Abstract


The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected all spheres of social-political life of the world community. As a result, there have been serious changes in the labour market, including the civil service. The labour market for civil servants is becoming increasingly complex, and new flexible technological solutions necessitate civil servants’ constant readiness for changes and lifelong learning. After all, the attribute of the new time is the quick-speed changes (we live in the mode “from slow to fast and faster”), both in terms of the amount of changes and in terms of the speed of their appearance. In such conditions, the civil service needs highly professional managers who are able to work to achieve expected results, apply European standards of public administration and develop effective public policy. Therefore, the purpose of the article is to substantiate the theoretical and methodological and applied aspects of personnel management in the civil service, taking into account the progressive innovative world human resources practices and features of administrative and legal regulation in this area. The authors proved the feasibility and identified the features of the formation of the talent management system as a leading modern trend in the field of personnel management in the civil service, examined the development of a talent management system in the civil service with an applied innovative tool such as e-learning in the conditions of modern challenges, and reviewed the positive international practice of talent management in the civil service (on the example of the USA, Germany, France, Great Britain, Singapore and Japan). On this basis, the main trends in the formation of the talent management system in the civil service of Ukraine are identified and the specifics of its administrative and legal regulation are analyzed.
