Type of opportunity: 
Internship
Application deadline: 
23/10/2019

The multi-award winning Summer Diversity Internship Programme (SDIP) gives people from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to see what a career in the Civil Service is like. It puts talented undergraduates and graduates on a work placement in a government department. As a successful applicant, you’ll get an insight into the broad range of opportunities available across the Civil Service.

The SDIP is a great way to prepare for a place on one of our Fast Stream graduate programmes, which could lead to many different career paths at the heart of the UK Government. Two months on the SDIP could change your life!

You’ll also be invited to undertake Fast Pass, which is a quicker route to Fast Stream selection. The Fast Pass means if you receive a positive appraisal during the 2020 SDIP internship, and then apply for Fast Stream that year, you’ll be fast-tracked past the initial online selection stages. You’ll also have the option to defer your Fast Pass to the following year.  As part of the programme you will receive coaching to support. This gives you an excellent chance to succeed on the Fast Stream.

On the internship you’ll do challenging project-related work. You could be:

  • Conducting research.
  • Providing project support.
  • Assisting with the creation of policy documents.
  • Shadowing senior civil servants.
  • Attending meetings with senior advisors on major issues.

Eligibility: Undergraduates in their final two years, who are from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background, or who are disabled, or socially or economically disadvantaged .
