GES Sandwich Student Placement Scheme
SANDWICH STUDENT PLACEMENTS 2015-16
The timetable for the centrally run GES sandwich student placement scheme 2015-16 will be confirmed in due course.
To be eligible applicants must be studying for a degree in economics or a joint degree where economics comprises at least 50% of the total course. They must also be on course for a 2:1 or 1st class degree. More information on the eligibility criteria can be found in our Application Guidance Notes.
How to Apply
Please read the Application Guidance Notescarefully before you apply.
The application form will be available in Word format, including details of participating Departments and salary scales, in late September. The opening date of the scheme will also be published then.
Email your completed application form to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as the scheme opens. Please note that the scheme will close as soon as sufficient applications have been received, so it is in your interest to submit your application as soon as possible after the opening date. Once we have received sufficient applications, we will update the website to say that the scheme is closed.
Candidates who are successful at the sift stage are advised that they will not always receive their highest preference of Department. Occasionally, a Department might withdraw from the scheme before placements are offered. In such cases, candidates allocated to that department will be placed in a reserve pool.
Candidates who are successful at the sift stage will be invited for interview at one of the participating Departments. Interviews are likely to take place in November/December 2014 and are done on a face-to-face basis. Sample interview questions are provided on the Interview Examples page.
The Civil Service is an Equal Opportunities employer. Candidates with disabilities (as defined in the 1995 Disability Discrimination Act) can choose to declare on their application form that they require adjustments at interview, for which we can make a range of provisions. Please contact us should you have any questions regarding this – we would be happy to help.
We are interested in your skills and aptitudes. We have no preferences for particular backgrounds or universities. We want to reflect the diversity of the country we serve.
