civil service fast streamTwo reminders…….

For those interested in what is known as the Analytical Fast Stream (for economists, statisticians, social researchers  or analysts) Round 2 of applications will open on 16 Feb 2015 and close on 7 April 2015.

There are 2 diversity opportunities on offer (diversity here means being from an economically disadvantaged background or being a disabled person or ethnic minority) . I have written about these opportunities on the Careers Blog before at City, but again just want to promote them as a brilliant opportunity that would give you an edge with your applications for the Fast Stream in the future. I CANNOT RECOMMEND THESE OPPORTUNITIES ENOUGH.  Applications for the Early Diversity Internship Programme close on 17 Nov 2014 and applications for the Summer Diversity Internship Programmes close on the 5 Jan 2014.
