WHAT IS THE CIVIL SERVICE FAST STREAM?

The Civil Service Fast Stream Tests are used as a talent and management programme for graduates that show the signs of becoming leaders within the Civil Service. The Civil Service is highly demanding, and has a range of roles and job opportunities. The FAST STREAM way into gaining a job in the Civil Service is highly demanding and highly competitive.

In order for you to stand a chance at qualifying, you need to have a full understanding of what is expected when it comes to the tests which you will have to take. These tests are designed to test candidate’s abilities, skills, knowledge and experience, in particular, situations.

The Civil Service is a contemporary and diverse workplace that is committed to promoting and ensuring equality and fairness throughout the country. They act as part of the Government who instigate quality and diversity between the Government and the general public. They ensure that they are able to reflect and enhance the experiences of social, cultural and economical changes within society in order to provide a stable and secure system.

TYPES OF ROLES IN THE CIVIL SERVICE FAST STREAM

There are a variety of job roles that you can apply for within the Civil Service Fast Stream. Each job role requires different skills and knowledge, and so you should try to tailor your skills to a job that would be rightly suited to you.

Here is a list of some of the jobs you may wish to apply for within the Fast Stream Civil Service:

  • Generalist options = diplomatic services, houses of parliament, science and engineering, central departments
  • Analytical options = economist, statistician, operational researcher, social researcher
  • Commercial options = finance, internal audit, commercial
  • Government options = communications
  • Human Resources options
  • European options
  • Digital and Technology options

Each option may have slightly different assessments, but they will remain similar and test similar skills and abilities.

FAST STREAM TESTS

In order to become part of the Fast Stream area of the Civil Service, you will have to undergo a series of tests. All these tests will need to be passed in order to move on to the next stage of the application process, and you have a limited time to complete the whole application process.

The application process will consist of several online assessments, practice tests, e-tray exercises, assessment centres and a final selection board. This may sound like a lot of work. Truthfully, it is! You must be fully committed to these tests and understand the requirements needed to become a ‘Fast Streamer’.

Situational Judgement Questionnaire

This test will provide you with a variety of scenarios. Once you’ve read each scenario, you’ll need to answer a set of questions based on what you read. This test is not timed. For this test, you be given 15 different scenarios, each of which will contain 4 potential responses/outcomes. Your task is simply to judge the situation based on the information you have been provided with.

Behavioural Questionnaire

This test evaluates your behaviour in the workplace, strengths, areas for development, and other work-related skills. As with the Situational Judgement test, this questionnaire is not timed. Unlike other tests, which are testing your reasoning, the Behavioural Questionnaire is measuring how well you match the core competencies.

Analytical Fast Stream Assessment

Depending on what area of the Civil Service you are applying for, you may be asked to attend a half-day assessment in London, whereby your technical and analytical skills will be put to the test.

E-Tray Exercise

This exercise will test your ability to handle lots of data and information. The test is typical of the requests that you may be faced with in the life of a Fast Streamer. The test takes approximately two hours. The E-Tray exercise is broken down into
three sections:

  1. Reading and comprehending background information.
  2. Identifying the most and least effective responses to a number of emails.
  3. Writing responses to requests, using the information you have already been provided.

SITUATIONAL JUDGEMENT QUESTION 02

You have been working in a new team for 3 months now. When you started, your line manager put you on a 6-month development programme where you would be closely supervised for that period of time. You now feel very much ready to work
alone and the close supervision is starting to frustrate you and hinder your development. What would you do?

B. Tell your work colleagues how you feel and get their advice on what they think you should do.
C. Start working more on your own without telling anyone.

E-TRAY QUESTION 03

To: You

Subject: Acting Manager

—-,

Congratulations and thank you for taking on Andrew’s responsibilities as manager of the copywriting team while he’s away. We all appreciate that you have a lot on your plate with your own tasks, so we hope that the workload from managing the team won’t be too extreme.

As you know, Andrew likes to meet with each of his team members for a ten-to-fifteen minute catch-up once every two weeks. Andrew informed me on Friday that his last catch-up with the team was two weeks ago. Therefore, it would be great if you could get in touch with the rest of the team and find a time to meet with each of them. You’re probably well aware of what’s going on between everyone on the team, so hopefully a catch-up will be straight-forward. Please organise these for the end of the day.

In addition, I’d like you to take a look at some possible clients with projects that the team will be working on. I’ll send a brief report with each of the clients’ projects sometime later today, but if you could also decide on which (if any) of the clients to work with by the end of the day would also be excellent.

If you have any queries, or have any questions about your new role, don’t be afraid to get in touch.

Thanks,

Linda Peterson,

Managing Director

Task 1

Choose the most effective and least effective course of action:

  Most Effective Least Effective
 

Hold a group catch-up with the entire copywriting team to save time.

 

   
 

Email or chat to each of the copywriting team members to find a time which suits them.

 

   
Ask Andrea to send you a list of times which are likely to suit the copywriting team.    
Choose a time which suits you for each catch-up meeting.

ANSWERS

DATA INTERPRETATION QUESTION 01

A. 27.1

52 ÷ 192 × 100 = 27.08

Rounded up to 1 decimal place = 27.1

SITUATIONAL JUDGEMENT QUESTION 02

Most Effective
D. Arrange a meeting with your line manager to explain how you now feel ready to work more on your own, unsupervised. You would ask his permission for the supervision period to come to an end. This is Most Effective as you are discussing how you feel with the one person who really matters; your line manager. He can then make the decision whether or not to reduce the time period that you are supervised.

Least Effective
C. Start working more on your own without telling anyone. This is Least Effective. Your line manager would be extremely disappointed if you started working unsupervised, against his instructions. This could also lead to disciplinary procedures against you.

Really useful book to understand more about what to expect from the psychometric tests and e-tray exercises.

Very helpful.

I bought this book in the hope to get some kind of an idea on what my fast stream test will be like in February. After testing myself on the questions inside I was pleasantly surprised at how accurate and in depth the book is. The test questions really give you an idea on what to expect and the quality of writing is to a high standard.

How2Become.com-testimonial-02

Makes you feel much more prepared for your assessments and it gives you a brief summary of the assessment centres too. It also gives you access to online psychometric tests which are pretty much identical to what is in the book, but it gets you used to the online format which is helpful.

This book told us what to expect and helped my daughter to pass the online tests, she now has an interview and we have downloaded the interview guide which is also great.
