Review of Fast Stream Recruitment and Selection (7 February 2014)
The review looked at whether Fast Stream recruitment and selection is compliant with the statutory requirement for appointment to the Civil Service to be on merit on the basis of fair and open competition (as expressed in the Recruitment Principles). The Commission has undertaken its review by analysing material provided by Civil Service Resourcing (who now own and operate the Fast Stream) and observing Fast Stream selection processes.
The review concluded that the Fast Stream is compliant with the Recruitment Principles. The report explores this conclusion in more detail and also includes some wider observations about the Fast Stream recruitment model more generally.
