    If you're recruited in the Civil Service on a "2 year contract (with a possibility of permanency)" at an EO level, is it possible to get promoted to HEO level before the end of the 2 years? Or must you wait till you complete the 2 years at EO level and then take further steps to try to get to the HEO level? Thank you !!
    I would also like to know this.

    If you have been recruited through a "fair and open competition" on a fixed term contract you will usually be entitled to apply for relevant vacancies on promotion in the same way as any "permanent" civil service colleague. If the new post is a permanent position you then become a permanent civil servant. The normal caveat is that your new post must commence before the end of your existing fixed term.

    Of course, there may be exceptions to this rule and you should seek clarification from your HR contact if you are concerned, however in my experience to date this has invariably been the case.

    I recently started employment at the Cabinet Office on a HEO/SEO rank; coming straight from my postgraduate course. A lot of people here are saying it is rare to start at that grade, but it is certainly possible. The only relevant work experience I had was a six month policy research internship at the House of Lords.
    I spent around three months applying, and attended three interviews for different positions. Ironically, I was hired for the most senior position out of all those I was interviewed for.

    assume 3-4 months prior for direct entry.

    Assuming you get the first one you apply for.
