Civil Service Fast Stream: Hear from the experts!

Blogged by Hugh Nicholson-Lailey on May 16, 2018.

Oxford students and researchers have an outstanding track record of success in the Civil Service Fast Stream entry – one of the most competitive grad-scheme applications there is. Similarly, however, many fail less from a lack of potential or ability but more from being not fully prepared as they go into the process or misjudge one element of the selection process.

Next year’s Fast Stream recruitment is likely to open in September, and may well close before the end of 3rd Week in MT: (25th October 2018 is my best guess) – for full-time graduate entry and penultimate-year Summer Diversity Internships Programme (SDIP) and the 1st year (2nd of 4-year) Early Diversity Internship Programme (EDIP)!

The Panel:

Whether you are a finalist targeting a post-graduate application or a returning Oxford student next year, join our panel of current offer-holders for an informal exploration of their experiences, insights and recommendations for being at your best throughout the Fast Stream application process. Our panel will feature current Oxford students who have gone all the way to final selection in Fast Streams including:

  • Government Economic Fast Stream
  • Generalist
  • Foreign and Commonwealth Office
  • HR
  • Summer Diversity Internships Programme (SDIP)
  • HM Treasury Graduate programme
  • Social Research Fast Stream

When: 1:00-2:30pm, Wednesday 6 June

Where: Careers Service, 56 Banbury Road. No reservation needed.
