Hi all,

Very simply which would you choose from the above and why....

I know someone who is finding it difficult to select one.

Thanks.

Difficult to give advice when you don't really know what is motivating the individual.

Major differences between the HM Treasury and Civil Service Fast Stream Finance programmes:

1) Finance Stream will be more about Finance management of government departments. HM Treasury grad programme is about forming national policy making and scoping out the financial impacts of that policy. So they are very different roles/skill sets required for each programme.

2) HM Treasury will only be based in London. Civil Service you could be based anywhere in the U.K. on your rotations

3) you will get an accountancy qualification with the Finance Fast-stream. There are no formal qualification with HMT, although will get broader skills development.


Not sure what you specifically mean by TSP, so can't comment on that.

Makes sense now.

They are actually three very different jobs requiring very different skill set and potentially taking your career path in very different directions.

If there isn't an issue with things like location or flexibility of where you can work, then I'd be looking at the typical grad responsibilities and working out what appeals most, as they will be very different. Also look carefully at the training/qualifications you will receive as this too will be very different for each programme.

Thanks again.

By the way for law TC's perserverance, resilliance and optimism are key.

Very best of luck on that front.

The competition for tcs is fierce so vac schemes depending upon circumstances are essential.

I'm not looking for a TC - I just used to recruit for them.

But agree entirely.
