Are you aware of the Civil Service Diversity Internship Programme?
This programme is designed to give students from a minority ethnic background, those from a socially or economically disadvantaged background, and disabled students an idea of what it’s like to work in the Civil Service.
The Summer Diversity Internship Programme (SDIP) puts talented undergraduates and graduates, from diverse backgrounds, on a 6 to 9 week work placement in a government department. Some interns are offered a coaching programme to help improve their skills and move towards getting a place on the Civil Service Fast Stream.
The application window for the SDIP closes on 4th January 2016.
