Industry placements in the Civil Service
The Civil Service is an exciting place for young people to build their careers and this could start with a T Level industry placement. An industry placement in the Civil Service provides students with a valuable opportunity to experience a Government Department or Arm’s Length Body and further explore a Civil Service career.
The Civil Service is increasing the number of placements available for AY 22/23 (and beyond) across Digital, Finance, Accounting and Management and Administration T Levels in a variety of locations. Available placements are dependent on the type of work being carried out at any given time, the location of the team and availability of dedicated mentors/placement managers.
If interested, please contact the central team in Cabinet Office who are leading on coordinating placements to see what opportunities may be available: email@example.com.
