    I have been working at Cabinet Office full-time

    Pros

    The Faststream allows you to easily gain experience across a range of departments in short period of time. Good opportunities to build a cross government network and determine where you wise to specialise.

    Cons

    Quality of placements are questionable, some can be great, others can be terrible. You have little to no ability to move placements and although preferences are collected in terms of location and development needs, these seem to go out of the window during an opaque posting matching process. With this process despite being able to identify where you wish to specialise, you are unable to source placements that will allow you to hone these skills which is frustrating, especially considering the length (4 years) of the programme

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the users, Civil Service Resourcings stubbornness and inflexibility to change is driving talent out of the civil service. Retention figures highlight this and do not apply the generalist process to specialist schemes
