Outside work

The Government has a prior call at all times on the service of all its staff. A civil servant is required to apply for permission before taking up any paid outside work during or outside working hours, or unpaid outside work during working hours.

As a general rule, a civil servant may not take up any outside work which is liable to affect the performance of or give rise to a conflict of interest with his official duties.

To avoid any real or apparent conflict of interest, a civil servant retiring/retired from the Government is subject to relevant control regime on post-service outside work.
