That said, they also have the roughest working hours (8am - 12am almost 7 days a week - and for the more intense Desks, 2-3am is the norm). You will be worked to the bone. You will be shouted at and the working environment is not for the faint of heart.

Its also a boiler-pot chock full of elites. Most FSOs (even the non scholars) are either local university scholars or hail from top universities abroad (Oxbridge/HYPSM and the ilk). Do a simple search on LinkedIn if you donít believe me. Even second uppers are rare. A significant proportion are also law graduates or lawyers by training (given both the relevance of the role as well as the fact that it is the only role in the CS - other than the Legal Service - which pays well enough to make it a reasonable alternative to practicing law in the private sector).[Note: I have to caveat that I am talking about FSOs in the Political and Economic track.]

Put simply, it is the only job in the civil service where you can hope to draw mid five-figures a month in under 5 years - if you get in (one of the lucky 20-30 out of the 5000 or so applicants annually) and if you survive.
mid five-figures a month is 50k a month. and you can get it in under 5 years? smells like serious bs

One thingís clear though, you can usually identify a personís station from the way he speaks and writes. iíll just leave it as that.
honey, nobody cares about your opinion. this is a forum. welcome to the internet.

mid 5 figure is actually closer to 55k/month which also happens to be minister's salary.... Our ministers must be very underpaid if they're drawing the equivalent of a 5 year fso

Not the poster but thought your comment was silly. If you think that no one cares about your opinion why are you here? ((;

Please la, get off your high horse. When I listen to how HSK and CCS speak and write, I also don't think they're anything special. Most of the people that join the CS can't get accepted to the competitive jobs in the private sector, and that's a fact.
