About the role:
As a Charityworks Graduate Trainee you will undertake a full time job in a partner charity or housing association, and take part in an acclaimed leadership programme, which will introduce you to everything you need to lead and work in the non-profit sector.
In your placement you might be providing vital business support and evaluation at a national charity like NSPCC, leading on the improvement of infrastructure projects with a leading housing charity, driving international business with the RNLI, or serving a community in a local project. Wherever you’re placed, you’ll have the chance to make a real impact through your work.
Alongside your placement, you will take part in a leadership programme. You’ll be matched with a Charityworks Programme Manager and external mentor to help you make the most of the year. Twice a month you’ll come together with your fellow trainees and leaders across the sector to explore and debate the key issues affecting your work and society as a whole. You’ll also produce your own research, helping to raise your profile and develop your understanding of your environment.
At the end of the 12-month scheme you’ll have the experience and skills to kick-start your professional career in the UK social sector and beyond. Charityworks graduates are highly desired with 98% securing employment within 3 months if they were looking for it. Typically, over 66% of graduates stay in their host organisations at the end of the year, and 96% of graduates since 2009 have remained within the non-profit or public sector – some have even gone on to start their own organisations.
