Jargon in job adverts A civil servant asked: This does not seem to be in the spirit of fair competition. Writing in plain English should be a Comparative analysis adverts when these adverts are drawn up.
With the Civil Service moving towards a new performance management system for all Departments from 1 April, can consideration be given to job adverts reflecting the objective competencies and behaviours of this system as well? Thank you for your question. I think the point that you make about the use of jargon in adverts and job specifications is a good one.
If the MOD, or any other Department, is looking to recruit staff they may miss out on some really talented candidates if if their communication is not clear.
When a senior Civil Service job is opened up to external candidates I, or one of my fellow Commissioners, will chair the selection panel.
At senior levels adverts are usually aimed at a wider audience and I find they are usually clear. But perhaps with less senior posts, the same amount of time is not taken to ensure they are intelligible to those outside the Department.
I agree that as the Civil Service has adopted a new performance management system, the new competencies should be reflected in recruitment advertising. The Commission has a regular liaison meeting with HR Directors from some of the major Departments and I will make sure that this point is passed on to them.
Thank you again for your question. Will the Commission undertake to review the working of the Civil Service Code in the development of rules and regulations of technical matters and issue guidance as to how we engage with industry without undermining the core values of the Code? It would also be helpful to obtain examples of good practice drawn from across the world which could answer the following questions: What the Code says is those dealings must be carried out with integrity, honesty, objectivity and impartiality.
In other words, civil servants must look at the evidence objectively, take decisions on the merits of the case and advise Ministers honestly and truthfully.
That is the job of the Cabinet Office with responsibility for Civil Service reform. They have commissioned some work from IPPR on lessons from other systems, which I assume, will be published.
And you may have seen the interesting recent announcement about setting up some evidence-based policy centres, which is very much about improving the analysis and research underpinning policy development. You can find details on the Cabinet Office website in a press release on 4 March.The Essentials of Studying Statistics - The Essentials of Studying Statistics Introduction Making effective business decisions are always based on cost, time and prospect.
