Success Profiles

Success Profiles are the new recruitment framework used within the Civil Service.


Success Profiles: Overview

Success Profiles: Experience

Success Profiles: Technical


Success Profiles will enable a fairer and more inclusive method of recruitment by enabling us to assess the range of experiences, abilities, strengths, behaviours and technical/professional skills required for different roles. This flexible approach to recruitment focuses more on finding the right candidate for the specific role. You can find out more about Success Profiles in the documents on this page.

There will be a transitional period during which Success Profiles will run alongside the existing Civil Service Competency Framework. Please check the details in the job description of vacancies that you are applying for to see if the post is using Success Profiles or the Civil Service Competency Framework.
