The Civil Service Leadership Group is made up of Permanent Secretaries and Directors General from across the Civil Service. This group used to be called the Top 200.

The event takes place three times a year providing a platform for the effective sharing and development of knowledge, skills and experience at the highest levels of government.

The events are informal conversations hosted by Permanent Secretaries across government for Directors/SCS2. The purpose is to encourage communication and collective leadership across government. They are for Directors/SCS2 from outside the host’s department and offer the opportunity for Directors/SCS2 to meet and discuss cross-cutting Civil Service business.
