Britain needs leaders – people who are prepared to commit themselves to solving the big issues. Are you one of them? 

We need talented people to lead the future Civil Service. Whoever you are, whatever your background, the Fast Stream is the fastest route to real leadership.

Civil Service Fast Stream is hosting a presentation and Q&A session at Sheffield Hallam University on Wednesday 3rd April 12:30-2pm 

This is a unique opportunity to find out more about the award-winning Civil Service Fast Stream, ranked second in the ‘Times Top 100 Graduate Employers’ and achieved the ‘Times Public Sector Graduate Employer of Choice’ award each year since 2015! There are a wide range of roles and opportunities within services such as Finance, Diplomacy, Health, Science and Technology.

We’ll also be talking about the Summer Diversity Internship Programme (SDIP), a two month placement open to students in their final two years of university (including postgraduates) from diverse backgrounds. The SDIP is a great way to find out more about the Fast Stream and Civil Service, and gives you a fast track on to the Fast Stream. 

At this event you’ll meet current Fast Streamers, learn more about what it’s like to be a Civil Servant and have the opportunity to ask questions in the group or on a one to one basis. In the meantime, check out this blog for a taster of what life in the Civil Service is like.
