The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is asking private, public and third sector organisations to host placements to help BIS gather feedback to inform future growth policy.
Key points/process of the outreach programme are:
• BIS staff will visit your organisation for one to two days to learn about how you operate, the challenges you face and your views on government policy.
• You can agree with the civil servant in advance about how you want the placement to run.
• The person will be from all levels, including team leaders, directors and director generals.
• You, in return, will have help with government-related issues you face and importantly a contact in central government should you face problems or need
advice in the future.
It could be an opportunity to use an additional expert resource - you can put the civil servant to use in your organisation wherever you see fit, and will also be an opportunity to discuss BIS’s policies with the people responsible for producing them
