Following the final leg of Civil Service Live, the flagship event for Civil Servants, we wanted to say that it was a pleasure meeting you all.
Our first touch was in St James Park (the home of Newcastle United and host to the Rugby World Cup 2015), followed by Manchester Central, where we demonstrated at sold-out sessions the type of learning available under the profession. This was followed by stands at Colston Hall (Bristol’s Home of music) and another great sporting venue Murrayfield Stadium (the home of Scottish Rugby). The final leg was London at Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre (which is situated in the shadow of Westminster Abbey and Big Ben) with Jonathan Lloyd White talking about the various roles in Security. Helping the Security Profession to lift the silverware by promoting the profession far and wide was the training provider QA who sponsored the Security Profession stand over the UK.
However, this is a game of two halves. By learning about how the security profession can help you, you’re half way there to getting the ball in the back of the net. The next action is to plan your continuous professional development by using your five days a year to nurture your security knowledge and skills –whether that’s through:
- training courses (for instance those signposted on CSL)
- reading expert advice from CESG and CPNI
- shadowing an existing security professional
- applying the principles of security at work or at home - making sure that security breaches aren’t a result of an own goal!
To discover the security roles available in the Civil Service go to Civil Service Jobs and filter by role.
