The Civil Service Fast Stream is a Talent Management programme for graduates who have the potential to become the future leaders of the Civil Service. It is ranked among the top five Times Top 100 Graduate Employers.
One of the reasons for the Fast Stream’s popularity is that it enables graduates to have real impact on life in the UK and, often, the wider world. As a Fast Streamer you will:
- Bring innovative solutions to some of the biggest issues facing society today
- Work at the heart of current affairs and key government agendas
- Engage directly with the public, helping to provide high-quality services for people from diverse communities and backgrounds
The Fast Stream also allows you to amass a wide range of experience in a very short space of time. Fast Streamers begin their careers with a series of placements or postings. These are different jobs within your department, each of which will last around 12 or 18 months. Postings give you the chance to move between projects and areas of work and gain experience in different career groupings.
Many departments also offer secondment opportunities, which you’ll be actively encouraged to take. So you may spend time working in another government department, the wider public sector, Europe or, even, business or industry.
