Civil Service Fast Stream - Government Economic ServiceWatch
I had a question about the Government Economic Service that I was hoping an existing Fast Streamer on this stream could answer for me.
What kind of work do you typically do on a daily basis? In terms of the data analysis involved- what level is expected of you before you join? Is everything taught to you upon joining? Also, how did you feel the jump was/ work load is if you joined straight after graduating?
I'm looking into the Department for Education for the Provisional Assistant Economist role but any insights from anyone on the GES Fast Stream in an Economist role would be great.
I'm particularly interested in knowing what kind of work you did straight when you started in the first few months, as opposed to what kind of work you are doing a year later.
Any views would be great! Thank you so so much in advance!
Can I just ask where you saw the job role for Provisional Assistant Economist? I can never find assistant economist roles on Civil Service job page.
I am an Economics undergraduate. I am thinking of doing masters because a lot of Economist roles look for masters.
