Heritage: ‘Moving, teaching, inspiring’ series

Posted on behalf of TORCH and the National Trust. Blogged by Hugh Nicholson-Lailey on June 23, 2017.

The Humanities Division at Oxford has developed an exciting relationship with the National Trust, culminating in the Trusted Source Knowledge Transfer Partnership. To celebrate this close collaboration, the TORCH/National Trust interdisciplinary lecture series explores and interrogates the many challenges and opportunities facing the higher education and heritage sectors in the 21st century, from caring for collections and landscapes, to gaining support through brand and marketing.

The lecture series offers a fantastic introduction to the strategic challenges and opportunities faced by the heritage sector and insights from the most senior levels into the strategies developed and implemented to achieve a sustainable, relevant and vibrant heritage sector that is reaching and engaging new audiences and influencing society and policy alike.

Videos of the first five lectures and Q&A discussions featuring leading speakers from both the National Trust and our University are now online on Oxford’s Podcast webpages.

Civil Service Fast Stream: Feedback please!

Blogged by Hugh Nicholson-Lailey on June 23, 2017.

The Civil Service Fast Stream has run a new selection process this year, and we’d be delighted to receive feedback from anyone who has been through the process – even if you were unsuccessful. Please take a few minutes to complete our online Interview Feedback Form to help those who follow. Your insights will appear anonymously on our searchable Interview Database.

In particular, it would be valuable to receive feedback on:

  • FSCA – the Fast Stream Assessment Centre and/or
  • additional assessments following FSAC for any of the specialist fast streams, such as finance, economics, operational research, technology …

When completing the Interview Feedback Form, the Name of Organisation’ field provides the search result, so it is helpful to include a date and descriptive title such as Civil Service 2017 Generalist FSAC, or Civil Service 2017 Legal Service.

Alternatively, if you’d like to offer feedback direct to a careers adviser or talk about your experiences, please email .

The Civil Service Fast Stream is a highly competitive application and many excellent candidates are not successful the first time. Many candidates are successful only at their 2nd, 3rd or 4th attempt, and there is nothing to stop you from re-applying next year with a completely ‘clean slate’.

If you were unsuccessful this year and would like to review any feedback or experiences from the selection process, you can talk confidentially with a Careers Adviser. During the long vac, we are happy to advise on the phone/Skype (book your meeting online through CareerConnect) and we also offer email advice daily via
