However, please note that the scheme will close before the estimated closing date when 200 applications have been received, and this will be notified on the GES website. It is therefore in your interest to submit your application as soon as possible after the opening date. This year we do not require tutor references at the application stage, and will ask for these if you are invited to interview. Please note, we will not accept applications before 9am on 9 October.
How to apply
Please read the Application Process and Guidance (opens in a new window) before you apply. Then email your completed application form to firstname.lastname@example.org when the scheme opens. Please note: You will not receive an acknowledgement of your submitted application form.
Application form and job descriptions to follow before the scheme opens.
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 and completing the application form can be found in our Application Process and Guidance (opens in a new window).
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 2012. 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 about 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.
