Civil Service Fast Stream – info session

3:00 – 4:00pm

Michael Sadler LG15

What does a Civil Servant do, and how do they affect people’s lives? Do you think the Civil Service is just the background staff of Number 10? Think again! The Civil Service has so many different opportunities, and this is your chance to speak to current Civil Service Fast Streamers about what they do, and how you can be a part of the largest organisation in the UK.

All welcome, no need to book!
