There are currently no plans to change paragraph 1.20 of the Civil Service Nationality Rules guidance in the unlikely scenario that the UK leaves the EU without a deal. EEA nationals who are civil servants on exit day will be able to continue to be civil servants; and it will continue to be possible for the civil service to recruit EEA nationals.
