- About us
Each year the Government Economic Service (GES) offers opportunities for students to work in HM Treasury during the summer holiday period or alternatively as a sandwich student for 12-14months. As a student you would provide support to policy analysts or other special projects.
The GES recruits students who are currently studying for a degree in economics or, if it is a joint degree, must comprise at least 50% economics. Candidates must be IT literate and keen to experience working life in a government department.
Each year approximately 25-30 students are offered sandwich student placements. The closing date for sandwich students is usually in October each year for placements starting the following summer.
Summer student placements, lasting 6-12 weeks, are usually advertised in January each year.
