The deadline for new applications is now 11.00pm on Sunday 19th September.
The Cabinet Office Call for Expressions of Interest includes full details of this opportunity and includes comprehensive information on the eligibility requirements and the selection and appointment process. There is no requirement for applicants to be UK nationals.
