Secondment opportunities 2019
If the answer is yes, come along to the GCSI International Opportunities Lunch and Learn, to hear about what we do and opportunities for a short secondment to develop new skills. There will be a chance to hear from staff who’ve been secondees in the team, as well as full time staff who will be on hand to answer questions about what roles are available.
The GCSI is made up of UK Government communicators, and supports HMG objectives overseas by seeking to strengthen communications capability in government and public institutions overseas. We have a number of rolling opportunities in 2019, lasting between three days to three months for government communicators at grades IO – Band A overseas.
The event starts at 12.30 on 29 November in G34, 1 Horse Guards Road, SW1A 2HQ. Please use the link to register to join this event whether in person or online via Google Hangouts.
*GCS members event, please ensure you bring valid UK Civil Service department or agency photo pass ID to ensure smooth access to this event.
