Civil Service Fast Stream SDIP 2020/2021Watch
Hi everyone,I went through the SDIP application process last year. My internship, that was supposed to take place this summer with the MoD, was cancelled due to COVID-19. As I had graduated, the Civil Service put me on a reserve list. They would periodically send me vacancies which I could apply for (these were not widely advertised). Off the back of this, I've recently been offered a fixed-term EO position with another department, which I have accepted. This will replace my internship that was due to take place next summer. Happy to answer any questions anyone may have about the process.
I am a deferred SDIP candidate on reserve list. Got an email in mid-February saying they have started allocations in to departments. But I have not heard or offered anything yet...
Do I need to write to them and push a bit so they can offer me something?? Do they just offer you the position or do you have to write and ask ??
Appreciate if you respond to me
The confirmation email asks you to upload ID documents for checking, but it doesn't say where to upload to. Do you guys know where to do this? Or shall you email your document to fast stream support email address? I am confused. Thanks !
I see. Did you just reply the email directly? I noticed that the email address confirming the offer is actually different the support email address provided within the email.
Has anyone reached out to Fast stream application support with any success? I emailed them two days ago, just wondering how long I might expect to wait for a response TIA!
I received an offer yesterday but looking at last years thread I’m not overly optimistic that the SDIP will be happening in its usual way this year as the majority of civil servants are stilling working from home. Has anyone heard if we are doing the SDIP remotely?
Yeah perhaps it’s too early. I have a feeling we could be waiting a while yet then to be told our locations etc. Last year a lot of SDIP interns weren’t told until June and for many it was a deferral or a remote internship in the end.
Ahh I’ve personally heard back with my offer, I just had a question about the background check which I emailed to ask — I think there are plenty who haven’t heard back with their decision though so you aren’t alone!
