The Fast Track is a two-year Level 4 apprenticeship which lets you earn a competitive salary while gaining the skills and experience needed for a successful career in the Civil Service.

The Civil Service helps the government of the day develop and carry out its policies and provide services which help people across the country.

Civil servants work on things you don’t get to do anywhere else, from education, health and public safety to border control and cyber security.

As a civil servant, you could work on:


  • shaping healthcare so that people can live better for longer
  • making sure the UK has secure, clean, affordable energy
  • leading global work to end poverty and support communities hit by humanitarian emergencies

There’s no such thing as a typical civil servant – we work in just about every town and city in Britain, and we come from every background you can think of.
