New Perspective – Reshaping the civil service

By January 9, 2020 No Comments

Perspectives on Mogul News are a curated selection of stories from the world’s leading publishers, giving you more than one side of the story on important issues that face us, and society as a whole.

In this week’s Perspective, we look at plans to reshape the British civil service. Here’s a quick note from our editor to tell you more.

Dominic Cummings is one of Boris Johnson’s most influential advisors. His rise to prominence came as a result of masterminding the Leave campaign during the 2016 EU referendum. But his influence on the United Kingdom might not end there. In lengthy blog posts, he has outlined what he would do to change the British civil service.

The civil service is in charge of developing and implementing policies, under the direction of politicians. The higher rungs of it are dominated by Oxbridge educated generalists, armed with degrees in politics, history, economics and the like, but rarely in the sciences.

Mr Cummings aims to change that. Does the civil service need an update? Can Mr Cummings plans work? And what will a future British civil service look like?
