    Which one is easier to get into?
    Ideally I would love to work abroad and on Human rights issues, however, I am also interested in HR in central departments.

    Thanks for your time

    Yes it is, it needs a 2.2, all external Fast Stream recruitment requires a degree.

    Because HMG may well rank security or trade over human rights for certain countries for strategic reasons.

    The DWP scheme has evolved into a full 'Fast Stream' xgov offer from this year.

    The European Fast Stream is also back.

    No it doesn't, in relation to jobs, etc... it stands for Human Resources...

    Agreed, I recognise that, but I can't see him wanting to do either human rights work overseas or human resources in central departments? Could be wrong of course.

    Agreed that it is a rather odd combo, but then maybe they're just interested in people in particular?

    Post 4 suggests they actually meant HR... so stop speculating :P
