*Please note that you can undertake an apprenticeship at the same, or lower, level as a qualification that you already hold. However,  if the apprenticeship is in the same subject area, then you must pick a level higher than the one you currently hold*

Recruitment Process

Stage 1 - Application

The job advert will be open for 2-3 weeks; when it closes we will sift through applications, this process will take a further week. In total, the application stage will take an average of 4 weeks.

Stage 2 - Interview

If successful at the application stage, you will then be invited to an interview. This should last no longer than an hour and you will be assessed on Cabinet Office behaviours and strengths. Interviews for all the successful candidates will be held over a 2-3 week period.

Stage 3 - Matching and On-Boarding

If you are successful at all previous stages then congratulations, you have secured yourself a place at the Cabinet Office! From this point, we will be working to match you to a suitable role/qualification and your pre-employment checks,* and security clearance will be initiated.

* Pre-employment checks are completed for all Civil Servants to ensure we are employing people entitled to work in the UK and with the honesty, integrity and values needed for government-related work.  Pre-employment checks and security clearance are two separate processes and in total, can take anywhere from 8-14 weeks so please be patient and have that in mind when applying for the role.  If there are any problems, at any stage, we will be in touch with you.
