Generalist Leadership Development Programme

Job description

The award-winning Fast Stream is the leadership development programme that develops the highest potential graduates to become the future leaders of the Civil Service. 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.

The Generalist Fast Stream offers the opportunity to undertake a wide variety of roles to establish your strengths and leadership potential. You will undertake placements in different departments, from the Cabinet Office to the Department for Work and Pensions, among others across the country. You will also be exposed to roles in different government professions including corporate services, operational delivery and policy.

If you are successful, you will have the opportunity to express a preference for your placements to be in one of six career interest areas. If you’re not sure at this stage, don’t worry - you can also tell us you don’t have a particular preference.

Generalist Fast Streamers learn across broad interest areas and also have the opportunity to develop a deep knowledge of these areas.

Each role you take will require different skills to succeed, offering you the opportunity for continual learning with a real emphasis on leadership development. The minimum starting salary is £28,000. Promotion and successful completion of the scheme will see you earn around £45,000 to £55,000.

We support applicants with health conditions, learning difficulties and disabilities, with their applications and through their Civil Service careers. We operate a Guaranteed Interview Scheme. If you have a disability and meet the minimum qualifying criteria for your chosen scheme, you may choose to skip part of the first stage of the assessment process.

You can choose up to four scheme preferences when you apply to the Fast Stream. So, whether you are looking for your first graduate role, seeking to return to work, or change profession, the Fast Stream is the ideal place to progress a meaningful, fulfilling career.
