We are pleased to announce our scheduled second round application window for the Government Economics Service, Government Operational Research Service and the Government Statistical Service opens 1 February 2016.

Far from your average graduate scheme, the Fast Stream programme offers talented and ambitious graduates an accelerated route to leadership within the Civil Service. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to take on some of the biggest social, economic, political and security challenges facing the UK today and the chance to make a real difference in peoples lives.

Sir Jeremy Heywood, Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Civil Service said:

the Fast Stream is widely recognized as one of the best graduate schemes in the country, ranked fifth in the Times Top 100 Graduate Employers in 2014-2015.

See Sir Jeremys blog post on what Fast Stream graduates could achieve.

The Fast Stream aims to have the UKs best and brightest graduates in Civil Service leadership roles within 3 to 5 years and offers a wide range of supported learning and development, professional qualifications, formal training courses, mentoring and job-shadowing.
