The 21st Century Public Servant

A report by Dr Catherine Needham and Catherine Mangan with support from Helen Dickinson, Liz Haydon from the Public Service Academy and funding from the ESRC.
The 21st Century Public Servant …
….is a municipal entrepreneur, undertaking a wide range of roles
….engages with citizens in a way that expresses their shared humanity and
pooled expertise
….is recruited and rewarded for generic skills as well as technical expertise
…..builds a career which is fluid across sectors and services
….combines an ethos of publicness with an understanding of commerciality
…..is rethinking public services toenable them to survive an era of permaausterity
….needs organisations which are fluid and supportive rather than silo-ed and
controlling
….rejects heroic leadership in favour of distributed and collaborative models of
leading
….is rooted in a locality which frames a sense of loyalty and identity
….reflects on practice and learns from that of others
