The Civil Service uses four key values to assess candidates:

  • Integrity = the ability to put obligations of the public service above personal interests and/or beliefs.
  • Honesty = being able to demonstrate high levels of truthfulness and openness.
  • Objectivity = being able to display objective views and opinions on certain areas. Basing decisions and policies on rigorous analysis and evidence to form a plausible and valid outcome.
  • Impartiality = being able to serve the power of the Government in charge and meet the needs and merits in which they enforce.

They primarily provide a service directed to all the people across the country in order to support and assist issues such as:

  • Paying benefits
  • Healthcare
  • Providing pension schemes
  • Operating effective prison systems
  • Issuing driving licenses and a range of other important development policies

The Civil Service are impartial and objective people regarding political movements. The service that they provide does not reflect a certain political party. It merely demonstrates a non-political stance that is used to effectively maintain and enhance community procedures and policies. In other words, even if the leading Government and political party changes; this has no effect on the Civil Service. The Civil Service remains unaffected and serves the Government in power.
