Prospect is an independent union of 118,000 members including 34,000 professionals, managers and specialists employed in the Civil Service across departments, agencies and non-departmental public bodies.
Our mission is to promote and protect the interests of professionals at work.
Many of our members are expert practitioners in areas as diverse as animal and tree diseases, engineering systems, life sciences, accident investigation and insolvency. Others are employed in functions ranging from health and safety regulation, support for vulnerable adults, environmental stewardship and policy advice. It is our genuine belief that while civil service specialists rarely have a high profile, except in times of national crisis, they are indispensable to modern government and should play a much bigger role in a reformed civil service.
Prospect is affiliated to the TUC but politically independent.
