To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the email account firstname.lastname@example.org has been approved as an official means of recruiting staff to work as special advisers or civil servants; and what are the approved person specifications for the “super-talented weirdos” and “misfits with odd skills” who are invited to apply.
The blog invites people to get in touch to discuss opportunities. The blog post does not set out proposed recruitment processes.
Recruitment to the Civil Service is through fair and open competition following section 10 of the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act.
Special Adviser appointments are made by Ministers in accordance with section 15 of the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act.
