Joining the Fast Stream offers the unique opportunity to make a difference to the whole of society. The Civil Service supports the government of the day to implement its policies effectively. Fast Streamers help to shape the decisions that will affect everyone’s lives and to deliver the public services that we all rely on.

As a Digital, Data and Technology Fast Streamer you will work with experts to design, build and run services which are used by millions of people every day. Services such as register to vote, apply for a driving licence or apply for a UK passport.

You will make government services easy to use and relevant to the evolving needs of our users. This is your chance to be involved in some of the most innovative e-government projects in the world.

The minimum starting salary is £28,000. Promotion and successful completion of the scheme will see you earn around £45,000 to £55,000 in your first role after the Fast Stream.

As a Fast Streamer you will get a blend of specialist learning and development (L&D) activities covering technical and leadership training including:

  • agile working
  • data analysis
