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.

Drop-in sessions with CES advisors

The Careers and Employability Service are running a range of events this week – to be repeated in Weeks 28 and 30 – as part of their Don’t Panic! Bootcamp. These sessions are intended to make sure you are confident in a range of employability skills as you look ahead to the summer, whether you are graduating or coming back to Kent in September.

In addition to these bootcamp sessions, Helen Johnson, the Humanities Employability Advisor in CES, has set aside some time for bookable drop-in sessions with History students. Whether you would like advice on how and where to look for summer jobs, how to make the most of your skill set on your CV, or if you are considering applying for a graduate scheme next year, these sessions with Helen will be extremely useful.

If you would like some advice but can’t attend any of these times, or if they are all booked up, you can arrange a time to speak to a CES advisor by emailing
