Civil Service have designed two internships to give ethnic minority students, and those from under-represented socio-economic and disability groups, a taste of life in the Fast Stream:
First year Undergraduates
The Early Diversity Internship Programme (EDIP) is a one-week Spring expenses-paid placement for first year undergraduates. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to attend network sessions and skills workshops, as well as shadow a Fast Stream participant. It provides students with an introduction to the Civil Service, to discover whether or not this is a possible career path for them to follow.
Deadline for application: 17th November 2014
Penultimate and final year Undergraduates
The Summer Diversity Internship Programme (SDIP) is a six to nine week paid placement for undergraduates and graduates. Successful applicants will take part in various project-related work, such as conducting research, supporting projects and attending critical meetings with senior advisors on major issues, as well as gaining an invaluable insight into the broad range of opportunities the Civil Service has to offer.
Deadline for application: 5th January 2015
