Utopy welcomes its first civil service secondee


Having withstood the rigours of the Civil Service Fast-Track secondee recruitment process, we are delighted to welcome Sam Barnett to the Utopy team. 

Sam’s diverse experience across government departments, stands him in good stead as begins to help Utopy consider how best to diversify our income portfolio. Sam will play a crucial role in developing Utopy’s Charity Fast-Track enterprise – with a particular focus on researching the various avenues to enable Charity Fast-Track to offer apprenticeship-accredited training to the charity sector.

The charity secondments within the Fast-Stream programme aim to offer secondees a chance to experience a different working environment, alongside colleagues driven to make a social impact. The roles helps secondees gain a greater understanding of how the nonprofit sector operates and how it interacts with government.

We hope Sam enjoys his time with us – he’s certainly taken to the different dress code with ease!
