Gillian Smith, Head of the Civil Service Fast Stream, said:
This is the first year we’ve given candidates the opportunity to apply for so many Fast Stream schemes. Applicants have told us that they’re enjoying the increased choice of exciting career options, some of which they hadn’t previously considered.
The extended application window will give applicants extra time to make those choices.
Additional Fast Stream events, including university visits, lecture series and skills sessions, have been arranged. This will ensure we reach potential applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds, and will give people the opportunity to talk through their choices and hear about the experiences of fast streamers first hand.
