Civil Service Fast Stream
We hosted 100 interns at our opening reception for our Early Diversity Internship programme. The programme gives first-year undergraduates from under-represented backgrounds a sense of what being a Civil Servant is like.
Interns from universities across the UK are on a 1 week placement in various government departments. Theyll get the chance to attend networking sessions and skills workshops, as well as the opportunity to shadow a Fast Streamer as they work. The aim of the week-long internship is to provide awareness of the Civil Service and to prepare them for our Summer Diversity Internship programme. Its also a great foundation for applying to our Fast Stream graduate programme.
The event provided our successful interns with the opportunity to hear from existing graduates and inspirational high profile figures such as the Civil Service Diversity Champion and the Permanent Under Secretary for the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.
