Government Statistical

We recruit the brightest and best graduates into the Civil Service and give them the skills, knowledge and experience they need to become effective and inspiring leaders at the heart of the political process.

Civil servants working across government are responsible for advising on every aspect of how the country is run. As statisticians we use our expertise to collect, analyse and present the numbers. Increasingly we are using data science skills to tackle big data from new sources, to make our advice even more relevant and timely. 

The Statistics Fast Stream is an exciting graduate development programme. Over 4 years you’ll gain the experience and skills that will put you on a path to senior leadership roles across the Civil Service. You’ll move department every 12 months or so in order to build a breadth of statistical knowledge and experience.

The Statistics Fast Stream offers you a variety of challenging analytical placements across a range of government departments and two secondments – to experience working life outside government and outside analysis. 

If you successfully complete the scheme and are promoted, you could earn c. £45k-£55k. Other benefits include the Civil Service pension scheme, professional qualifications, flexible working, season ticket loans, sports and social activities, childcare assistance and more.
