High Impact Careers in Government

We help civil servants do the most good they can, in government and beyond.

Our mission

In government it’s often easy to think that the real power lies elsewhere.

But every civil servant has huge potential to change the country – and the world – for the better.

Each one of us can help save lives, create jobs, and ensure a fairer, safer and more prosperous country for us all.

HIPE’s mission is to help you fulfil your potential as a civil servant, and do the most good you can with your career.

What we do

HIPE helps civil servants have the biggest social impact they can. We can help you:

    1. Identify roles and opportunities where you can have the biggest social impact, based on your own values.
    2. Build your skills to ensure you do the most good possible, and are ready when the big opportunities come knocking.
    3. Connect with inspiring, like-minded and motivated civil servants.

We are friendly, impartial and underpinned by the latest careers research.
We don’t have all the answers, but we’re here to help.

Our Services

By the end of one of our workshops you will have a clear idea of the next steps you need to take to progress your career and a framework for thinking through career decisions.
We are also trialling a range of events to support civil servants with their career choices, including inviting some of the most exciting and interesting speakers from across Government to talk about their experiences and their careers.

HIPE offers one-to-one career support sessions for civil servants who want to have an impact over the course of their career.

Please fill out the coaching request form here. We will then contact you to organise a time.

We believe that all the advice we give should be underpinned by the latest research. We look to academic research in the fields of careers and policy making. We also conduct our own research by interviewing civil servants from across the UK Government. We have developed an online careers tool. The tool can help you search for jobs by topic area and understand how frequently different jobs come up across government.
