About Government Economic & Social research
The Government Economic Service (GES) is the professional body for economists in the UK civil service. Since its foundation in 1964, GES economists have been involved in decision making across government based on analysis and evidence, in order to make meaningful change to the lives of UK citizens.
The Civil Service helps keep the UK prosperous and secure, supporting the government in implementing their commitments and delivering high-quality services for the public.
The Government Economic Service Degree Apprenticeship Programme (GES-DAP) is relevant to all central government departments and agencies. Many are already committed to recruiting apprentices through the programme, including HMRC, HM Treasury, Department for Work and Pensions, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Home Office, Department for Education, and the Department for Transport.
We employ over 420,000 people from across the UK. Our core values are integrity, honesty, impartiality and objectivity, and we are committed to recruiting people from a range of different backgrounds.
The Government Economic Service Degree Apprenticeship Programme (GESDAP) is the UK’s first economics degree apprenticeship, we will give you the opportunity to gain valuable experience whilst receiving a tuition fee-free degree awarded by a TEF Gold university, The University of Kent.
