The Fast Stream is a great employer for LGB* people – and applications are now open.
Applications to the Civil Service Fast Stream are now open.
The Fast Stream aims to have the UK’s best and brightest graduates in Civil Service leadership roles within 3 to 5 year. It offers a wide range of supported learning and development, professional qualifications, formal training courses, mentoring and job-shadowing.
Importantly for LGB* civil servants, the Fast Stream values diversity. It’s just one way the Civil Service is becoming more reflective of the diversity in our country as a whole. It welcomes the best and brightest talent – regardless of background or circumstance.
You can read about the experience of two LGB&T Fast Streamers on GOV.UK.
There are different Fast Stream schemes to suit all tastes and talents, from commercial to digital. The Analytical streams closed on 30 September, but the Corporate streams remain open until 2 November 2015, so be sure to complete your application as soon as possible.
Applications are open to graduates with a 2:2 or higher in any specialism and existing civil servants. If you’re already part of the Civil Service, you can just apply – you don’t need a degree.
