Jeremy Heywood’s sad death at the age of just 56 left a hole in the leadership of the civil service, and led to an outpouring of tributes from across the political spectrum for, to quote just one of them, “the most brilliant civil servant of his generation”.

In the latest edition of Civil Service World, Jeremy’s widow Suzanne Heywood provides a personal insight into what made the former cabinet secretary tick, how he thought about policy challenges, and his reaction to Brexit.

The edition also includes features on:

  • The relationship between ministers and officials from two people who lived it
  • A look at how other countries have responded to the coronavirus pandemic 
  • What the closure of the government’s performance platform means for transparency
