Description


Speaker: Phil WIlson: Civil Service Fast Stream and Early Talent, Cabinet Office

This session seeks to convey how the Civil Service Fast Stream and Early Talent Team has positively advanced the social mobility agenda, shifting the horizons of those from less privileged circumstances. From a position of minimal progress around mobility, considerable change is emerging, including doubling graduate selection success rates for those from lower socio-economic backgrounds and achieving recognition as the top public sector agency within the 2017 UK Social Mobility Employer Index.

Strategies to propel social mobility are highlighted, from attraction to talent identification to development and progression. Approaches include the use of dynamic data monitoring, statistical interrogation, diversity internships, apprenticeships, new selection design and detailed market research. Learning points are shared and future interventions and research expanded.

Phil Wilson is the Chief Psychologist and Chief Assessor of the Civil Service Fast Stream and Early Talent Team - focusing on the design, diversity and evaluation of the Fast Stream graduate assessment process along with the Fast Track Apprenticeship scheme. He also oversees the multi-award winning Summer Diversity Internship Programme, Early Diversity Internship Programme, Autism Internship Programme and Intern Coaching Programme and other positive action and outreach activities. Prior to this role he was Head of Occupational Psychology at the London Fire Brigade, as well as Acting Head of Occupational Psychology for Greater Manchester Police and has operated as a consultant for a range of industries. He has presented at numerous professional conferences, undertaken a variety of media activities and chaired national work psychology committees.

The presentation will last about 50 minutes and will be followed by approximately 30 minutes of questions and answers.
