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.

Being a Government Economist is not just about analysing data. As a Government Economic Service Fast Streamer (GES), you will be involved in important current issues, helping to shape government policy.

You'll have the chance to develop your expertise through postings in areas such as macro-economic modelling, competition policy, international financial issues, labour market trends, taxation, housing benefits, local government finance, public health and criminal justice. You’ll also develop as a leader to become an influential analyst at the heart of government.

The type of economics used will vary hugely and you could be working for a wide range of government departments or agencies, sometimes even overseas. There's also the option to join the Diplomatic Service as an Economist. Diplomatic Service.

Beyond the GES Fast Stream, wherever you find yourself working, you would be leading a team that puts economics at the heart of the policy-making process within years.

As the UK’s largest recruiter of economists, you won’t be alone. Join 1,400 professionals across government in more than 30 departments and agencies. The minimum starting salary is £28,000-£32,000. Promotion and successful completion of the scheme will see you earn around £45,000 to £55,000.

We actively encourage continuous professional development with the guideline for CPD of 100 hours per year (at least 50 hours of this must be spent on economics). Support includes:

- On-the-job coaching

- One-day induction course

- One-day course on economic appraisal

- One-day course on impact assessment

- A bespoke talent development programme at each stage of your career

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 4 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.
