We also have a number of fixed-term appointees and take successful candidates from centrally run civil service recruitment schemes such as the Fast Stream Development Programme.
We do not run graduate recruitment or work placement schemes.
DCMS funds over 40 independent arms-length bodies (ALBs) across all of its sectors, from gambling to galleries, broadcasting to the performing arts, film to football. Examples include: Arts Council England, Ofcom and Sport England.
ALBs are run by boards that help us make and apply policies in areas where expertise and understanding from particular specialists outside government is needed.
