Civil Service Fast Stream – Application and Assessment Centre Workshop

Civil Service Fast Stream: drop-in session
Monday 3rd December from 11.30 – 14.30
Keynes Seminar Room 4

Have you applied to the Civil Service Fast Stream? Are you currently going through the recruitment process? Or are you thinking of applying in the future, but have questions about their schemes or working for the Civil Service? 

Join Elliot and Sophie, current Fast Streamers, who will be on hand to answer any questions you may have regarding your application, the recruitment stages (including the assessment centre and final selection boards) and working for the Civil Service! They’ll be on campus on Monday 3rd December from 11.30am – 2.30pm, so drop by, no appointment needed! If you have any questions about the Fast Stream, come along and have a chat!

The Civil Service Fast Stream is an accelerated career path to leadership with supported development. They are a graduate employer that is consistently ranked in the top five of The Times Top 100.

The Civil Service is looking for graduates with the potential to progress to the most senior levels of the Civil Service and become our future leaders.  By ‘potential’ we mean graduates who have the motivation and ability to progress to the highest levels of our organisation. We are seeking the widest range of people, who can bring differing life experiences to their roles, enriching our organisation and helping us to better represent the whole of the society that we serve.  There is no typical Fast Streamer. We believe that people perform their best when they can be themselves at work.  We value who you are before you join the Fast Stream and ensure that through flexible working you will still have time for the things that matter the most to you outside work.
