Graduate Opportunities with Civil Service Fast Stream
The Civil Service Fast Stream is a unique development opportunity for high potential graduates to become our future senior leaders. We offer a choice of 15 schemes across the UK.
On the Fast Stream, you’ll have the opportunity to contribute towards addressing some of the most pressing issues facing the UK today. With responsibility from day one, you’ll thrive in a supportive environment that offers long-term prospects.
You’ll progress your career path with your chosen government profession and benefit from a structured development programme. Support will be provided by a range of professionals whose priority is creating the right conditions for your growth and success.
You’ll rotate across different postings, experiencing different departments and roles. Many schemes also provide the opportunity to study for professional qualifications.
You’ll be immersed in a culture where people from all backgrounds influence decision-making, form friendships and support one another on their development journeys. With access to a range of Fast Stream networks, you’ll soon be enjoying a vibrant social life around work.
On every scheme, you’ll benefit from structured development, high-quality training and flexible working to ensure work-life balance. We’re changing along with British society, to better reflect the communities we serve and the Fast Stream community includes people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds. The Fast Stream has no upper age limit. Most of the schemes are open to graduates with 2:2, as well as first and 2.1 degrees.
We support applicants with health conditions, learning difficulties and disabilities, with their applications and through their Civil Service careers. We operate a Guaranteed Interview Scheme. If you have a disability and meet the minimum qualifying criteria for your chosen scheme, you may choose to skip part of the first stage of the assessment process.
So, whether you are looking for your first graduate role, seeking to return to work, or change profession, the Fast Stream is the ideal place to progress a meaningful, fulfilling career.
There is no typical Fast Streamer. And with postings available with several government departments, there is no typical role. It’s what you make it.
