Working in Government Insight Day on 13th November 2019

The Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) University Outreach Team cordially invites up to 10 students from your university to attend our ‘working in government’ insight day on 13th of November 2019, at 1 Victoria Street conference centre.

BEIS employs around 3,000 staff who work in our offices in London, Aberdeen and around the UK. BEIS is supported by over 40 agencies and public bodies including Companies House and the UK Space Agency. For more information about the department and the work we do, please click here.

Led by a budding group of young professional volunteers, the day will consist of six hours of ‘fun and interactive’ sessions leading students through what life is like as a Civil Servant in the department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

There will also be time for networking with recent graduates working at the department.

To register, we simply ask for 100 words from interested students detailing why they would be interested in attending the workshop, and a potential future career as a civil servant. A member of your university’s careers service can also attend, if interested. We will be in touch with successful applicants in due course.

We can only accept up to 10 students from your university to allow a wide variety of students to attend from across different London universities. However, further events will be put on in the future over the course of the academic year.

While not a recruitment day, and led solely by volunteers, attendees will learn more about the Civil Service and methods of obtaining employment in departments such as BEIS.

Fabian Womens Network MENTORING PROGRAMME

Applications for the next cohort (2019/20) are now open
Following the astounding success of the first eight years of the Fabian Women’s Network mentoring and political education programme, we are now recruiting our ninth cohort of aspiring women. If you are a woman looking to develop or further a career in politics or public life then this could be the scheme for you.

Taking part will enable you to develop your political skills and increase the impact and influence you can have on political and public life through mentoring from one of a number of highly influential women along with bespoke training and peer group support.

The scheme launched in 2011 on International Women’s Day and since then has gone from strength to strength. Nearly 200 women have now completed the scheme and each of the seven cohorts over ten months, has received mentoring as well as taking part in organised training and networking activities. The scheme includes time spent in Parliament in London, what will be the final trip to the European Parliament, a series of networking and other events and a residential weekend where mentees will take part in training and further development in the core skills required to be effective in public or parliamentary life.

The programme has already delivered some incredible results for its participants and the Fabian Women’s Network. Mentees have been selected or shortlisted as Parliamentary candidates, and as candidates for the London and Welsh Assembly with brilliant support from other mentees. Many others were shortlisted. 42 women have been elected into local government positions and subsequently promoted into cabinet positions, and a large number of women have gone on to become school governors and trustees on the boards of charities. Some have formed their own charities. The majority of mentees have gained promotion, been nominated for awards and written for or spoken in national media.

How to apply
From 24 May, the Fabian Women’s Network will be inviting applications for the next cohort of the mentoring scheme from Fabian women.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate a clear interest in politics and public life and a commitment to their own and others’ development in their application. The scheme will run from 9 September 2019 to June 2020. Applicants must be free to attend induction on 9 September 2019.

The deadline for applications to be a participant on the scheme is midnight 23 June 2019.

To apply for the ninth cohort of the FWN mentoring scheme, you must submit a completed Application Form 2019, a concise CV and a Diversity Monitoring form by email to FWNmentoring@fabians.org.uk

The deadline for applications to be a participant on the scheme is midnight 23 June 2019.
