THE UK’s top civil servant has announced he will be stepping down from his role.
Sir Mark Sedwell announced today he will end his duties as Cabinet Secretary, National Security Adviser and head of the Civil Service in September.
Sir Mark said it had been “a privilege to serve” as he announced he will stand down from his role as Cabinet Secretary, National Security Adviser and Head of the Civil Service in September, after over 30 years in Government service.
“I am fortunate to have served in some of the most challenging and rewarding jobs in national and international public service under seven prime ministers and in extraordinary times,” he said.
Boris Johnson has nominated Sir Mark for a life peerage, and has also asked him to lead a new G7 panel on Global Economic Security as the UK assumes the presidency with a mission to ensure that “the global free trading system on which our economy is based remains fair, competitive and secure”.
