About this webinar  

The clock is ticking towards a general election in the next year, and with many polls pointing to a victory for the Labour Party, the coming 12 months are likely to bring big changes.  What are the implications of a change of governing party for the working lives of officials? 

Watch on-demand and hear Kavian Brown, Partner and expert in Government and Public Sector at Baringa, Jonathan Slater, Former DfE Permanent Secretary, discuss with Alex Thomas, Programme Director at the Institute for Government, alongside CSW co-editors Suzannah Brecknell and Jessica Bowie. 

Here is what we covered: 

  • What could different election results, such as a coalition or a hung parliament, mean for the civil service? 
  • If Labour win an overall majority, where might we expect to see most of the significant changes in government policies and priorities?
  • How can the civil service best get the balance right between building trust with new Ministers and offering objective advice and sharing institutional memory?
  • How can the Civil Service take advantage of this moment of reform how it closes the execution gap between policy intent and operational delivery?
