First Year Support

The Civil Service Early Diversity Internship Programme (EDIP) is an opportunity for first-year undergraduates to experience the Civil Service during the Easter holidays.

As a successful applicant, you will have a 1-week placement at a government department, attend network sessions and skills workshops and will shadow a fast streamer as they work.

The EDIP is an ideal way to learn, in a short space of time, if a career in the Civil Service is for you. It’s also a good foundation for applying to the Summer Diversity Internship Programme (SDIP).

As an SEO candidate, we can provide you with support to ace your application and telephone interview, and provide access to Civil Service professionals and events.


Support for Penultimate Years

The Civil Service Summer Diversity Internship Programme (SDIP) gives talented students from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to see what a career in the Civil Service is like.

During a 6- to 9-week work placement in a government department, you’ll get an insight into the broad range of opportunities available across the Civil Service. By the end of the internship you should feel confident in your ability to apply for the Civil Service Fast Stream.

SDIP interns have the opportunity to get accelerated access to the Fast Stream.  The Fast Pass process enables SDIP interns to progress to the final stage of the Fast Stream selection process, the Assessment Centre, if they perform well during the internship.

As an SEO candidate you can participate in exclusive Civil Service events and receive a Civil Service mentor.  We can provide you with support to ace your application, online tests and telephone interview.
