Featuring BC Public Service
- April 11, 2021
What Is the BC Public Service?
Serve the public’s interest and keep their trust. The public service is a professional organization that supports the elected government. It is politically neutral and remains in place through elections. Public servants work for the public service. The public expects the highest standard of conduct from them.
What It Means to Be a Public Servant
Public servants regularly adapt policies and services to meet current needs. They’re resilient and strong – being responsive to public input and determined to maintain services even in the most challenging situations. 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.
It’s not just an office job.
