Here’s how I measure up… Competencies

This page shows I as a Public Relations practitioner measure up against the Civil Service/Gov.UK Competency frameworks.

Here I measure myself against the six levels of the competency framework for each ‘competency’ under the three clusters – Strategic, People & Performance.

You can read my profiles by select each competency from the list, the explanation for the governments competency framework (in PDF) is available via the ‘competencies’ link below (to the website) and via a backup PDF on this site.

Further to this, you can also find out how I measure up against the new ‘Success Profiles’.


  1. Strategic Cluster – Setting Direction
    1. Seeing the big picture
    2. Changing and improving
    3. Making effective decisions
  2. People Cluster – Engaging People
    1. Leading and communicating
    2. Collaborating & partnering
    3. Building capability for all
  3. Performance Cluster – Delivering Results
    1. Achieving commercial outcomes
    2. Delivering value for money
    3. Managing a quality service
    4. Delivering at pace

Competencies (Backup) are meant to have been phased out by 6th January 2019, as the Civil service moves onto Success Profiles.
