EU and EEA citizens who are currently employed in the Civil Service, will continue to be able to work and play a full role in the Civil Service, as they do now, following the UK’s exit from the EU. This will also be the case in the unlikely event of a no deal scenario.

As with all UK employers, the Civil Service needs to ensure that future recruitment is compliant with immigration laws.
