Civil Service to create future project leaders
Posted by APM on 4th Sep 2015
The new Project Delivery Fast Stream Graduate scheme within the Civil Service has launched to build strong project leadership skills.
There are a vast variety of projects that happen within the Civil Service from digital to infrastructure and defence, and individuals on the four year scheme will be taught a range of skills and methodologies to enable them to become future project leaders.
Individuals who are accepted on the scheme will work on six to 12 month rotations across the UK with roles that range from project support officer, to project data analyst and project manager.
Tony Meggs, interim chief executive at the Major Projects Authority said: “The Civil Service handles a huge variety of different projects.
“These range from infrastructure projects, such as delivering new roads, railways, schools and hospitals, through military equipment to digital transformation programmes that will permanently change the way people connect with government.
“The benefits these projects will bring to the country are enormous and the overall investment represents a real commitment to change.”
The scheme is open for applications until the 2 November 2015 with successful applicants starting the scheme in September 2016.
