What It Means to Be a Public Servant
Public servants work for government and for citizens. We develop and deliver public programs or services, inform policy-making, and provide evidence-based advice to leaders.
A career in the public service is for anyone who wants to make a difference. It means putting public interests first – ahead of personal interests. Many public servants say they chose public service because they enjoy giving back to their community.

The People Who Work Here
The BC Public Service has about 35,000 public servants working in 200 different types of jobs across 280 communities. We provide services, programs and policy expertise in areas like health care, public safety, education, and environmental management.

Diversity, Inclusion and Respect
The BC Public Service is as diverse as the people it serves. The people who work here represent everyone in B.C. This includes minority communities, immigrants, persons with disabilities, Indigenous people, and the LGBTQ2+ community. Unique styles, perspectives, beliefs and creativity support building a respectful, inclusive and diverse workplace. Everyone is invited to apply to work here.
