Sir Bob Kerslake says:

The Civil Service Awards provide an important occasion to recognise the outstanding successes of staff working across the Civil Service. They are also a great platform for highlighting good practice; showcasing innovation and celebrating excellence in public service.

Civil servants work across the UK and in many areas overseas, often in demanding environments. Through the awards we can recognise and thank staff for the significant contribution they make to this country, and I encourage you to put in your nominations today.
