As every seasoned public affairs professional knows, if Parliamentarians are the public faces of power, Civil Servants occupy an infinitely more subtle and complex position within the apparatus of the state.
The gatekeepers of the policy agenda, their influence extends into all areas of society, shaping the terms on which issues are debated and the range of possible options presented to decisionmakers.
But the workings of Whitehall can be agonisingly obscure, and identifying the right public sector names can be a time-consuming, difficult task.
At DeHavilland, we understand the importance of engaging with the right policy stakeholders at the right moment - and that includes reaching out to key Civil Service contacts.
That's why we have developed DeHavilland Civil Service, a unique tool to take your public affairs practice further.
Get in touch directly with the public sector leaders who matter. Search more than 25,000 Civil Service contacts by role, from permanent secretaries to department heads, or browse over 600 departments, agencies and public bodies, covering Westminster, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Craft your communications directly using our industry-leading contact tools. Our website lets you compose and send messages to individuals and groups with ease, then record your activities with personal notes.
Sort and store your contacts for later with our handy listing function. This built-in feature saves time and helps you take a more strategic approach by enabling you to creating custom directories of relevant decisionmakers.
