enormous variety of roles. We employ 498,000 civil servants, almost three-quarters of whom work outside London and the South-East.Civil servants are politically impartial. Our workforce includes people who deliver crucial services direct to the public across the UK, such as Jobcentre Plus staff and coastguards. We also have staff working on policy development and implementation, including analysts, project managers, lawyers and economists.
