"I would be very happy to endorse this campaign and I am determined that the Civil Service remains a positive and equal employer of military spouses. The Civil Service has a diverse workforce that delivers a wide range of functions across the UK and recruits through fair and open competition with appointments based on merit, ensuring equality of opportunity regardless of personal circumstances.
We have also recently written to all Departments asking them to do all they can to help existing Civil Servants who wish to return to their previous department at the end of their partner or spouse's posting. Each department has its own policies on recruitment and reinstatement which can be used to positively support these situations. In addition, departments have been asked to look at access to unpaid career breaks, which is an option in many departments, and which can allow an individual to maintatin continuity of service with an agreed return date."
