Civil Service Fast Stream Offer-holders panel: June 2018

Blogged by James Salas on July 13, 2018.

In 6th week Trinity Term, the Careers Service invited five Finalist who all held offers for the UK Civil Service (3x Fast Streamers; +1 Direct entry; +1 HMT Graduate programme) to talk about their experiences in the application and interview process, including their attendance of numerous assessment centres:

  • Fast Stream Assessment Centre (everyone does this one);
  • Economics FS;
  • Social Researchers FS;
  • FCO Diplomatic FS;
  • HMT graduate programme.

The Careers Service has a comprehensive written account of this presentation that is available to current students through the Careers Service’s Interview Database.

If you are considering an application for the civil service this autumn, expect positions to open from mid-August or early September, and to close in the 3rd week of October. Last year, all Fast Stream programmes, including the early and summer diversity internship programmes had the same early application deadline.

If you are well prepared, you should be able to navigate the early stages before term starts, which will mean you have ample time to prepare for each new phase. You can use the account of our offer-holders panel together with our Government and Public Sector briefing paper to get your bearings and make a start with your preparations. And remember, support from the Careers Service is available throughout the summer, wherever you are.

*Alumni cannot access our interview database. Any recent alumni considering applications to the Civil Service can request their own copy of the panel session by writing to with details of their College, Oxford Degree course and their year of completion.
