Come along to a friendly session where you can learn all about the UK Civil Service’s graduate recruitment scheme: the different options, the assessment process, and just what a civil servant does, anyway. (Everything. (Mostly not all at once.))
Scottish-based Fast Streamers will talk about their work in areas such as DWP, DfID and the Scottish Government, discuss the experience of being on different “streams”, including generalists (policy), economists, and EU specialists, and give you an inside story on the highs and lows of being on this competitive, intensive programme. There will also be a Q&A to answer all your questions.
The next recruitment round for the UK Government’s Faststream graduate scheme will be open from September to November 2012. The events are:
