The Capability Framework Overview

The capability framework supports the Civil and Public Service in building the workforce of the future. Our ambition is to attract, empower and develop a diversity of people, with the capability and talent to collaboratively deliver excellence, on behalf of our Government and the people of Ireland.

Exploring and strengthening Capability requires us to consider the whole person, their behaviours, skills, strengths, knowledge, values, motivation and interests. These factors underpin our approach to recruitment and development as we continue to build an innovative, professional, and agile Civil Service.

Through extensive research, we have determined the capability dimensions needed to build our future workforce. The capability framework for key grades in the Civil Service are linked below.
