I am who
In 2017 we introduced the 'Fast Pass' initiative to those who attend the SDIP internship. If you receive a positive appraisal, 'Fast Pass' allows you to be fast-tracked through to the assessment stage of Fast Stream, bypassing earlier stages and increasing your chance of success.
Your work on the Fast Stream will have unique intellectual appeal, and bring you unrivalled career scope and variety. In an environment of integrity, honesty, objectivity and political impartiality, all you have to do is be yourself, show enthusiasm and enjoy.
When you apply to the Fast Stream it’s your skills, attitude and outlook that matter in the selection process. The Civil Service Competency Framework has more details about what is expected of civil servants.
We are committed to recruiting people from a range of different backgrounds, and our programmes have won multiple awards for diversity and inclusivity.
We’re changing along with British society to reflect the communities we serve. Our record of diversity and inclusion puts us head and shoulders above most organisations. We are proud of our award-winning diversity internships, EDIP and SDIP. We actively support those with additional requirements both during selection and in the workforce.
The Fast Stream scheme is recognised as one of the best graduate schemes in the country.
We were awarded The Times 2017 Graduate Recruitment Award for Public Sector Graduate Employer of Choice.
